Very simple...

Call you files being uplaoded file1, file2, fileX in the HTML form..

<form method="post" action="uploadprocess.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file1" size="20">
<input type="file" name="file2" size="20">
<input type="file" name="file3" size="20">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">

Then process with code like this:

$ONFILE = "file" . $STARTFILE;

while (isset($HTTP_POST_FILES["$ONFILE"])) {

  // Try!
  $SrcPathFile = $HTTP_POST_FILES["$ONFILE"]["tmp_name"];
  $SrcFileType = $HTTP_POST_FILES["$ONFILE"]["type"];
  $DstFileName = $HTTP_POST_FILES["$ONFILE"]["name"];

  // File Processing
  if (file_exists($SrcPathFile)) {

    // handle it

  $ONFILE = "file" . $STARTFILE;

You may want to update the $HTTP_POST_FILES -> $_FILES depending on PHP
version, etc...

Code from:

good luck..
