PHP Question

Get image JPG and jpg

I've been bothered by this problem for a while now.
I'm trying to load images in PHP but there are jpg and JPG images and when I try to load images by jpg the JPG ones are not found (obviously)

$img1 = '<img src="imgs/'.$firstImage.'.jpg"></img>';
$img2 = '<img src="imgs/'.$secondImage.'.jpg"></img>';
$img3 = '<img src="imgs/'.$thirdImage.'.jpg"></img>';
$img4 = '<img src="imgs/'.$fourthImae.'.jpg"></img>';


Any idea how to fix this problem?

I tried using
if_exists
but that didn't work out well

if (file_exists('http://website_url.nl/imgs/'.$firstImage.'.jpg')) {
$img1 = '<img src="imgs/'.$firstImage.'.jpg"></img>';
} else {
$img1 = '<img src="imgs/'.$firstImage.'.JPG"></img>';
}


Problem now is that it can't find the images with regular jpg. For example I try to load
23.jpg
but the script tries to load
23.JPG
because the file
23.jpg
doesn't exist, while it does exist and is placed in the folder while
23.JPG
isn't. It works with the JPG files. For example
DOC_202.JPG
is found because
DOC_202.jpg
doesn't exist so it loads the
JPG
one. But with the
jpg
ones it won't work. Any solutions?

With kind regards,

Answer

Just check for the file in your local directory, don't use the url

if(file_exists('imgs/'.$firstImage.'.jpg')) {

Most url wrapper don't support stat(), see http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.file-exists.php (blue note about php5 at the end) and http://www.php.net/manual/en/wrappers.php
