You might check out:

It looks like their directory is an absolute path.  I don't know how
that might work in a chrooted environment, but I don't think your
'../dir1' makes sense if it is expecting an absolute path.  The copy
doc doesn't state explicitly.  But, it's probably better to use the
uploaded file functions -- copy doesn't save you anything as the temp
file ought to be automatically deleted at the end of the script

Here's my suggestion:


if ( isset( $FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'] ) && is_uploaded_file(
$FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'] ) ) {
    move_uploaded_file( $FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'], $dir .
$FILES['userfile']['name'] );


Good luck,
