Ubuntu7.10+Apache2+PHP5 Files not uploading...

P: 2
I've been trying to track this down between two "similar" systems (one that appears to work and the other that doesn't)... and I'm decided to ask for help.

I have an Ubuntu 7.10 based system, with Apache2 + PHP5 installed, but when I attempt to implement even a SIMPLE file upload script, the files are not getting stored into the "/tmp" directory. I have validated that my maximum upload & post sizes are 10M... and I'm attempting to upload either a simple text file (helloworld.txt) or a small 30kb jpeg and neither are placed into the /tmp directory. The filename for the /tmp directory is displayed from the upload_file.php script to the screen, but that file doesn't exist.

Here is an example of the scripts:
<form action="upload_file.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<label for="file">Filename:</label>
<input type="file" name="file" id="file" />
<br />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />

if ($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0)
echo "Error: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"] . "<br />";
echo "Upload: " . $_FILES["file"]["name"] . "<br />";
echo "Type: " . $_FILES["file"]["type"] . "<br />";
echo "Size: " . ($_FILES["file"]["size"] / 1024) . " Kb<br />";
echo "Stored in: " . $_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"];

Any ideas?

Here is the output I get from attempting to post a small JPEG file.

Upload: gdg.jpg
Type: image/jpeg
Size: 14.5869140625 Kb
Stored in: /tmp/phpJCyUQl

And unfortunately the file (/tmp/phpJCyUQl) doesn't exist.

Any help would be appreciated.

/tmp/phpJCyUQl is a temporary name for uploaded file. You have to copy() it to other place.
