How To Upload File To Server Using PHP & Save The Path In MySQL

When it comes to uploading file, the best way to do it, would be to upload the file to a file server and save the path of the file in the database. In this case, I have used PHP to upload the file to a directory and save the path of the file in the MySQL database.

Basically, you will need a simple HTML form and a PHP code to upload the file. So, here’s the HTML form.

And here’s the PHP code. Do note I have also added the logic to check whether the file is already there in the destination folder before the upload takes place.

So, that’s it for this tutorial. Stay tuned for more.
