The web server needs write access to where you're trying to store the files.
Check the directory permissions.  Check with your ISP to make sure there are
solutions other than making the directory world writeable.

Subject: [PHP] uploading a file - here is the error message...

Here is the error I'm receiving when attempting to upload a file....
Warning: Unable to create 'temp/test.txt': Permission denied in
/home/.../www/website/upload3.php on line 11

..could it be that my web host isn't giving me permissions to upload
files ?
