i want to know is it possible for a php script which is running on linux, to read files in a directory which resides in windows platform?
i have a php program/script running on a linux server. most of the users here are using windows platform.
wut this program do is pretty simple. get the directory path from the user where inside the directory exists like a hundred text files. the program will read all the files in the directory, perform some tasks and put the output into a folder.
so how do I:
a) read the files in the directory specified by the user which is using windows platform on their local machine.
b) is it possible for php to read files from the client side?
would appreciate it if could give/suggest other way/method of doing this.
