$target_file = $path . basename($_FILES["Upload"]["name"]);

$uploadOk = 1;

    if (empty($_FILES["Upload"]["name"] ))
    echo "Sorry,no file select.";
    $uploadOk = 0;
    echo nl2br("\n");
    echo "<a href ='index.php'>".'Home Page'."</a>" ;
$FileType   = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
// Check if  file is a actual FILE 
    $check = getimagesize($_FILES["Upload"]["tmp_name"]);

        //echo "Audio File  - " . $check["mime"] . ".";
        $uploadOk = 1;
    else {
        echo "File is other formate.";
        $uploadOk = 0;

// Check if file already exists
if (file_exists($target_file)) {

    echo "Sorry, your file was not uploaded.";
// if everything is ok, try to upload file
} else {
    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['Upload']['tmp_name'], $path . $_FILES['Upload']['name'] ))
