I must put a pdf Dokument from Server into Oracle DB

I have found a Dokumentationscript on www.oracle.com.


        // Sample form to upload and insert data into an ORACLE CLOB column 
        // using PHP's Oracle 8 API. 
        // Based on http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.oci-new-descriptor.php 
        // modified to work on CLOBs and use register_globals = Off. 
        // Before running this script, execute these statements in SQL*Plus: 
        //   drop table myclobtab; 
        //   create table myclobtab (c1 number, c2 clob); 
        // Tested with PHP 4.3.3 against Oracle 9.2 

        if (!isset($_FILES['lob_upload'])) { 

        <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data"> 
        Upload file: <input type="file" name="lob_upload"> 
        <input type="submit" value="Upload"> 


        else { 

          $myid = 1; // should really be a unique id e.g. a sequence number 

          $conn = OCILogon('secret', 'secret', 'secret'); 

          // Delete any existing CLOB so the query at the bottom 
          // displays the new data 

          #$query = 'DELETE FROM MYCLOBTAB'; 
          #$stmt = OCIParse ($conn, $query); 
          #OCIExecute($stmt, OCI_COMMIT_ON_SUCCESS); 

          // Insert the CLOB from PHP's temporary upload area 

          $lob = OCINewDescriptor($conn, OCI_D_LOB); 
          $stmt = OCIParse($conn, "INSERT INTO \"tblArchiv\" (\"AR_Objekt\") VALUES(EMPTY_BLOB()) RETURNING \"AR_Objekt\" INTO :C2"); 
          OCIBindByName($stmt, ':C2', $lob, -1, OCI_B_BLOB); 
          OCIExecute($stmt, OCI_DEFAULT); 

          // The function $lob->savefile(...) reads from the uploaded file. 
          // If the data was already in a PHP variable $myv, the 
          // $lob->save($myv) function could be used instead. 
          if ($lob->savefile($_FILES['lob_upload']['tmp_name'])) { 
            echo "CLOB successfully uploaded\n"; 
          else { 
            echo "Could not upload CLOB\n"; 


This code runs good.

But my file is on the server. So i have change the code

This line
if ($lob->savefile($_FILES['lob_upload']['tmp_name'])) {

in this line
if ($lob->savefile("a.pdf")) { 

the code with Fileupload have i delete.

Now the Code generates a new DB Entry but in the Blob field is nothing.

Please help.

Sorry my english is very bad.
