WP_Filesystem_ftpsockets::move( string $source, string $destination, bool $overwrite = false ): bool

Moves a file or directory.


After moving files or directories, OPcache will need to be invalidated.

If moving a directory fails, copy_dir() can be used for a recursive copy.

Use move_dir() for moving directories with OPcache invalidation and a fallback to copy_dir().
