    I have a form created that allows users to upload documents. What I would like, is when the document is uploaded, it goes into a specified directory. Nothing else is needed to be done with the file, so I don't need any scripts to process anything. Getting it into this directory on the Web Server is my problem. I don't know how to do that. Below is my source code for the form. Can someone give me some tips on how I get the file to upload into the directory? The path where I want the documents to be uploaded to is: Thanks.

    <input type="submit" value="Send">

    you'll need php, asp or perl/cgi to achieve that. does your webhost support one of those?

    then it's just a matter of making the script the will enable you to upload the file to the specific dir.

    Be careful with malicous scripts and viruses when allowing people to upload any doc to your site. Have good validation.
