PHP move_uploaded_file fails for ZIP files but not for JPG or PDF

I have a file upload page which uses AJAX to upload three versions of a print document and process them into an image library. The files are uploaded one at a time in the order PDF, JPG, ZIP. The PDF and JPG files are being accepted and moved into the folder for processing but the ZIP file fails after completing the upload. All three files have exactly the same name except for the extension. The error log is listing two errors, a "no such file or directory" error and an "unable to move file" error.

Is there reason that it would reject ZIPs but not PDFs and JPGs? PHP version is 5.3.3.

Don't know of anything that might cause this.  Are they all being moved to the same directory?

@Ray, Bull's Eye!

I thought they were. I wrote the code several months ago and didn't remember or notice that zip files were being moved directly to the post-processed folder. In this case, a new category was being created and the folder which would accept the post-processed JPG and PDF hadn't been created yet. I've added a line in the script to create the folder if it doesn't already exist.

I had already figured it out and was testing the fix when I received the notice that you had commented. But you get the golden egg anyway.
