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: Marceliano (13).JPG

    2nd example: 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.
