Can’t get php to run on Amazon Lightsail

  apache2, forms, html, php

I’m trying to run a very file file upload thing on an amazon lightsail machine running apache that I own. For some reason when I click submit the next page displays the html but I get an error saying method wasn’t post and to use enctype. I added this to my form page and nothing changed unfortunately.


<form action="submission.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<label for="pdf">Upload your pdf</label>
<input type="file" id="pdf" name="pdf" accept=".pdf"></br></br>
<label for="pics"> Optional extra credit </label>
<input type="file" id="pics" name="pics" accept="image/*"></br></br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">

I then use something like $_POST["pdf"] to retrieve the information

please help

EDIT: while writing this post my lightsail instance stopped working so i can’t get the exact code
