Take a car. Move it to the garage. Now move it to the shops. You can only "MOVE" it to one place at a time.

Now, let's do something to the image that you can't do to your car.

Copy it.


$name= $_FILES["myfile"]["name"];
$temp= $_FILES["myfile"]["tmp_name"]; 
$uploadedfile=$name;
move_uploaded_file($temp,$uploadedfile);
copy($uploadedfile,"newlocation/".$uploadedfile);

Please read the man page here:
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.move-uploaded-file.php

You need to test the results of this function to see if it worked!

You can't move something that doesn't exist since its been moved already.

Try php copy instead http://us2.php.net/copy

I posted this to PHP.net.  I guess there is always something new under the sun ;-)
<?php // RAY_temp_upload_example.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo "<pre>" . PHP_EOL;

// IF A FILE HAS BEEN UPLOADED
if (!empty($_FILES))
{
    // SHOW THE UPLOADED FILES
    print_r($_FILES);

    // TRY TO MOVE THE FILE TWICE - SECOND MOVE RETURNS FALSE
    if (!move_uploaded_file($_FILES["userfile"]["tmp_name"], $_FILES["userfile"]["name"])) echo "CANNOT MOVE {$_FILES["userfile"]["name"]}" . PHP_EOL;
    if (!move_uploaded_file($_FILES["userfile"]["tmp_name"], $_FILES["userfile"]["name"])) echo "CANNOT MOVE {$_FILES["userfile"]["name"]}" . PHP_EOL;

    // SHOW THE UPLOADED FILES AFTER THE MOVE - NO VISIBLE CHANGE
    print_r($_FILES);
}

// END OF PHP, PUT UP THE HTML FORM TO GET THE FILE
?>
<!-- The data encoding type, enctype, MUST be specified as below -->
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
    <!-- MAX_FILE_SIZE must precede the file input field -->
    <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="300000" />
    <!-- Name of input element determines name in $_FILES array -->
    Send this file: <input name="userfile" type="file" />
    <input type="submit" value="Send File" />
</form>
