<?php
$target = “”;
$target = $target . basename( $_FILES[‘uploaded’][‘name’]) ;
$ok=1;

//This is our size condition
if ($uploaded_size > 50000000)
{
echo “Your file is too large.<br>”;
$ok=0;
}

//Limit file type condition
if ($uploaded_type ==”text/php”)
{
echo “No PHP files<br>”;
$ok=0;
}

//Check that $ok was not set to 0 by an error
if ($ok==0)
{
Echo “Sorry your file was not uploaded”;
}

//If everything is ok, try to upload it
else
{
if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES[‘uploaded’][‘tmp_name’], $target))
{
echo “The file “. basename( $_FILES[‘uploadedfile’][‘name’]). ” has been uploaded”;
}
else
{
echo “Upload a file to the website – limit 50MB.”;
}
}
?>

<html>
<form enctype=”multipart/form-data” action=”index.php” method=”POST”>
Please choose a file:<br /><br /> <input name=”uploaded” type=”file” /><br /><br /><br />
<input type=”submit” value=”Upload” /><br /><br /><br />
</form>
</html>

Note: security controls need to be built around this code.  This code is for .php server side processing.
