object oriented programming : Upload file to multiple sites

Hi, I am very new to "object oriented programming". I have this script which I didn't write but have altered and have been using for a while to allow people to upload files to a website. Now I am trying to adapt the same script to upload files to multiple websites specified in an array. This is for a content management system for our websites. I thought I could just stick a foreach loop round most of the script and that would work. However, no matter what I do, I get one file uploaded and the next file is created but has no content. I have been trying to upload image files but the script should work with all files as required, including .pl perl files. Just to make it clear, I get the correct image file in all websites but only the first one in the @sitess array actually has been uploaded, the others have no content and are zero bytes in size.

Any help very much appreciated. Thanks very much.
