wireChmod() function

Change the mode of a file or directory (optionally recursive)

If no $chmod mode argument is specified the $config->chmodFile or $config->chmodDir` settings will be used.

This is procedural version of the $files->chmod() method.

Usage

// basic usage
$bool = wireChmod(string $path);

// usage with all arguments
$bool = wireChmod(string $path, bool $recursive = false, string $chmod = null);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
pathstring

May be a directory or a filename

recursive (optional)bool

If set to true, all files and directories in $path will be recursively set as well.

chmod (optional)string

If you want to set the mode to something other than PW's chmodFile/chmodDir settings, you may override it by specifying it here. Ignored otherwise. Format should be a string, like "0755".

Return value

bool

Returns true if all changes were successful, or false if at least one chmod failed.

Exceptions

Method can throw exceptions on error:

  • WireException - when it receives incorrect chmod format

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
