PHP move_uploaded_file fail to upload file

I have the below PHP code to upload files

           $uploadedFile = ''; 
            if(!empty($_FILES["file"]["name"])){ 
                // File path config 
                $fileName = $_FILES["file"]["name"]; 
                $targetFilePath = 'uploads/'.$fileName; 
                $fileType = pathinfo($targetFilePath, PATHINFO_EXTENSION); 
                 
                // Allow certain file formats to upload 
                if(in_array($fileType, $allowTypes)){ 
                    // Upload file to the server 
                    
                    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"], $targetFilePath)){ 
                        $uploadedFile = $fileName; 
                        $uploadStatus = 1;
                    }else{ 
                        $uploadStatus = 0; 
                        $response['message'] = 'Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.'; 
                    } 
                }else{ 
                    $uploadStatus = 0; 
                    $response['message'] = 'Sorry, only '.implode('/', $allowTypes).' files are allowed to upload.'; 
                } 
            } 
             
            if($uploadStatus == 1){ 
                 
                // Insert form data in the database 
                $sqlInsertFilePath = "insert into soundexercises(filepath) values ('$targetFilePath')";
                $resultFilePath = pg_query($cn, $sqlInsertFilePath);

                if($resultFilePath){ 
                    $response['status'] = 1; 
                    $response['message'] = 'Form data submitted successfully!'; 
                } 
            } 
        }else{ 
         $response['message'] = 'Please fill all the mandatory fields.'; 

I get error

Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.

I check the error.log from my apache and I get the below

I checked the permission on the upload folder and it's 755 with correct owner.

===UPDATE=== The $_FILES['file']['error'] return 0 .

1:0 {"status":0,"message":"Sorry, there was an error uploading your file.","results":"No results"}

Answers(1) :

What happens when You provide full absolute path for the $targetFilePath instead of 'uploads/'.$fileName ?

There's also comodo security Modsecurity warning error in Your logs.

It worked with absolute path.

I know. Error log already told everything.
