Hi All - hope someone has done this before. I need to create a PHP script that detects the presence of a new file appearing into a folder, and process it. This HAS to be supported by Windows IIS (Have looked at FAM for Linux but can't use it). I could do a loop with some sleep that checks the directory every x seconds - but this has been discounted by the client as either a) too resource hungry or b) not quick enough if there is a delay. Add ons, extensions or even external 3rd party tools would all be acceptable. Any ideas? Phil
I've got a dev server which, for reasons I won't go into, needs to have different .htaccess files for each site (and subfolders within them) within it. But not always. What I need to do is: - For the folder I put the PHP script in, and every folder under it (the whole tree under it): - If there's a .htaccess file an no .htaccess.dev file, copy .htaccess and name the copy .htaccess.dev (and look in subfolders) If there's a .htaccess file and also a .htaccess.dev file, do nothing (but keep looking for subfolders) If there's neither a .htaccess or .htaccess.dev file, do nothing (but keep looking for subfolders) I'd try to come up with something myself, but getting it wrong will be fairly catastrophic! I'm sure the conditional copy / rename bit is relatively straightforward, but it's the recursive searching of the whole file-system under the script's location that I'm not sure about... Any help greatly appreciated, as always! I have SSH access, if it's easier done that way maybe I'm approaching it wrong?
