Implementing Profile Photo Upload for Student Database

hi there,

I am currently develop a student database system for my faculty. I am using the PHP together with MySQL.
I am thinking to create an option for student to upload their profile photo but I could not find any proper
instruction or tutorial of doing that.

Where can I look for the proper references?

I just thinking to get some sample scripts/instructions where people will register online with their picture uploaded. Then, one will be able toview the profile showing the picture that being uploaded earlier.

Here’s the code processing the file uploading:

 /* Script name: uploadFile.php
  * Description: Uploads a file via HTTP with a POST form.
    if($_FILES[‘pix’][‘tmp_name’] == “none”)
      echo “<p style=’font-weight: bold’>
        File did not successfully upload. Check the
            file size. File must be less than 500K.</p>”;
      echo “<p style=’font-weight: bold’>
        File is not a picture. Please try another
      $temp_file = $_FILES[‘pix’][‘tmp_name’];
      echo “<p style=’font-weight: bold’>
        The file has successfully uploaded:

Code for the file upload form:

<!-- Program Name:
     Description:  Displays a form to upload a file -->
<head><title>File Upload</title></head>
<ol><li>Enter the file name of the product picture you
        want to upload or use the browse button
        to navigate to the picture file.</li>
    <li>When the path to the picture file shows in the
        text field, click the Upload Picture
<div align=”center”><hr />
<form enctype=”multipart/form-data”
        action=”uploadFile.php” method=”POST”>
  <input type=”hidden” name=”MAX_FILE_SIZE”
         value=”500000” />
  <input type=”file” name=”pix” size=”60” />
  <p><input type=”submit” name=”Upload”
        value=”Upload Picture” />

I have no idea where is the file being uploaded to. It is not uploaded to the location as it should be. Please guide me through. Thanks in advance.
