Try the following and you will get a list of all the files in the selected directory.

<?php
// ... assuming that you already have the database connection and the ID value in $v
// following lines will read the filenames from the directory and list in a table.

if ($handle = opendir('/var/www/html/$v/.')) {
  echo "<table>";
    while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if ($file != "." && $file != "..") {
            echo "<tr><td>$file</td></tr>\n";
        }
    }
    closedir($handle);
  echo "</table>";
}
?>

Hope, it will help.

Best of luck.
