As I said in my OP: I could just run a "cd" to the directory parent and do it there - that would solve the problem - but that's simply too dangerous if the script generator throws an error on the next set of commands (a risk I do not want to take).
Thank you, though. I'm hoping to find a solution instead with PHP. One of these generated files comes out of PHP in a different directory path where a change of directory is not possible.
