Was wondering if there were issues using move_uploaded_file on localhost.

In my testing, it always seems to fail.

Also, the tmp_name for the $_FILES array is empty. Why would that be?

You should post the value of $_FILES['usr_name']['error']

Details here: http://php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.errors.php

Could be you are missing a /tmp dir or the file is bigger than upload_max_filesize ... that value will clarify things ...

We pass the $_FILES to a function as a parameter called $files. If I print_r($files), error = 1

upload_tmp_dir = "c:/wamp/tmp"
upload_max_filesize = 2M

File is 3.62 MB so I will modify and test again.

I already tested my mods online and they work. I will test localhost again later.
