The way my web hosting server was configured is that files uploaded

name before I use the move_uploaded_file command to the directory I need
the file to move to.

No. Only the 'root' user on the server can change file ownership.

I am also wondering what the IF syntax is to see if the file upload was
successful. Somehow I would like to know if
move_uploaded_file( $userfile , $destination_file_name);

RTFM:
http://php.net/move_uploaded_file

If filename is not a valid upload file, then no action will occur, and move_uploaded_file() will return FALSE.

If filename is a valid upload file, but cannot be moved for some reason, no action will occur, and move_uploaded_file() will return FALSE. Additionally, a warning will be issued.
