Step1:

{code type=codetype}
<table width=”400″ border=”0″ align=”center” cellpadding=”0″ cellspacing=”1″ bgcolor=”#CCCCCC”>

</tr>
<tr>
<td align=”center”><input type=”submit” name=”Submit” value=”Upload” /></td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</form>
</tr>
</table>

{/code}

Step2:

Create file limit_upload_ac.php

|—|——————— code ——————–|—|

{code type=codetype}

<?php
// Define file size limit
$limit_size=50000;

//set where you want to store files
//in this example we keep file in folder upload
//$HTTP_POST_FILES[‘ufile’][‘name’]; = upload file name
//for example upload file name cartoon.gif . $path will be upload/cartoon.gif
$path= “upload/”.$HTTP_POST_FILES[‘ufile’][‘name’];

if($ufile !=none)
{
// Store upload file size in $file_size
$file_size=$HTTP_POST_FILES[‘ufile’][‘size’];

if($file_size >= $limit_size){
echo “Your file size is over limit<BR>”;
echo “Your file size = “.$file_size;
echo ” K”;
echo “<BR>File size limit = 50000 k”;
}
else {
//copy file to where you want to store file
if(copy($HTTP_POST_FILES[‘ufile’][‘tmp_name’], $path))
{
echo “Successful<BR/>”;
echo “<img src=\”$path\” width=\”150\” height=\”150\”>”;
}
else
{
echo “Copy Error”;
}
}
}
?>

{/code}

Step3:

CHMOD upload folder to 777 (change permission)

This step, do it when you upload to real server. This example, I use CuteFTP, right click at upload folder > FTP Commands > CHMOD
