i have a snippet of code that i need some help with.  i want to copy folder A "core" and all its contents to folder B "<customer_name>".

so far my functions just copy files.  it doesnt copy any subfolder files.

/public_html/xxx/cms/core/  <----------------- folder A is core.  core contains 3 txt files and a sub folder called "includes" with 4 txt files .

/<customer_name>/public/xxx/  <-------------------- folder B is <customer_name> - the param i pass into my SetupCustomer function.

basically im copying everything inside core to a folder outside the public_html

see code below:
function CopyCoreFiles($current_directory,$template_directory,$customer_directory)

{

	$dots = array('.', '..');

	$files = array_diff(scandir($template_directory), $dots);

			

	foreach($files as $file) 

	{

		chdir($template_directory);
 

		$myfile = file_get_contents($file);

		

		chdir($current_directory);	

		

		chdir($customer_directory);

		

		file_put_contents($file,$myfile);	

		

		chdir($current_directory);

	}

		

	$files = array_diff(scandir($customer_directory), $dots);

		

	if(count($files) > 0)

	{

		unset($files,$file,$dots,$myfile,$customer_directory,$template_directory,$current_directory);

			

		return 1;

	}

	else

	{

		unset($files,$file,$dots,$myfile,$customer_directory,$template_directory,$current_directory);

			

		return 0;

	}

}
 

function SetupCustomer($customer_name)

{

	$current_directory = '';

		

	if(is_dir($customer_name))

	{			

		$this->DeleteFolderAndFiles($customer_name.'/');

	

		rmdir($customer_name);

	}	

		

	mkdir($customer_name);

		

	$current_directory = getcwd();

		

	if($this->CopyCoreFiles($current_directory,'cms/core/',$customer_name) == 1)

	{	

		unset($current_directory,$customer_name,$handle,$file,$current_directory);

			

		return true;

	}

	else

	{

		unset($current_directory,$customer_name,$handle,$file,$current_directory);

			

		return false;

	}

}
 

SetupCustomer('pegasus');

you need to extend your function to include "includes" folder like this:
function CopyCoreFiles($current_directory,$template_directory,$customer_directory)

{

        $dots = array('.', '..');

        $files = array_diff(scandir($template_directory), $dots);

                        

        foreach($files as $file) 

        {

                chdir($template_directory);

                $myfile = file_get_contents($file);

                chdir($current_directory);      

                chdir($customer_directory);

                file_put_contents($file,$myfile);       

                chdir($current_directory);

        }
 

        mkdir($customer_directory."/includes");
 

        $dots = array('.', '..');

        $files = array_diff(scandir($template_directory."/includes"), $dots);

                        

        foreach($files as $file) 

        {

                chdir($template_directory);

                $myfile = file_get_contents($file);

                chdir($current_directory);      

                chdir($customer_directory."/includes");

                file_put_contents($file,$myfile);       

                chdir($current_directory);

        }
 

                

        $files = array_diff(scandir($customer_directory), $dots);

                

        if(count($files) > 0)

        {

                unset($files,$file,$dots,$myfile,$customer_directory,$template_directory,$current_directory);

                        

                return 1;

        }

        else

        {

                unset($files,$file,$dots,$myfile,$customer_directory,$template_directory,$current_directory);

                        

                return 0;

        }

Hi

Looking at your code without testing it yet, will it copy all files inside core and its sub folder includes?

yes, it will. but you should do additional checks to be 100% sure, as i don't do any checkings ( if includes folder exists etc..)
