Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: PHP Copy

  1. #1

    PHP Copy

    I've created a file collection script via an xml feed which worked fine until now. The script gets info from an xml file and copies the relevant files to my server using php copy.

    Now I have a new client who has brackets and foreign characters in the filenames which are causing the file copy to fail:
    1st example:
    http://www.domainname.com/photo/MAVA...I-5/Castellano Marceliano (13).JPG

    2nd example:
    www.domainname.com/photo/MAVA1396-AP-1/Juan Jos頃aba񥲯 (5).jpg

    Is there any way i can encode these urls so i can copy the files? I know the files exist because the can be seen in a browser, but copying them fails more often than the England football team.

    I've tried urlencode and this throws the same problem. Any help please?

    No matter, I worked it out about 5 mins after posting - the problem wasn't with the brackets - it was with the spaces. The urlencode was re-encoding the whole url and upsetting everything, but by doing a string replace for the spaces the problem was solved.
