Create a directory with blank index file in it using php

Hi,
I have an app I'm working on that needs to create a directory if it doesn't already exist AND put a blank index.html file into it to keep from allowing the directory contents to be browsed.

My code for the directory is below and works fine. Can it be combined to incorporate writing the index file into it as well? Or is there a better way?

 
if (file_exists($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/app/application/modules/account/recordings/$account_id")){
	null;
} else {
	mkdir("../recordings/$account_id", 0755);
}

Open in new window

[b]file_put_contents("../recordings/$account_id/'index.html", 'hello');[/b]
}

Open in new window


or put a htaccess file in the recordings dir

filename .htaccess
contents in side file Options -Indexes
