Syntax
<Result> = FTPRenameFile(<Connection Identifier> , <File/Directory to Rename> , <New Name of File/Directory>)
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the file was renamed,
  • False otherwise. To find out the error details, use ErrorInfo associated with the errMessage constant.
<Connection Identifier>: Integer
Connection identifier, returned by FTPConnect.
PHP The connection identifier is a variant type.
<File/Directory to Rename>: Character string (with quotes)
Name and full (or relative) path of file or directory to rename. The different path sections are separated by "slashes" ("/").
<New Name of File/Directory>: Character string (with quotes)
Name and full (or relative) path of file or directory. The different path sections are separated by "slashes" ("/"). If the path specified by this parameter differs from the initial path, the file to rename is moved.
Remarks

Time-out

By default, all the FTP functions fail if the FTP server does not respond within 20 seconds. This time-out can be modified by FTPConnect when connecting to the FTP server.

Internet browser

FTPRenameFile requires Internet Explorer version 3 or later.
If a problem occurs, we recommend that you run a test with the browser by directly passing a link such as ftp://server/... If a problem occurs with Internet Explorer (with a UNIX server for example), use FTPCommand directly.

Rights of users

Only a user who has write rights on the FTP server can handle the files found on an FTP server. In most cases, no write rights are granted to the "anonymous" users.

Relative and absolute path

The notions of relative path and absolute path are very important in an FTP application.
  • A path starting with a slash is considered as being an absolute path: it is the path in relation to the root of the FTP server (parameter specific to the server).
    ex: /ad/user/JULIA
  • A path not starting with a slash is considered as being a relative path, which means a path given in relation to the current directory. This current directory can be returned or modified by FTPCurrentDir.
When connecting to an FTP site, the initial directory (the "home directory" of the user) is not necessarily found at the root of the FTP server. Therefore, we recommend that you use relative paths.
