rmdir

(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)

rmdir -- Removes directory

Description

bool rmdir ( string dirname [, resource context] )

Attempts to remove the directory named by dirname. The directory must be empty, and the relevant permissions must permit this. Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Note: As of PHP 5.0.0 rmdir() can also be used with some URL wrappers. Refer to Appendix N for a listing of which wrappers support rmdir().

Note: Context support was added with PHP 5.0.0. For a description of contexts, refer to Reference CLX, Stream Functions.

Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the directory in which you are about to operate has the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed.
