Hi ,
I get this error message when using a HMTL/php scripts for uploading a file:

/home/fheleno1/public_html/uploads/PhueqG88mpofkIM0nOd
Warning: move_uploaded_file(/home/fheleno1/public_html/uploads/PhueqG88mpofkIM0nOd/parte2.htm) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/fheleno1/public_html/teste/Enviarficheiro.php on line 74

Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move '/tmp/phpOzQC3m' to '/home/fheleno1/public_html/uploads/PhueqG88mpofkIM0nOd/parte2.htm' in /home/fheleno1/public_html/teste/Enviarficheiro.php on line 74
erro


This is the relevant part of PHP script:

$dbh="fheleno1_ficheiro";

$ligacao=mysql_connect ("localhost", "fheleno1_fheleno", "+antunes1*") or die ('Não posso conectar á base de dados porque: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db ("fheleno1_ficheiro");
$num=rand(1,20);
 //$num=4;
 echo $num;
$sql= "SELECT * FROM ficheiro   WHERE num = '$num' ";

//echo rand( 1,20);

$resultado=mysql_query($sql,$ligacao) or die(mysql_error());
 while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($resultado)){
$codigo=$row['codigo'];
$directoria=$row['directoria'];
  }
  //$directoria=substr($directoria, 1);
  //if(substr($directoria,0,1) eq " "){
  $directoria=substr($directoria,1);
  ;
  //sleep (5);

 $upload= '/home/fheleno1/public_html/uploads/'.$directoria;

print $upload;

 

 $uploads_dir = $upload;
                                 
        $tmp_name = $_FILES['F1']['tmp_name'];
        $name = $_FILES['F1']['name'];
        if (!move_uploaded_file($tmp_name, $uploads_dir."/".$name)){
          echo "erro";
          }  
       
   

TIP: if I force $num = 4 instead of randon or other value the script will work.

To run the complete script please use Http://tra-tec.com

Please help

Best regards

Fernando

Check the permissions on the directory where you are trying to save the file. You are fetching a record from database based upon $num. So name of folder for value '4' and other values will be different. Check the difference in the value of 'directoria' for record with $num = 4 and for any other value. Also compare the permissions.

Hey,

As devlab2012 mentioned you need to check the permissions of the directory you are uploading to, and possibly the parent directory.  Is the directory you are uploading to being created on the fly?  If so you may need to chmod it before uploading to it

ie:
// Everything for owner, read and execute for others
chmod($upload, 0755);
//continue upload process...

Hope that helps,

Michael.

better do chmod(777) to upload directory with your FTP client
