How can I inspect the contents of a file, that I upload over wifi from my local computer to a website? So far when I upload, I see that some packets are generated in wire shark, but after inspecting them it seems like they don't contain any data matching what was in the file encrypted or otherwise?

Depending on the type of traffic you are looking at you may need to setup parameters to decrypt the communications in order to get back at the original contents of the file, just as the web server has to do.
