    Try this program in php to check if file exists :
    Code:
    <?PHP
     
    $filename = 'file.csv'; 
    IF (FILE_EXISTS($flnm)) 
    {
    PRINT "The file $flnm exists";
    } 
    ELSE 
    {
    PRINT "The file $flnm does not exist";
    }
     
    ?>

    Code:
    bool file_exists ( string $filename )
    This Checks whether a file or directory exists or not. On windows, use //computername/share/filename or \\computername\share\filename to check files on network shares.I'm thinking the quickest solution for this is to use the fopen() function... The file_exists() function doesn't support remote URL's, however, fopen() does.file() - Reads entire file into an array, is_writable() - Tells whether the filename is writable.

    Code:
    function file_nm($pth, $fme){
        if ($pos = strrpos($fme, '.')) {
               $nm = substr($fme, 0, $ps);
               $ext = substr($fme, $ps);
        } else {
               $nm = $fme;
        }
     
        $nwpth = $pth.'/'.$fme;
        $nwme = $fme;
        $count = 0;
        while (file_exists($nwpth)) {
               $nwname = $name .'_'. $count . $ext;
               $nwpth = $pth.'/'.$nwname;
               $count++;
         }
     
        return $nwme;
