copy -- Copies file


bool copy ( string source, string dest)

Makes a copy of the file source to dest. Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Example 1. copy() example

if (!copy($file, $file.'.bak')) {
"failed to copy $file...<br />\n";

Note: As of PHP 4.3.0, both source and dest may be URLs if the "fopen wrappers" have been enabled. See fopen() for more details. If dest is a URL, the copy operation may fail if the wrapper does not support overwriting of existing files.


If the destination file already exists, it will be overwritten.

See also move_uploaded_file(), rename(), and the section of the manual about handling file uploads.
