Net_FTP::mkdir() – creates a new directory.


require_once 'Net/FTP.php';

mixed Net_FTP::mkdir ( string $directory , bool $recursive = false )


Creates a new directory on the FTP server. You can give this function either a relative or an absolute path as the first parameter. The second (optional) parameter lets you create directories recursively (meaning you can create './my/new/dir' even if '/my' doesn't exist. All 3 directories would be created ).


  • string $directory - The directory you want to create. This can either be an absolute path (e.g. '/home/mydir') or a relative one (e.g. 'mydir').

Return value

mixed - true on success, otherwise PEAR::Error.


The returned PEAR_Error object in case of an error is specific. There is only one errornumber which may occur. The message given by this error will contain the directory where the error occurred in "Creation of '$dir' failed". operation fails.


This function can not be called statically.
