(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0)

Description

bool posix_access ( string $file [, int $mode = POSIX_F_OK ] )

posix_access() checks the user's permission of a file.

Parameters

file

The name of the file to be tested.

mode

A mask consisting of one or more of POSIX_F_OK, POSIX_R_OK, POSIX_W_OK and POSIX_X_OK.

POSIX_R_OK, POSIX_W_OK and POSIX_X_OK request checking whether the file exists and has read, write and execute permissions, respectively. POSIX_F_OK just requests checking for the existence of the file.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 posix_access() example

This example will check if the $file is readable and writable, otherwise will print an error message.

<?php

$file 
'some_file';

if (
posix_access($filePOSIX_R_OK POSIX_W_OK)) {
    echo 
'The file is readable and writable!';

} else {
    
$error posix_get_last_error();

    echo 
"Error $error: " posix_strerror($error);
}

?>

Notes

Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the files or directories being operated upon have the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed.
