Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

    $conn = new mysqli('localhost', 'root', '', 'db_rename');
        die("Error: Failed to connect to database");

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
        <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css" />
    <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
        <div class="container-fluid">
            <a class="navbar-brand" href="">Sourcecodester</a>
    <div class="col-md-3"></div>
    <div class="col-md-6 well">
        <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Simple Change Image Name When Upload</h3>
        <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
        <div class="col-md-3">
            <form method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                <h4>Upload here</h4>
                <input type="file" name="file" required="required"/>
                <br />
                <div class="form-group">
                    <input type="text" class="form-control" name="filename" placeholder="Enter file name" required="required"/>
                <center><button class="btn btn-primary" name="upload"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-upload"></span> Upload</button></center>
        <div class="col-md-3"></div>
        <div class="col-md-6">
            <?php include'rename.php'?>

Creating Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code rename the uploaded image when the button is clicked. To do that just copy and write this block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as rename.php.

    require_once 'conn.php';
        $allowed_ext = array("jpg", "png", "jpeg", "gif");
        $ext = explode(".", $_FILES['file']['name']);
        $end = end($ext);
        if(in_array($end, $allowed_ext)){
            if($_FILES['file']['size'] < 1048576){
                $name = $file_name.".".$end;
                $path = "upload/".$name;
                if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], $path)){
                    $conn->query("INSERT INTO `image` VALUES('', '$name', '$path')");
                echo "<center><img src='$path' width='200' height='200'/></center>";
                echo "File too large to upload";
            echo "Invalid file format";
