I will always be a newbie.

I am including code here to save me from pain.


This will probably get its own page at some point:

<?php

function deldir($dir){
 $current_dir = opendir($dir);
 while($entryname = readdir($current_dir)){
    if(is_dir("$dir/$entryname") and ($entryname != "." and $entryname!="..")){
      deldir("${dir}/${entryname}");
    }elseif($entryname != "." and $entryname!=".."){
      unlink("${dir}/${entryname}");
    }
 }
 closedir($current_dir);
 rmdir(${dir});
}

clearstatcache();
$dir='/home/tiki/templates_c/';
if (is_dir($dir))
        {deldir($dir);}
else {print "$dir is not a dir!";}

print is_dir($dir);

?>


Call it deldir.php, set the right perms, and call it from your browser. This will completly remove the directory; prob needs mods to just clear it.
