Is it a good idea to overwrite Super Global Variables ??
#1

In my opinion, we should discourage, happy to understand what best practice should be ?

Example, where $_FILES is overwritten as

 
PHP Code:
$filesCount count($_FILES['files']['name']);
 
       for($i 0$i $filesCount$i++){
 
           $_FILES['file']['name'    $_FILES['files']['name'][$i];
 
           $_FILES['file']['type'    $_FILES['files']['type'][$i];
 
           $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'] = $_FILES['files']['tmp_name'][$i];
 
           $_FILES['file']['error'    $_FILES['files']['error'][$i];
 
           $_FILES['file']['size'    $_FILES['files']['size'][$i];

 
           // File upload configuration
 
           $uploadPath 'uploads/files/';
 
           $config['upload_path'] = $uploadPath;
 
           $config['allowed_types'] = 'jpg|jpeg|png|gif';

 
           // Load and initialize upload library
 
           $this->load->library('upload'$config);
 
           $this->upload->initialize($config);

 
           // Upload file to server
 
           if($this->upload->do_upload('file')){
 
               // Uploaded file data
 
               $fileData $this->upload->data();
 
               $uploadData[$i]['file_name'] = $fileData['file_name'];
 
               $uploadData[$i]['uploaded_on'] = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");
 
           }
 
       

This is commonly used code to upload multiple files .. 
If this is bad approach.. please share working code for multiple file upload without modify super globals.

There must be a lot of github projects with codeigniter and multiple file uploads.

Personally, I've never needed a multiple file upload.

$upload_dir ='upload/';
    if(isset($_FILES["sticker_image"]["name"]) && $_FILES["sticker_image"]["name"]!="")
{
$config['upload_path'] = $upload_dir; 
$config['allowed_types'] = 'png'; 
$file = time().'_'.str_replace(' ','_',$_FILES["sticker_image"]['name']);
$insert["sticker_image"] = $file;
$config['file_name'] = $file;
$this->load->library('upload', $config);
$this->upload->initialize($config);
$this->upload->do_upload('sticker_image');
}


Try this code.
