Count in upload files in codeigniter

I can't understand why this happen;

I select 3 files in postman and _POST it.

But it always return 5.

I think count($_FILES['filename']) return files count number but it is not.

So I check the file size and count it, same return, 5.

This is my codeigniter code, it is simple.

If you know about it, please help me

@Polaris,

It will always return 5 because the Image element that you are posting from PostMan isn't a array.

Second thing is when you post a file to a script it always have

$_FILES['Image'] => array(
    [name] => '',
    [type] => '',
    [tmp_name] => '',
    [error] => '',
    [size] =>''
);

So use the Image name as Image[] , make sure you have square backets"[]" after the Image key name.

Right now everytime you write count($_FILES['Image']); It will return 5. Use [] in the key name
