This function renames a resource.


bool renameResource ( string resourceName, string newResourceName, [ string organizationalPath ] )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: resource:rename(...)

Required Arguments

  • resourceName: The name of resource to rename.
  • newResourceName: The name of what the resource should be renamed to.

Optional Arguments

  • organizationalPath: If you want to store the new resource inside a category.


Returns true if the resource has been renamed successfully, false otherwise. This could fail if the resource name already is in use, if a directory already exists with the name you've specified (but this isn't a valid resource) or if the name you specify isn't valid. It could also fail if the disk was full or for other similar reasons. Won't work on a started resource or if the resource is not loaded (not known by MTA (use /refresh))


This example renames the resource "reload" to "reload2":

function renameReloadResource()
	renameResource("reload", "reload2");
addEventHandler("onResourceStart", resourceRoot, renameReloadResource);


Minimum supported server 1.1.1-9.03316
Minimum supported client n/a

Note: Using this function requires the resource to have the above minimum version declared in the meta.xml <min_mta_version> section. e.g. <min_mta_version server="1.1.1-9.03316" />
