[PHP] - [Upload Multiple Images]

[Initial Setup]
1. Create a folder "uploads" on the server
2. Create file.php and upload.php and use the code below

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="upload.php" method="post">
Image1: <input name="userfile[]" type="file" /><br />
Image2: <input name="userfile[]" type="file" /><br />
Image3: <input name="userfile[]" type="file" /><br />
Image4: <input name="userfile[]" type="file" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Upload" />

  $success = 0;
  $fail = 0;
  $uploaddir = 'uploads/';
  for ($i=0;$i<4;$i++)
    $uploadfile = $uploaddir . basename($_FILES['userfile']['name'][$i]);
    $ext = strtolower(substr($uploadfile,strlen($uploadfile)-3,3));
    if (preg_match("/(jpg|gif|png|bmp)/",$ext))
     if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'][$i], $uploadfile))
     echo "Error Uploading the file. Retry after sometime.\n";
  echo "<br> Number of files Uploaded:".$success;
  echo "<br> Number of files Failed:".$fail;

I have a script for upload in my script, but this still better when uploading many files.
Please see my script upload

@Samantha & Ilango: You have to initialize $i to avoid this error.

You can also change settings in your php.ini file settings

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
