    when trying to run this code..

       // Configuration - Your Options
          $allowed_filetypes = array('.jpg','.gif','.bmp','.png'); // These will be the types of file that will pass the validation.
          $max_filesize = 524288; // Maximum filesize in BYTES (currently 0.5MB).
          $upload_path = 'c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bc\files'; // The place the files will be uploaded to (currently a 'files' directory).
       $filename = $_FILES['userfile']['name']; // Get the name of the file (including file extension).
       $ext = substr($filename, strpos($filename,'.'), strlen($filename)-1); // Get the extension from the filename.
       // Check if the filetype is allowed, if not DIE and inform the user.
          die('The file you attempted to upload is not allowed.');
       // Now check the filesize, if it is too large then DIE and inform the user.
       if(filesize($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']) > $max_filesize)
          die('The file you attempted to upload is too large.');
       // Check if we can upload to the specified path, if not DIE and inform the user.
          die('You cannot upload to the specified directory, please CHMOD it to 777.');
       // Upload the file to your specified path.
       if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'],$upload_path . $filename))
             echo 'Your file upload was successful, view the file <a href="' . $upload_path . $filename . '" title="Your File">here</a>'; // It worked.
             echo 'There was an error during the file upload.  Please try again.'; // It failed :(.
    Code (markup):
    i get this error

    PHP Warning: Unknown: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(C:\Windows\TEMP\) is not within the allowed path(s): (c:\inetpub\) in Unknown on line 0

    PHP Warning: File upload error - unable to create a temporary file in Unknown on line 0

    strange as in my php.ini file this is set..


    why do i get this error and why cant i perform uploads?

    The behaviour is correct. You haven't done anything to change the location of the Temp file for the upload. The assignment for $upload_path is for moving the file after upload. You can test it by adding

    open_basedir = "C:\Windows\TEMP\;c:\inetpub"
