Thanks to both of you. 

It seems the problem lies with Apache, actually. I did try the script with my 
install of lighttpd on the same server, and it goes flawlessly. It's not the 
first time this apache server give me trouble. So I'll use lighttpd and give 
one finger to this particular apache server. 

It's just curious that it stopped working one day.

Thanks anyway !

Has your php.ini file been changed at all? If the max upload setting and
memory settings have been reduced, it will affect uploads. How large is
the file you are trying to upload? And lastly, does the script work on a
local testing server?
