PHP filesize MB/KB conversion

How can I convert the output of PHP's filesize() function to a nice format with MegaBytes, KiloBytes etc?

like:


  • if the size is less than 1 MB, show the size in KB

  • if it's between 1 MB - 1 GB show it in MB

  • if it's larger - in GB


Answer

Here is a sample:

<?php
// Snippet from PHP Share: http://www.phpshare.org

    function formatSizeUnits($bytes)
    {
        if ($bytes >= 1073741824)
        {
            $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1073741824, 2) . ' GB';
        }
        elseif ($bytes >= 1048576)
        {
            $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1048576, 2) . ' MB';
        }
        elseif ($bytes >= 1024)
        {
            $bytes = number_format($bytes / 1024, 2) . ' kB';
        }
        elseif ($bytes > 1)
        {
            $bytes = $bytes . ' bytes';
        }
        elseif ($bytes == 1)
        {
            $bytes = $bytes . ' byte';
        }
        else
        {
            $bytes = '0 bytes';
        }

        return $bytes;
}
?>
