Move uploaded file function is not working

0 votes

I have been working on a website and I want the user to be able to upload files which is why I'm trying to learn how to do that. I have researched it and it said that I had to use the function move_uploaded_file(). I wrote the code just like it was on the example, but it wouldn't work. Please help me, I'm new at these. Here's what I've done so far:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
          <head> 
          </head> 
<body> 
        <form action="upload_file.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data"> 
            <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="30000" /> 
            <input type="file"name="file"> 
            <input type="submit"> 
      </form> 
</body> 
<html>


This is the upload_file.php:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
    <head> 
      <head> 
          <body> 
            <?php 
              $move = "/Users/George/Desktop/uploads/"; 
                echo $_FILES["file"]['name']."<br>"; 
                echo $_FILES["file"]['tmp_name']."<br>"; 
                echo $_FILES["file"]['size']."<br>"; 
                echo $_FILES['file']['error']."<br>"; move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['name'], $move);      ?> 
<body> 
<html>

The file will be stored in a temporary location, so use tmp_name instead of name:

if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'], __DIR__.'/../../uploads/'. $_FILES["image"]['name'])) { 
      echo "Uploaded"; } 
else { 
    echo "File not uploaded"; 
}
