Upload Class

All files in Midrub all uploaded through the core's class Upload. The class Upload is located in the folder application/base/classes/media and i recommend to use it to upload the files because it supports hooks and will be always improved for the best performance.

Add the namespace in your file's header:

// Define the namespaces to use

use MidrubBase\Classes\Media as MidrubBaseClassesMedia;

Then use this:

// Prepare the file

$file_args = array(

    'cover' => 'url for cover',

    'category' => 'optionally contains the media category'

    'allowed_extensions' => 'array with supported extensions' 


// Send

(new MidrubBaseClassesMedia\Upload())->upload($file_args)

allowed_extensions supports an array with this format array('image/png', 'image/jpeg', 'image/gif', 'video/mp4', 'video/webm', 'video/avi').

This is important for two reasons:

  • type/format allows to verify if the uploaded file has approved format.
  • type is saved in the database.
