Trying to copy this script

I like this file upload script

Uploaded to my server

am trying to duplicate the effect at
I look at the console to see what the deal is

How do I change the MIME type of the 3 style sheets

got it, some of my links were off

ok, am trying to install this bad boy, and got a few problems…

I noticed the php file to handle the upload is located in the jQuery-File-Upload-9.18.0/server/php directory, I want to know if its possible change the location of that file to php (my folder) so I can simply add the file to my other php files and delete the jQuery-File-Upload-9.18.0 folder, I looked at the Uploadhandler.php file and saw this…

 'upload_dir' => dirname($this->get_server_var('SCRIPT_FILENAME')).'/files/', 

and Im guessing I can change that code to allow uploads to a different directory, like

'upload_dir' => dirname($this->get_server_var('SCRIPT_FILENAME')).'../images/properties/'.$_POST['propertyID'],

I would think it would be as simple as changing the action of the form

<form id="fileupload" action="//" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data" 
data-ng-app="demo" data-ng-controller="DemoFileUploadController" data-file-upload="options" 
data-ng-class="{'fileupload-processing': processing() || loadingFiles}">


I thought the “…/” operator had to be at the start of a file path, not in the middle?

ok, I think this will be ok?

'upload_dir' => '../images/properties/'.$_POST['propertyID'],

Im trying to customize this plugin, I uploaded the DEMO to
which works great…
But im trying to get it working at
and am having some problems,
I am trying to change the upload directory from the default (server/php/uploads) to another directory depending upon a hidden form variable (…/images/properties/{$_POST[‘propertyID’])
I am clueless on how to bring over the variable to the php page when the form is submitted

Surely it just arrives as a $_POST variable with whatever name you gave it in your <input type="hidden" code.?

sure, heres the forn

do I simply change the php file from

'upload_dir' => dirname($this->get_server_var('SCRIPT_FILENAME')).'/files/',
'upload_url' => $this->get_full_url().'/files/',


'upload_dir' => '../images/properties/'.$_POST['propertyID'].'/',
'upload_url' => $this->get_full_url().'../images/properties/'.$_POST['propertyID'].'/',

But since im changing the URL of the PHP file, how do I direct the form to be submitted to it then?

Something along those lines, as long as you fix the mismatched quotes on that line - you open the name with doubles and close it with singles, hence the syntax colouring is all wrong.

I still don’t think you can put “…/” inside a URL, though I’ve never tried it.

ok, as of now, this is the result

(Which works and the uploaded content (images) are there.
I look at the source and notice the form tag

<form id="fileupload" action="//" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

Thats a little confusing to me…
I simply put


in the PHP page which handles the uploads and now the result is

(But the images are still there)

when I try and upload a picture I get
