hi you don't have to bother your self of such things. html does it all
for you. All you have to do is manage the uploaded file which is put
as a temporary file on the server temporary folder. Here's some tip:

temporary file in your server: $_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"] 
name of your file (the uploaded): $_FILES["file"]["name"]

now use move_uploaded_file  function to where ever location you want
to put your file on your server.

cheers!
