I want copy all the files of a folder to another folder. So how to copy recursively in wordpress.
You can make use of the
Filesystem API, especially the
copy_dir() function - source - does seem to be what you are looking for. Take a look at the docblock from the above source link for a little bit more information:
/** * Copies a directory from one location to another via the WordPress Filesystem Abstraction. * Assumes that WP_Filesystem() has already been called and setup. * * @since 2.5.0 * * @param string $from source directory * @param string $to destination directory * @param array $skip_list a list of files/folders to skip copying * @return mixed WP_Error on failure, True on success. */
The (very) basic usage scenario would look like this:
global $wp_filesystem; copy_dir( '/path/you/are/copying/from/', '/path/you/are/copying/to/' );
Filesystem API isn't exactly well documented. You definitely should take a look at the linked codex article. One additional (almost always) linked source of information would be the article by @Otto:
Besides that there are some Q&A's on here which might be helpful:
- Using wp_filesystem in Plugins
- Use WP_Filesystem to list files in directory
- Copy and delete a directory with WordPress functions
Note, the above are just a small sample, use the search to find more. Last but not least, to take a closer look at the source to learn and know more about it should definitely be on your agenda.
