[PHP/REST] Upload file to a personaccount

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to upload a file in the notes&attachment section of an account, but with no luck. The documentation is very obscure, and I can't even find with the workbench explorer a file that I've uploaded with the salesforce interface.

- What I can't find is where to POST the query :
- what syntax shoud the JSON data have ? Where do I specify the recordId the file should be attached to ?
- how can I retrieve it later ?

does anyone know how to do this ?

To whoever might be interested, the correct way to do it is :

POST to /services/data/v20.0/sobjects/Attachment
Body : 
parentId : the itemID you wish to attach the file to,
name : the filename
description: the description
body : base64encoded of file contents
contenttype: the mimetype of the file
Of all those fields, only the parentId, name and body seem to be displayed in the interface (lightning)
