You have to do it in two steps: first you have to copy the file using copy function , then you have to delete the source file using unlink function:
$source = "path_to_file/image.jpg";
$dest = "new_path_to_file/image.jpg";
copy($source, $dest);
unlink($source);

Open in new window

Please, be sure the new destination directory exist and be sure to have write permission on it.

Cheers

Hi,

This code will move file to another folder in php:

if(isset($_POST['next_page'])) {
  if (!is_dir('../images/uploads/listers/'.$_SESSION['loggedin_lister_id'])) {
    mkdir('../images/uploads/listers/'.$_SESSION['loggedin_lister_id']);
  }

  foreach($_SESSION['uploaded_photos'] as $key => $value) {
    $target_path = '../images/uploads/listers/'.$_SESSION['loggedin_lister_id'].'/';
    $target_path = $target_path . basename($value);

    if(rename($value, $target_path)) {
      echo "The file ".  basename($value). " has been uploaded<br />";
    } else{
      echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
    }

  } //end foreach

}
