To delete images from a folder in CodeIgniter, you can use the unlink() function in PHP. Here is an example code snippet to delete images from a folder:

  1. Define the folder path where the images are located:
1
$folderPath = 'path/to/folder/';


  1. Get the list of image files in the folder:
1
$files = glob($folderPath . '*');


  1. Loop through each file and delete them using the unlink() function:
1
2
3
4
5
foreach ($files as $file) {
    if (is_file($file)) {
        unlink($file);
    }
}


  1. You can put this code inside a controller method or a helper function and call it whenever you need to delete images from a folder.


Make sure to replace 'path/to/folder/' with the actual path to the folder containing the images that you want to delete. Also, make sure that the folder has the necessary write permissions for the deletion to occur.
