Hi guys,

I'm almost done with my script, did quite some testing (generated over 200 files),... and I'm looking at my /tmp dir right now :(
How can I make this lib removing its tmp files after rendering?
Should be default behaviour right?

Tnx so far ;)

require_once('/var/www/Core/0.1/Includes/phpdocx/classes/CreateDocx.inc');
class Tools_Docx extends createDocx{


/**
* Delete all tempfiles.
* MAKE SURE YOU USE A SEPATE DIRECTORY FOR PHPDOCX IN YOUR /TMP DIR!!!!
* This will DELETE all files in the directory you passed in the constructor!!!!
*
*/
public function cleanUp(){
$this->_recurseDelete($this->getTemporaryDirectory());
}

private function _recurseDelete($path){
if(is_dir($path)){
$dirs=scandir($path);
$c=count($dirs);
for($i=0;$i<$c;$i++){
if($dirs[$i]!='.'&&$dirs[$i]!='..'){
$this->_recurseDelete($path . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . $dirs[$i]);
}
}
if($path!=$this->getTemporaryDirectory()){
rmdir($path);
}
}else{
unlink($path);
}
}
}

Hello,

Each server should take care of temp files. I recommend you to do a cron task that delete them or use default config (on restart or depending on the disk space); but if you prefer to remove each temp file in CreateDocx class, just add this code:

unlink($this->_tempFile);

in line 4411. If you're using templates add this:

unlink($fileName);

after line 4587.

Regards.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, I allready created a for me (for now) valid solution, If it needs to be more specific I will change that later.

Btw: I do honestly disagree with your solution as I can't know from with the cron or one of those the temp files is used or not.
By that my server does NOT restart ;) ,.. and I can not use the default /tmp dir as this would have some security issues.
And finally: if I need to write cron-jobs for every script that creates tmp files,.. for every site that is beeing hosted....

:( I'll endup beeing a cron-programmer :(

However, thanks for your reply!
