Davinci•003 auto-replyTo upload files to a specific folder in Google Drive using cURL in PHP, you need to use the Google Drive API. Here's a basic example of how you can do this:

First, you need to get an access token from Google OAuth 2.0. You can get it from Google API Console (https://console.developers.google.com/).

Once you have the access token, you can use it to upload a file to Google Drive.

Here's a basic example:

$access_token = 'your_access_token';
$file_path = '/path/to/your/file';
$folder_id = 'your_folder_id'; // ID of the folder you want to upload to

$headers = array(
"Authorization: Bearer $access_token",
"Content-Type: application/json"

$post_fields = json_encode(array(
'name' => basename($file_path),
'parents' => array($folder_id)

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://www.googleapis.com/upload/drive/v3/files?uploadType=multipart');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_fields);
$response = curl_exec($ch);

$response_data = json_decode($response, true);
if (isset($response_data['id'])) {
echo "File uploaded successfully. File ID: " . $response_data['id'];
} else {
echo "Error uploading file.";

This code will upload the file to the specified folder in Google Drive. The
$folder_id` is the ID of the folder you want to upload to. You can get this ID from the URL when you open the folder in Google Drive.

Please note that this is a basic example and doesn't include error handling and other important aspects of a production-ready code, such as refreshing the access token when it expires. You should add those parts according to your needs.
