"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No it is not.  HTML of any version only runs in the browser and not on the server.  You can write a form page in HTML to upload files but that isn't enough.  A program in a server side language such as ASP or PHP is required to receive uploaded files and save them to the disk on the server.

Hi,

From only HTML5 its not possible, but you can create a web service and call it from jquery ajax post method to upload the file to server or store it in a database.

Here is an example: HTML5 File Drag and Drop Upload With jQuery and ASP.NET


Hope this helps.
