DELETE https://collaboractor.com/api/v1/delete/file?login=&password=

file is the name of the file in your personal space to delete.

loginYour identification code.
passwordYour password.

NOTE: A POST is accepted.

$ curl -D - -X DELETE "https://collaboractor.com/api/v1/delete/file_sample_500kB.doc?login=abcdef&password=ABCDEF"

If the file name is invalid, the service returns the error HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request.

If no file has the specified name in your personal space, the service returns the error HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found.

Download the code of the senddelete function from the iZend library. Copy the file in the space of your application.

NOTE: See the page Call the service API for a description of the senddelete function.

Add the file filedelete.php with the following content:

  1. require_once 'sendhttp.php';

Loads the code of the senddelete function.

  1. function file_delete($login, $password, $filename) {

Defines the function file_delete. $login is your identification code. $password is your password. $filename is the name of the file to delete.

  1.     $curl = 'https://collaboractor.com/api/v1/delete/' . urlencode($filename) . '?' . 'login=' . urlencode($login) . '&' . 'password=' . urlencode($password);

Sets $curl to the URL of the delete action with the name of the file, the identification code and the password of the user's account. $filename, $login and $password must be escaped.

  1.     $response=senddelete($curl);

Sends the HTTP request with senddelete. The arguments $filename, login and password are already in $curl.

  1.     if (!$response or $response[0] != 200) {
  2.         return false;
  3.     }

If $response is false, the server is unreachable. If $response[0] doesn't contain the HTTP return code 200 Ok, an execution error has occurred. In case of error, file_delete returns false.

  1.     return true;
  2. }

Returns true if the document has been deleted from your personal space.

EXAMPLE

Assuming you have saved the files sendhttp.php and filedelete.php in the current directory, run PHP in interactive mode, load the file_delete function and call it with as arguments your identification code and password, the name of the file to delete:

$ php -a
php > require_once 'filedelete.php';
php > echo file_delete('abcdef', 'ABCDEF', 'file_sample_500kB.doc') ? 'Ok' : 'Ko';
Ok
php > quit

NOTE: If file_delete returns false, edit the code to display $response.
