folder/file permissions

Hey Ray

Just wondering if IR sets a permission level 644 on image files when it creates a folder in the image_cache root folder?

Reason I ask is that I have a script that runs through a cron to delete files and folders in the image_cache folder and is failing if there is a folder /fit/ in the sub folders (if its /crop/ or other it seems to work fine)

this is the error when I run the cron:

couldn't delete /home/sites/6a/2/2864597a2d/public_html/images/image_cache/images/products/fit<br />
PHP Warning: rmdir(/home/sites/6a/2/2864597a2d/public_html/images/image_cache/images/products/fit): Directory not empty in /home/sites/6a/2/2864597a2d/public_html/delete.php on line 14



and this is the script am running

<?php


define('PATH', '/home/sites/6a/2/2864597a2d/public_html/images/image_cache/');

function destroy($dir) {
$mydir = opendir($dir);
while(false !== ($file = readdir($mydir))) {
if($file != "." && $file != "..") {
chmod($dir.$file, 0777);
if(is_dir($dir.$file)) {
chdir('.');
destroy($dir.$file.'/');
rmdir($dir.$file) or DIE("couldn't delete $dir$file<br />");
}
else
unlink($dir.$file) or DIE("couldn't delete $dir$file<br />");
}
}
closedir($mydir);
}
destroy(PATH);
echo 'all done.';


?>



Thanks

Jamie

All of the permissions should be the same for created directories in all folders. The default directory permissions are on the top of the include file where the function that creates the directory is found. It might just be that the image was corrupted or being accessed at the time the script was running, or even was re-created while the script was running.

gotcha but the problem is its multiple 'fit' folders.

The delete script kept running but stopping that there was over 100mb in the image_cache folder which I could only delete by logging in to the hosting package as trying to do it via FTP it kept being stopped (using DW FTP as well as Filezilla)

I'm not sure what would cause that. If it happens again I can try to analyze it with ftp access and a url to reproduce.

Your delete.php file had some invalid function calls. I've updated it and it seems to work.

I think the Dreamweaver delete is just too slow and the site is in use. By the time it finishes deleting all of the images in a directory, that directory is no longer empty. Then it tries to delete the directory and it can't because it isn't empty.
