How can i count files in a folder but only the files starting with 15_ before the file name?

Member Avatar for diafol

have your looked at the directory and file functions in the php manual?

Here's the code.

$dir    = 'C:\';
$files = scandir($dir);
for ($i=0;$i<count($files);$i++){
	if (substr($files[$i],0,3)=="15_"){
echo $j;

This pulls all the files in the specified directory to an array and checks the array to see the stings starting with the required character i.e., "15_" and counts them.

Please encourage the OP to have a go himself/herself. Just posting a solution won't help them in the long run.

I would say though, perhaps I'm old fashioned, but numbers at the start of file names?
