Recently, I have been working on a project that involved uploading multiple files to the server with PHP. There are several ways to go about doing this: 1) Upload each image one at a time (but that really isn’t a multi uploading way) or 2) Place all the images in an array. Option 1 is pretty much ruled out because you aren’t uploading multiple images at once; And Option 2 is the way to go because that is the purpose of this tutorial, but there is a small problem that you might not be aware: over exceeding the posted max file size that is set in your
php.ini file. Assuming you don’t have your own server, and depending on your host, you might be able to ask them to bump this up to a more reasonable amount other than the default 2MB. But usually you are limited because you most likely have a shared web host and they don’t want you to upload too large of a file to disturb the other users on that server, or they don’t want you to take too much space. Which is understandable.
Here is the sample
(of course the files aren’t being uploaded… just the page refreshes letting you know if it worked correctly or not).
And here are the files used to do the magic: zip
