Bug #30368 is_dir() return true after rmdir()
Submitted: 2004-10-08 18:20 UTC Modified: 2004-10-08 18:42 UTC
From: andre dot steffens at adress-research dot de Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: Directory function related
PHP Version: 4.3.9 OS: Win2k
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

is_dir() seems to cache the last status for a given dir and don't check if it still exists.

Reproduce code:

$err = is_dir('dir');


Expected result:
$err = false;

Actual result:
$err = true;

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

Expected behaviour, read about clearstatcache();

I think that after some file/dir functions the stat cache should be clean automatically.

like: rmdir(); unlink(); ... all functions that alter files or dirs ...
