PHP Error - Uploading a file

I'm trying to write some php to upload a file to a folder on my webserver. Here's what I have:

<?php
if ( !empty($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']) ) {
move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], './' . $_FILES['file']['name']);
header('Location: http://www.mywebsite.com/dump/');
exit;
}
?>

<html>
<head>
<title>Dump Upload</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Upload a File</h1>
<form action="upload.php" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000000" />
Select the File:<br /><input type="file" name="file" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Upload" />
</form>
</body>
</html>


I'm getting these errors:


Warning: move_uploaded_file(./test.txt) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in E:\inetpub\vhosts\mywebsite.com\httpdocs\dump\upload.php on line 3

Warning: move_uploaded_file() [function.move-uploaded-file]: Unable to move 'C:\WINDOWS\Temp\phpA30E.tmp' to './test.txt' in E:\inetpub\vhosts\mywebsite.com\httpdocs\dump\upload.php on line 3

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at E:\inetpub\vhosts\mywebsite.com\httpdocs\dump\upload.php:3) in E:\inetpub\vhosts\mywebsite.com\httpdocs\dump\upload.php on line 4


PHP version 4.4.7
Running IIS on a Windows box. This particular file/folder has 777 permissions.

Any ideas?

Answer

As it's Windows, there is no real 777. If you're using chmod, check the Windows-related comments.

Check that the IIS Account can access (read, write, modify) these two folders:

E:\inetpub\vhosts\mywebsite.com\httpdocs\dump\
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
