     This article is for people who are interested in how PHP deals with uploaded files and databases. It walks through the steps of creating a database-driven picture repository, and includes the code to set you on the correct track. It starts out with how PHP deals with forms, then progresses to files, it deals with PHP's interaction with MySQL, and finally ends putting it all together to build a simple picture repository. The tutorial is 11 pages and is in PDF format.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Great work on the tutorial, it is a great start for us those that want to learn to upload files. Perhaps (if you havent done this already) some other tutorials that go into greater depth of some of the areas of this tutorial would be very useful.

There are several spots in this tutorial that say we wont go into that in this tutorial but are still good info to have.

Thanks for taking the time to share.
