Protect PHP renaming with a pin number

I'm trying to protect a php file to prevent it from being used frequently outside of my web. My idea is to rename it with a 4-digit pin using the code: $pin = mt_rand (1000, 9999);
... but I don't know how to rename the old file/pin with the new one: rename ("old", "new"); ???

Any help will be welcome.

That's security by obscurity, and it doesn't work.  You should be able to post the URL of that file online and not worry about what will happen when people access it, because the code in the file will stop people from abusing it.  If you don't have any security in your actual code, and you're counting on people just not knowing the URL of the file, that's a problem.
