8 Years ago PHP(Functions) 0(Disable)

If you want to delete everything from folder (including subfolders) use this function.

function removeDir( $dir )
{
   if ( is_dir( $dir ) ) {
      $objects = scandir( $dir );
      foreach ( $objects as $object ) {
         if ( $object != "." && $object != ".." ) {
            if ( filetype( $dir . "/" . $object ) == "dir" ) {
               rrmdir( $dir . "/" . $object );
            }
            else {
               unlink( $dir . "/" . $object );
            }
         }
      }
 
      reset( $objects );
      rmdir( $dir );
   }
 
   return true;
}
 
removeDir( '/foo/' );
