I'm new to file uploads, however I managed to get it working.  Are you
copying the file after its been uploaded?  If not you need to do this as the
temp file is destroyed after the script has finished running so you need to
copy it if you wish to store it.  You also will have to chmod 777 to the
directory you wish to copy the file to.  It may help if we can see the
tutorial to try and find out exactly what you are doing.

I've been working from "Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP &
MySQL" By Kevin Yank and its really helpful it covers file uploads.  I'm
also using "PHP and MySQL Web Development" by Luke Wellling and Laura
Thomson.  This covers file uploads also, infact I found it more helpful for
file uploads.

Hope this helps.
