Cannot prevent rmdir warning

Postby pvfpvf » Thu May 30, 2013 2:56 am

If one attempts to rmdir a directory that does not exist, then the script continues running but raises a warning "function.rmdir: No such file or directory in ... on line ..."

I tried to stop this warning using:

Code: Select all

   try   {
      } catch (Exception $e) {/* I dont want to know this*/}

But it still happens. Why?

Workaround is to say:

Code: Select all

      if (is_dir($dir))

check if the directory exists before you try to remove it. for this use file_exists() function of php.
