How do you duplicate a file and rename a folder in your space using PHP?

I’m trying to duplicate files and rename a folder using PHP, but it refuses to work for some reason. I’m using thephpleague’s filesystem API to do this which worked perfectly for uploading, deleting and creating directories, but it doesn’t work for copying and renaming.

How can I do this task? If I can’t, I’m afraid I’ll have to use another platform for file storage.

Hi there @shareonwebsite,

Can you share the exact PHP code that you are trying to use for the renaming? I would like to test this at my end as well in order to be able to give you some more guidance.

Regards, Bobby
