Does anyone know if there is a way to change many file extensions in one go.

ie file.htm to file.php.

I have a software program which generates many htm files for our fixtures etc. I can easily add the include("header.php"); and include("footer.php") parts but would still need to change the type.

Not a problem with a few files but when there are 240 plus, it becomes a nightmare.

Currently use nukewrap but was looking for an alternative.

Any ideas?

I know that
Code:
<?php

if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("mainfile.php"); }
include("header.php");
?>
works if the file is in the root, but if a file is in root/folder/file.php, does it need to be
Code:
<?php

if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("siteurl/mainfile.php"); }
include("siteurl/header.php");
?>

Sorry but I've been searching for an hour Crying or Very sad

The include is relative to mainfile.php . So you shouldn't need to change anything.

But if I put the file in the root it appears as it should Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

But if I put the file in a folder, it gives me a blank page. or errors

Then prefix the include with ../ for every sub folder depth.

I did that first but got blank pages. Shocked
Code:
<?php

if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("../mainfile.php"); }
include("../header.php");
?>

That's why I wondered if it need to be a url

(pages at above links updated with the ../)

Here is the whole file in case there is something else causing this.

Code:
<?php

if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("../mainfile.php"); }
include("../header.php");
?>

Without looking at your file structure it's hard to answer for sure. There are different ways to do this. A sure way is to use an absolute path rather than a relative path. See if Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! helps.

You can use a url but it really isn't necessary. Look at index.php in RavenNuke(tm). On line 23 you see require_once 'mainfile.php';. Since both index.php and mainfile.php are in the same folder, PHP by default will look for mainfile.php in the same folder where it found index.php, regardless of whether or not index.php is in root or in several folders down. However you called index.php sets the "root" path, in essence.

I have created a series of scripts, for you, that [hopefully] will demonstrate this more clearly. Download them from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

This is the file struture.
Image
site_files2 is the root.

ws.2009_main.php is effectively the index file.

When I put an absolute path "http://westonpoolleague.org.uk/mainfile.php" I get Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

If I understand it correctly, the fixtures folder is the sub folder 1 level deep.

Sorry if I haven't understood. Bang Head

Your host does not allow include access by url, which as I said, you shouldn't need anyway Smile. Are you sure $mainfile is being set?

I didn't have to prefix mainfile.php because it is in the same sub-folder


Does that mean I need to have mainfile.php in the sub-folder (fixtures) as well?

I feel a bit like a clueless idiot atm.

So reading that again as well as looking at Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
level-1/index.php becomes the root path.

If so, then mainfile.php needs to be in the same folder. Doesn't it?

or would it need an include path

Yes. Or just do an include '../mainfile.php';

You would add ../ for each level that mainfile.php is above your current folder.

That's what's confusing me. I have

<?php
if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("../mainfile.php"); }
include("../header.php");
?>

But don't understand why I have a blank page Shocked

It should work. Question

without the ../ or with ../../ I get the errors as I expected (now I expect them anyway Very Happy )

Can't see what is missing. ' instead of " ?

OK.

tried this out on my local setup and get error messages instead of the blank page.

Warning: require_once(./config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\weston\mainfile.php on line 147

You are going to need to change all links in all scripts that are not in the root path.

PostPosted: Tue Sep 22, 2009 12:03 pm Reply with quote

Change?
from
A href="ws_2009_main.php"
to
A href="fixtures/ws_2009_main.php"?
A href="http://localhost/weston/fixtures/ws_2009_main.php"?

236 files 701 links. Good job my old Dreamweaver MX has a find and replace.

Not necessarily in mass. I shouldn't have said "links". What I mean is, if you had to change the call to mainfile.php to ../mainfile.php then each script will have to be examined to see what scripts they call to see how it relates to where ../mainfile.php is located.

PostPosted: Tue Sep 22, 2009 4:36 pm Reply with quote

ws_2009_main.php is in effect index.php. All the other files are in the same folder and all have ../mainfile.php.

They all have
Code:
<?php

if (!isset($mainfile)) { include("../mainfile.php"); }
include("../header.php");
?>
<HTML>
Whatever
</HTML>
<?php
include("../footer.php");
?>


All links are to other files in the same folder

I think what would be easier is to create a PHP wrapper. Use mod_rewrite to point all the .html requests to the PHP script, which will look up and grab the actual .html content

Not knowing what mod_rewrite was, I googled it. From what I can understand mod_rewrite is not easy to understand and use for the beginner.

I thought putting the ../mainfile ../header ../footer bits did wrap the html content.

I've learned (thanks to earlier replies) that the ../ tells a file in a folder where to look for the information needed to display the page.

So having told it where to find the top bit (header) bottom bit (footer) and everything in between (maiinfile), it should also now know everything else it needs to display the page. Confused

From what I can see (with my limited knowledge Very Happy ) it's finding ../mainfile.php but thinks ./config.php is somewhere else.

I don't want to keep taking up peoples time, so perhaps it's best just to leave it.

Many thanks for your time and patience.

I've learned (thanks to earlier replies) that the ../ tells a file in a folder where to look for the information needed to display the page.

The ../ does not tell the system where to look. The ../ tells the system to look 1 level/folder up. If the file was 3 levels up then you would code it ../../../file.php .

Remember, everything is relative. So, mainfile.php and config.php are in the same folder. So, since you called mainfile.php by pointing it 1 folder up ( ../mainfile.php ) you are now in that folder, 1 level up. So, config.php, relative to mainfile.php, is not another folder up; it's in the same place. So call it by config.php or ./config.php (note only one dot - ./ ).

Sorry. I understood telling the system to look 1 level/folder up, as telling the system where to look.

So, calling mainfile.php by pointing it 1 folder up ( ../mainfile.php ) and as you are now in that folder. This should also now realise that config.php, is in the same place/folder.

Or am I just not getting it?

Shocked Shocked
