Uploaded file not available for processing?


When I choose the file and submit the form, it goes to the processing page, but apparently doesn't send the file array, just the name of the file.


Accept and upload file to appropriate directory.


  • Local
  • OSX / MAMP Pro
  • PHP / Laravel 4

Upload Controller:

public function uploadLogo() {
    $locals['route'] = route('saveProfileLogo');
    return View::make('upload_file', $locals);

Upload View:

<form method="get" action="{{{$route}}}" enctype="multipart/form-data" class="grid-form">
    <input type="file" name="fresh_file" />

    <input type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" value="Start Upload" />

Save Controller:

public function saveLogo() {
    // Always fails
    // if (!Input::hasFile('fresh_file'))
        // return 'No file provided.';

    // Always shows: array(1) { ["fresh_file"]=> string(21) "Angular Mountains.jpg" }
    // dd(Input::all());

    Input::file('fresh_file')->move(public_path() . '/files');
    return View::make('upload_file_response');


You should use the method="post" in the form, not get, that's why you see the file as a string.
