View Full Version : Can't Find File to Copy

04-03-2003, 04:40 AM
I am new to the copy() command and need a hand.

I have a line of code like this:

<? copy('../movies/movieTemplate.php','../movies/$filename'); ?>

I get an error back like:

Unable to open '../movies/movieTemplate.php' for reading: No such file or directory

I thought that perhpas php (or atleast the copy command) does not recognise the ../ to move it back a directory, if so what do I use :confused:
