Hi i am trying to upload pdf files into phpmyadmin with this form but i get this error. Is there anyway to do it? Also, i have the rest of the code for the php script
<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<table width="350" border="0" cellpadding="1"
cellspacing="1" class="box">
<td>please select a file</td></tr>
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE"
<input name="userfile" type="file" id="userfile">
<td width="80"><input name="upload"
type="submit" class="box" id="upload" value=" Upload "></td>

$fileName = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
$tmpName = $_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'];
$fileSize = $_FILES['userfile']['size'];
$fileType = $_FILES['userfile']['type'];
$fileType=(get_magic_quotes_gpc()==0 ? mysql_real_escape_string(
$_FILES['userfile']['type']) : mysql_real_escape_string(
stripslashes ($_FILES['userfile'])));
$fp = fopen($tmpName, 'r');
$content = fread($fp, filesize($tmpName));
$content = addslashes($content);
$fileName = addslashes($fileName);
$con = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'root') or die(mysql_error());
$db = mysql_select_db('olearyinternational', $con);
$query = "INSERT INTO upload (name, size, type, content ) ".
"VALUES ('$fileName', '$fileSize', '$fileType', '$content')";
mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
echo "<br>File $fileName uploaded<br>";
}else { echo "file upload failed"; }

You should check for the quotes. May be conflicting.

The OP probably should search for "upload pdf files into phpmyadmin", although you don't upload files to PHPMyAdmin but add them into a DB, which then can be verified in PMA.

That form doesn't upload anything anywhere that I can see. It lacks the action attribute.

Hello, by using this code I have uploaded pdf file in phpmyadmin. Firstly save as upload.php .You can try this code:


$file = rand(1000,100000)."-".$_FILES['file']['name'];
$file_loc = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'];
$file_size = $_FILES['file']['size'];
$file_type = $_FILES['file']['type'];

$sql="INSERT INTO tbl_uploads(file,type,size) VALUES('$file','$file_type','$file_size')";
