RecursiveIteratorIterator does not work - php5-fpm


I am trying to use RecursiveIteratorIterator with RecursiveDirectoryIterator to return an array of recursive files and folders.

This used to work on a Apache2 + php5 setup but I recently moved over to nginx and php5-fpm.

Everything on my site works perfectly except this particular function.

I do a var_dump on the variable those 2 functions are set on and it returns:

object(RecursiveIteratorIterator)#218 (0) { }

I dunno what’s wrong or if I’m missing a particular php5 package that’s suppose to be installed.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi! RecursiveIteratorIterator is part of the base php5 package so it should be there by default. Are you getting any errors? Check nginx’s error log:

sudo tail /var/log/nginx/error.log
