    Trouble with a form for file upload
    Hi all,

    I'm trying to get a file upload tag to work on my local php/mysql setup.

    Here's the code (relevant parts):

    <form method="post" action="insert.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="text" name="short" size=50>
    <input type="file" name="userfile" size=50>
    <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="30000">

    I also bumped the "upload_max_file_size" variable in php.ini 5M

    That and everything else I've tried all look right to me, but the form won't pass a value. It passes along the "short" value just fine, but the "userfile" value isn't getting sent to "insert.php" in Firefox.

    The Safari browser just dies completely, won't submit the form.

    Any ideas?

    Try taking the size=50 out of the input field for the type=file, just in case it's trying to read the directory path and it's longer than 50 characters.
