I am new to PHP and need help with my code to create files and folders based on variable values. Here's the setup:
1. I have approximately 100 categories. I've assigned a variable to each category. E.g.
- Variable 1 (as in $c1) contains category one's name.
- Variable 2 (as in $c2) contains category two's name.
- Variable 3 (as in $c3) contains category three's name.
- Etc. for all 70 variables / categories.
2. My script needs to create a folder for each category and then add a content file into each category folder.
Here's my code so far:
<?php include '0vars.php'; ?> // The file containing the list of variables. <?php $mypath="$c1"; // Set the path to create the first folder using variable $c1 for the folder name. mkdir($mypath,0755,TRUE); // Create the folder / directory chdir($mypath); // Change Directory to enter the folder just created $filename = 'index.php'; // Name the file to be created $handle = fopen($filename,"x+"); // Not sure what this does?? $somecontent = "include"../content/c1.php"; // This has got me!!! Content must be an include from the content folder. fwrite($handle,$somecontent); // Closing of the script - last 3 lines. echo "Success"; fclose($handle); chdir('../'); // Go back up one directory level //----------------------------- // Now repeat the process for all +- 100 categories. $mypath="$c2"; mkdir($mypath,0755,TRUE); chdir($mypath); $filename = 'index.php'; $handle = fopen($filename,"x+"); $somecontent = "xxxxxxxxxxxx"; fwrite($handle,$somecontent); echo "Success"; fclose($handle); chdir('../'); //----------------------------- Etc. ?>
The code works except for the line:
$somecontent = "include"../content/c1.php";
which I clearly don't know how to format.
The included file name 'c1.php' must match the variable name '$c1.'
Likewise, the created folder must match the variable name '$c1.'
The resulting structure would be
Category1 (The first directory)
index.php with c1.php included
Category2 (The second directory)
index.php with c2.php included
Repeating the above code 100 times for each category / folder would be tedious, but I am not sure how to loop it.
Thank you. I hope the above makes sense.
