For those of you trying to make the upload work with IIS on windows XP/2000/XP Media and alike here is a quick todo.

  1. Once you have created subdirectories "uploads/" in the same directory wher you code is running use the code from oportocala above and to make absolutely sure sure that the file you are trying to right is written under that folder. ( I recomend printing it using echo $uploadfile; )
  2. In windows explorer browse to the upload directory created above and share it. To do that execute the following substeps.
    1. Right click the folder click "sharing and security..."
    2. Check 'Share this folder on the network'
    3. Check 'Allow network users to change my files' ( THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT )
    4. Click 'ok' or 'apply'
  3. you can then go in the IIS to set read and write permissions for it. To do that execute the followin substeps.
    1. Open IIS (Start/Controp Panel (classic View)/ Admistrative tools/Internet Information Service
    2. Browse to your folder (the one we created above)
    3. right click and select properties.
    4. in the Directory tab, make sure, READ, WRITE, AND DIRECTORY BROWSING are checked.
    5. For the security freaks out there, You should also make sure that 'execute permissions:' are set to Script only or lower (DO NOT SET IT TO 'script and executable)'( that is because someone could upload a script to your directory and run it. And, boy, you do not want that to happen).

There U go.
