This package can save an uploaded file with a unique name.

It provides a function that takes an entry from the $_FILES array with the details of a file uploaded to the Web server using the current PHP script.

The script processes the file by storing it in a given destination directory.

It changes the uploaded file with a name and a number that can be increased if another file already exists with the same file name.
