Change the read/write mode of a file or directory, consistent with ProcessWire's configuration settings
This method also provides the option of going recursive, adjusting the read/write mode for an entire file/directory tree at once.
$chmod arguments may be optionally swapped in order (since 3.0.34).
// Update the mode of /site/assets/cache/foo-bar/ recursively $files->chmod($config->paths->cache . 'foo-bar/', true);
// basic usage $bool = $files->chmod(string $path); // usage with all arguments $bool = $files->chmod(string $path, $recursive = false, $chmod = null);
Path or file that you want to adjust mode for (may be a path/directory or a filename).
If set to true, all files and directories in $path will be recursively set as well (default=false).
|string, null, bool|
If you want to set the mode to something other than ProcessWire's chmodFile/chmodDir settings, you may override it by specifying it here. Ignored otherwise. Format should be a string, like "0755".
Returns true if all changes were successful, or false if at least one chmod failed.
Method can throw exceptions on error:
WireException- when it receives incorrect chmod format
