    Thumbs up How to get a link from an uploaded file?

    PHP Code:
    @move_uploaded_file$upload_Temp $uploadFile); 
    $upload_URL "uploads/".$upload_Name ;
    $uploadFile "uploads/".$upload_Name ;
    //Writes the information to the database
    mysql_connect("localhost""freak_admin""what") or die(mysql_error()); 
    mysql_select_db("freak_doc") or die(mysql_error()); 
    mysql_query("INSERT INTO `users_cv` VALUES ('$id', '$name', '$upload_Name')"); 

    hello Developers

    i have tried to find my way around this but no show.from the php admin everything works fine including the name of the file visible.

    the above code works when i view the info on my view.php(the field for name shows)

    however the field for upload_name is blank because the idea I had isnt working below

    <td>&nbsp;echo "<a href=" ./ $upload_URL . basename($row_users['file']) . ">

    Can someone help me with what i am doing wrong ?

    You can try with :
    <td>&nbsp;echo "<a href=./uploads/" . basename($row_users['file']) . ">

    Hello Hong

    Function basename(path,suffix)
    $path = "/testweb/home.php";
    //Show filename with file extension
    echo basename($path) ."<br/>";
    //Show filename without file extension
    echo basename($path,".php");

    So your link is : ./ $upload_URL . basename($row_users['file']) .
    you check it again and change it.
    The output of the code above will be:

    You have to escape the strings that get inserted in to a database.

    mysql_ commands are going to be retired very soon, so switching to the alternative mysqli_ or PDO methods of accessing a database is going to be an important change that you should consider doing now otherwise you will be rewriting your database routines very soon.
    If your post falls off the page, bump it. ...
    Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    You didn't insert the filename in the database.
    You only inserted id,name, and upload_Name.
    mysql_query("INSERT INTO `users_cv` VALUES ('$id', '$name', '$upload_Name')");
