  1. <?php
  2. // Configuration - Your Options
  3. $allowed_filetypes = array('.jpg','.gif','.bmp','.png'); // These will be the types of file that will pass the validation.
  4. $max_filesize = 524288; // Maximum filesize in BYTES (currently 0.5MB).
  5. $upload_path = './files/'; // The place the files will be uploaded to (currently a 'files' directory).
  6.  
  7. $filename = $_FILES['userfile']['name']; // Get the name of the file (including file extension).
  8. $ext = substr($filename, strpos($filename,'.'), strlen($filename)-1); // Get the extension from the filename.
  9.  
  10. // Check if the filetype is allowed, if not DIE and inform the user.
  11. if(!in_array($ext,$allowed_filetypes))
  12. die('The file you attempted to upload is not allowed.');
  13.  
  14. // Now check the filesize, if it is too large then DIE and inform the user.
  15. if(filesize($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']) > $max_filesize)
