I made several scripts and also used some built scripts that use the PHP uloading feature to both file and dbase(mysql) storage, BUT one way or another I encounter some problems. 8 out of 10 times my browser seems to hang and in 50% of the cases nothing is stored while sometimes the file is stored but the browser just hangs.

Am I the only one who has these problems or is it a known problem and even more important is there an other way to upload then the 'regular' way: copy($userfile,"/home/path/www/".$userfile_name);

I would love to know, please tell me!
