file upload class - problem with file_name config item

Hi there,

Not sure if this is a bug or a misunderstanding on my part but when initialising the upload class with the file_name config item, the uploaded file is not renamed to what I feed it (it keeps the original file name).

Here's my upload function (within a controller):

function _upload()
        $config['allowed_types'] = 'jpg|jpeg|gif|png';
        $config['upload_path'] = './uploads/';
        $config['file_name'] = 'name_of_file';
        $config['overwrite'] = FALSE;

        $this->load->library('upload', $config);
        if( ! $this->upload->do_upload('files'))

        // all ok, return file upload data
        $file_data = $this->upload->data();
        return $file_data;

Any clue on what I could be doing wrong?

Try to remove $config['overwrite'] = FALSE; and see if you have same problem.

yup, same problem Sad

On a sidenote, the reason why I'm using $config['overwrite'] = FALSE is because this will become a multiple file upload (once I get it working on a single file) and this directive increments the file names. Just thought I should make a precision on that Smile

See the code below(i use it for uploading one image) hope it will help you.

        $img_name = url_title($category_name).'_'.random_string('alnum', 5);

        $filename = $_FILES['userfile']['name'];
        $ext = substr($filename, strrpos($filename, '.') + 1);

        $gallery_path = realpath(APPPATH . '../uploads');

        $config['upload_path'] = $gallery_path . '/categories';
        $config['allowed_types'] = 'gif|jpg|jpeg|png';
        $config['max_size'] = '2000';
        $config['file_name'] = $img_name;

        $this->load->library('upload', $config);
        if( ! $this->upload->do_upload())
            $this->session->set_flashdata('error', $this->upload->display_errors());
            redirect('admin/add_category', 'refresh');
        $image_data = $this->upload->data();

Make sure it is a filename without the fileextension!

Thanks vaxis, had to rush out so didn't have time to try your code... will do that asap and come back to post the results.

Tried your script vaxis and still no renaming... arghhh!
Could be me but I believe there's a bug with the file_name config item.

I guess I'll just have to correctly name my files before uploading them as I don't have too much time to spend on working out the issue. Since it's for a personnal project that only I will use it's not too important. It would be if it where for a client project though, so eventually I will have to get around to finding out what is going on.

Thanks for your help anyway Smile

i've got the same darned infuriating problem - did you get to the bottom of it Berik??

Here is a guess... but try setting write over to TRUE... perhaps to rename a file... you must write over the original?
