What would help is what version(s) of php are you using?

Things to check:

If php < 4.1.X then $_FILES[] is not available, use $HTTP_POST_FILES[],

If upload fails for any reason then (I believe), $_FILES['pdfFile']['name'] 
would be empty. So:

php.ini --> upload enabled? Are the other settings governing uploads set to 
reasonable values? Check manual > Handling file uploads > Common Pitfalls to 
see what these settings are.
