php/upload.php

<?php
  $file_name =  $_FILES['file']['name']; //getting file name
  $tmp_name = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name']; //getting temp_name of file
  $file_up_name = time().$file_name; //making file name dynamic by adding time before file name
  move_uploaded_file($tmp_name, "files/".$file_up_name); //moving file to the specified folder with dynamic name
?>

Create a Folder for Uploaded Files

Now you need to create a folder called files inside the php folder. Basically, this folder will hold all the uploaded files.
