Create folder after insert

Thread began 7/19/2012 10:00 am by ddileo415479 | Last modified 7/23/2012 8:36 am by Jason Byrnes | 1098 views | 3 replies |


Create folder after insert

I would like to create a folder on the server after an insert record into mysql database. I found the following code in the forum, but have a few questions:

<?php if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
mkdir("/Galleries/Users/".$_SESSION['userid']."", 0700);} ?>

I'd like to set it to two variables:

/Galleries/Users/ ProfileID [session variable]/ Title [form variable]

So it would check to see if profileid exists; if not it would create folder.
Then it would within that folder create one for a form variable Title.

Any thoughts?

you would need to use file_exists() to check if the directory is created, if not crete is using mkdir.

you would need 2 statement the first to check the session directory, then to check the post directory name.

see this thread on webmaster world for details on how to do this:

Insertion Point

If I simply use two variables, without the check:

<?php if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
mkdir("/Galleries/Users/".$_SESSION['userid'].""/".$_GET['Title']."", 0700);} ?>

Not sure where I would insert this code so it functions only on the insert by data assist. Also not sure if I called the second variable correctly.

the code can go at line 1.

in the code you provide, $_GET['Title'] should be $_POST['Title']

The reality is that this is custom code that we do not offer support for. if you need assistance in adding this, please sign up for a premiere support appointment.
