Copy Files And Folders From One Directory Into Another

Jul 17, 2005

I have files in

and I would like to copy all of them into

I'd like to copy all of the subdirectories and files that are in

and I would like to be able to use a form of some sort to name the
file I want to copy, and create the folder I'd like to copy it to,
such as newfolder.

How can I use a form to create a new folder on the server?

How can I use a form to name the old folder I want to copy everything
from, then create the name of the new folder I want to copy everything
into, and then copy?

Using Copy Directory Helper In Codeigniter To Copy And Move Files?

I am using this copy directory helper addon for the directory helper to help me copy files to different places on my web server. It works perfectly if the files you are copying from and the folder you are copying to are located within the CodeIgniter install directory. I however have my codeigniter installation in a subdirectory [URL] and would like to be able to move and copy directories in the root directory.

directory_copy('./user_guide/', './test_copy/');

Creates test_copy and copies the contents of user_guide to it.

However doing this (NOTICE the missing DOT( . ) in the destination directory)

directory_copy('./user_guide/', '/test_copy/');

Causes A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning
Message: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied
Filename: helpers/directory_helper.php
Line Number: 91


I have checked all permissions and they seem fine. It seems the script cant execute outside of the CI installation.

Copy Recursive Files And Ignore Folders?

What I want to do is copy all files from within a folder structure to one directory and not copy the folders

- so all files deep within folders appear in one destination folder
- no filenames will be the same, so no need to worry about overwriting
- no folders are needed in the dest, just the files.

I have found the following function for copying files and folders recursively but wondered if I could just comment out a little to get it to do what I want?

function COPY_RECURSIVE_DIRS($dirsource, $dirdest){
mkdir($dirdest."/".$dirsource, 0750);

FTP List Files - Get The Folders/files Within Another Directory?

I am new to the FTP feature of PHP. I have a directory within my FTP location called documents. I need to get the folders/files within another directory. So like this basically:

So how can I show and link to these from PHP. I have tried this:

$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);


But that comes out in array. How can a echo out the name (plus extension) of file and link to them?

Display All Files In All Folders In A Specific Directory?

The ROOT directory is: /root/ The directory that ALL folder's will be located is: /root/folder_names/ I have several subfolders: /root/folder_names/folder 1, /root/folder_names/folder 2, /root/folder_names/folder 3, and so on. I would like it to display all FILE NAMES in folder 1, folder 2, folder 3; but not the folders. How would I do this?

Copy Files To Directory

I don't normally work at the OS file system level when using PHP and have never tried this, but I know it's gotta be possible. What I want to do is write a script that will replace files in one directory with files from another directory when invoked (even if there are already files there). Anybody ever do this? (this is on a Win2k3 Server).

Copy Extracted Files From ZIP To Directory

Anyway, I can't get to copy the files which were extracted from a ZIP to a directory, the files are extracted, but they won't be copied... the files just lay in the root folder where upload.php is. I've got this:

exec('unzip ' . $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], $ary, $output);
$img = 0;
$number = count($ary);
foreach($ary as $file)
copy($file, 'i/');
echo $img . '/' . $number;

It outputs 11/11, so thats good... but the files are not copied and the original files are not deleted. Why isn't it copying them?

Alpha Sort Lines From Several Files In One Directory And Save Them To Files Of "x" Lines Max In Alpha Named Folders

This below goes through files in a directory, reads them and saves them in files of 500 lines max to a new directory. I need a modification. I would like to save to alpha num based files. First, sort the array alpha numerically (already lowercase) would be the first step I assume. Grab all of the lines in each $incoming."/.txt" that start with "a" and put them into a folder at $save500."/a" but, a max of 500 lines each. (I guess it would be best to start with the first at the top of the sort so "0" not "a" right?) All the lines that start with a number, go into $save500."/num". None of the lines will start with anything but a-z0-9. This will allow me to search my files for a match more efficiently using this flatfile method. Narrowing it down to one folder.


Could be the wrong approach above since no responses. But I want a word like aardvark saved to the 1.txt the a/a folder (appending). Unless 1.txt has 500 lines then save it to a/a 2.txt. So xenia would be appended to the x/e folder 1.txt file unless there are 500 lines so create 2.txt and save it there. I will then be able to search for those words more efficiently without loading a ton into memory or looping through files /lines that won't contain a match.
