mkdir in CakePHP

Hi guys,

I'm having trouble with a simple mkdir function in CakePHP.

Code attached.

Basically all I'm trying to do is check to see if the dynamic cached dir exists in my /webroot/files/ directory and if not create it using mkdir.

The variable $relpath resolves to:

So it should check using is_dir to see if this dir exists (it doesn't right now) and if not it should create it.

I'm getting the following error:
Warning (2): mkdir() [function.mkdir]: No such file or directory [APP/views/helpers/image.php, line 33]

Any help appreciated..

function resize($path, $width, $height, $aspect = true, $htmlAttributes = array(), $return = false, $urlonly = false) {
      $dir = "{$width}x{$height}";
      $fullpath = WWW_ROOT.'files'.DS;
      $relpath = $fullpath.'cache'.DS.$dir;

Open in new window

You need to make sure that the path '/Users/mickoc/Sites/cake/cakecms/webroot/files/cache' exists before attempting to create the '150x150' directory.
