PHP File Uploader
simply upload anything!
Today’s websites always combine two things - various content and Internet technologies such as PHP. But to stay current and competitive in an ever changing world, websites must be updated on a regular basis in order to refresh the available information. Despite all shiny technologies this is where some hard work steps in - website maintenance teams must insert new files into the existing infrastructure, which is usually tedious but responsible work. Fortunately for many people doing this the Canadian software company CuteSoft has an elegant and fast solution - the PHP File Uploader web script.
PHP File Uploader is exactly what it says it is – a file uploading script that simplifies working with files that must be uploaded on the Internet. Designed to work with web servers of all kinds this convenient file uploading software offers features that can greatly ease your work such as the ability to select and upload multiple files at once instead of one by one, cancel running uploads and add new files during the upload process. In addition the php upload script itself is rather flexible which allows you to customize it in numerous ways so that it fits seamlessly into your website design.
All this is nice for sure but the people at CuteSoft Components have gone one step further! The PHP file upload script has a client side validation of the file size and the type of the file before you upload it, which saves you the hassle of uploading the wrong files and then deleting them, increases overall usability and reduces unnecessary usage of network and server resources. Another great feature is asynchronous file upload, which uploads the file in the background. This means you can still see the web page while the file gets uploaded. Furthermore PHP File Uploader offers a real time progress bar that keeps track of file uploads, shows you the progress and speed of the file upload and allows the end user to cancel file uploads in progress. Finally, this flexible and useful software allows you to upload files with no need to refresh the page!
The best way to experience software features is to actually use them and this is why CuteSoft Components has included several live samples of PHP File Uploader features as well as a downloadable demo version of the script. Moreover, the folks at CuteSoft Components have added multiple screenshots of the file uploading software in action just in case you do not want to use the demo version or play with the live samples.
CuteSoft Components also does a great job in the support department! The website of PHP File Uploader offers a broad FAQ section with answers to the most common questions. In case yours is not one of them then you can turn to the included PHP File Uploader developer's guide - an extensive manual of the software script that can answer nearly every question. Finally you can contact CuteSoft Components online or visit their office in case you are in Canada, but phone support is simply not there so don't rely on it. Instead, the Canadian software company offers live chat and while this is a nice option, phone support is better as it provides speedier help in case you bump into a strange problem.
