The assertDirectoryNotExists() function is a builtin function in PHPUnit and is used to assert an directory path not to exists. This assertion will return true in the case if given directory path doesn’t exists else return false. In case of true the asserted test case got passed else test case got failed.

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as shown in the above syntax. The parameters are described below:
