File replace in upload in php

Question by Mervyn

I would like to delete a file that is already exists and add the new one in the same folder.
I have taken the tmp name added it in a session. Deleted the existing already but it not movin in the new one.

$files = $_SESSION['Already'];

Answer by Starx

Try replacing the files. If the files name are exactly same, you don’t need to unlink them. Just using move_uploaded_file() will do.

Its important to know what is causing the error. Check your server error_logs for such informations.
