You running Windows or *nix?  File permissions will play a part in this, 
but use PHP's exec() function to execute MySQL's load data infile. The 
manual has a number of well annotated examples. The big problem may be that 
you'll be executing the command as whatever user the web server is running as.

But before you start reinventing the wheel,  search for "MySQL import csv 
PHP", or something similar, and check out the script sites referred to in 
the links part of the manual. This isn't a new problem and has been 
addressed before.
