PHP Question

move_uploaded_file failed to open stream: Permission denied - Mac

While i am trying to move_uploaded_file in php with following code :


move_uploaded_file($_FILES['fileupload2']['tmp_name'], "images/".$_FILES['fileupload2']['name']);


I've got this error saying:

Warning: move_uploaded_file(images/VIDEO_TS.VOB): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/Week3/Lesson2/do_upload.php on line 24

i tried in the terminal and didn't work:

sudo CHMOD 775 /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/Week3/Lesson2/do_upload.php

sudo chmod -R 0755 /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/Week3/Lesson2/do_upload.php

sudo chown nobody /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/Week3/Lesson2/do_upload.php

I am still getting the error and i am using Yosemite, any other solution ?


My solution was to give the permission for the images folder and the php file, by going to the file > Right click > Get info > and then change all the permissions to read&write as the following picture.
