hello again...

i'm needing to add all contents from one folder to another using php. then delete the source.
source folder holds over 6,000 files..

does anybody have any ideas?

Ive tried the following with no luck..


<?

$directoryToMove = opendir("../folder1/innerFolder/");

// get each entry

while($entryName = readdir($directoryToMove)) {

	rename("sourcePath;", "newPath/");

}
 
 

?>

Open in new window

<?

$sourceDir = "../folder1/innerFolder/";

$targetDir = "../folder2/innerFolder/";
 

if ( $dh = opendir($sourceDir) )

{

    while(false !== ($fileName = readdir($dh)))

    {

        if (!in_array($fileName, array('.','..')))

        {

            rename($sourceDir.$fileName, $targetDir.$fileName);

        }

    }

}

Can you just rename the folder?  Or are you adding files to an existing folder?  What do you want to do about filename collisions?  Keep the oldest or the newest, or overwrite the older with the new?

6,000 files is probably no trouble at all unless these are gigantic files.
