upload photo with the name {1E0557DF-2797-4E31-9908-81722ABCED19}0.jpg
It won't work, rename it to 
It works.

Here is the code I used:

$uploadFileWithoutPath = "photos".basename($_FILES['PhotoUpload']['name']);

$uploadFileWithoutPath = urlencode($uploadFileWithoutPath);

$uploaddir = $PhotoDir;
$uploadfile = $uploaddir . $uploadFileWithoutPath;
$uploadfile = sprintf($uploadfile,time());

$requestValid = true;
$fileSize = $_FILES['PhotoUpload']['size'];

if($fileSize > 1000000)
   $requestValid = false;

if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['PhotoUpload']['tmp_name'], $uploadfile)) {

  //do my stuff here.......

Reproduce code:

Click a location, and click "add marker" link, try to upload a photo with the name {1E0557DF-2797-4E31-9908-81722ABCED19}0.jpg

It won't upload the photo, now rename it to 
It works.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
