How do I rename the uploaded files for my module?

2 Answers 2


You might find some information about how to code changing file names in the File (Field) Paths module.

$file = file_save_upload('file' , array(
  'file_validate_is_image' => array(), 
  'file_validate_extensions' => array('png gif jpg jpeg docx')

$file->filename = basename($file->uri);
if ($file) {
  if ($file = file_move($file, 'public://rohit')) {
    $form_state['storage']['file'] = $file;
