Hi

Note : this process/files will run on web server means on internet not on local computer.

I want to code php file (php code) which will capable of scanning a web-folder for mp3 files and then generate a alphabatically sorted numbered list of files with file-size as well. It should also check for duplicate files and ignore duplicate.

I am using following code to do just listing (no sorting) but after 2-3 records it prints false record which is not present in web-folder and then continues means work properly. I am unable to know why it prints false record.

Here is my code :

========================PHP Code===========================

<?PHP

// Define the full path to your folder from root
$path = "audio";

// Open the folder
$dir_handle = @opendir($path) or die("Cannot open the damn file $path");
$numb=1;

// Loop through the files
while ($file = readdir($dir_handle)) {

if($file == ".mp3" )

continue;

$fichierexp = $path."/".$file.".txt";
$TheLinkedFile = $path."/".$file;
if(file_exists($fichierexp)) {
@$fp = fopen($fichierexp,'r');
echo "<a href=\"$TheLinkedFile\" target=\"blank\">".fgets($fp,999)."</a><br>";
fclose($fp);
} else {

echo "<b>$numb.   ". "         $file</b><br>"."{play}audio/$TheLinkedFile{/play}";
$filename = $TheLinkedFile;
$bawa1=filesize($filename);
$bawa= round(($bawa1)/1024/1024, 2);
echo 'File Size :'. ($bawa) . ' MB<br><br>';
$numb=$numb+1;
}
}
// Close
closedir($dir_handle);
?>
========================PHP Code===========================

Well look at http://thegurbani.com/index.php/Static-Category/audio.html this page

here ( 3. .. ) is false record
and (7. .) is false record.

Plz correct this error.

Try something like this
<?php

/* ************************************************************************* */

function showFileSize ($file_link) {
 

	$xb = filesize(trim($file_link));

	$tb = 1024*1024*1024*1024;

	$gb = 1024*1024*1024;

	$mb = 1024*1024;

	$kb = 1024;

	   if ($xb >= $tb)	{ $text = number_format(($xb / $tb),3) . " TB"; }

	elseif ($xb >= $gb) { $text = number_format(($xb / $gb),2) . " GB"; }

	elseif ($xb >= $mb) { $text = number_format(($xb / $mb),1) . " MB"; }

	elseif ($xb >= $kb) { $text = number_format(($xb / $kb),0) . " KB"; }

	elseif ($xb >= 0)   { $text = number_format( $xb       ,0) . " bytes"; }

	else                { $text = "0 bytes"; }
 

return ( $text ); }

/* ************************************************************************** */
 
 

$dir	= getcwd();

unset($file_array);
 

// Open my directory, and proceed to gather its contents

if ($dh = opendir($dir)) { // echo "<br />OPENDIR $my_file_path\n";

	while (($filename = readdir($dh)) !== false) {

		if (!eregi('(\.mp3$)',$filename)) continue;

		$file_array[]  = $dir .'/'. $filename;

	}

	closedir($dh);

	if (!is_array($file_array)) { die("No MP3 in $dir"); }

	sort ($file_array);

	reset($file_array);

} // END OPENDIR
 
 

if (!is_array($file_array)) { die("No MP3 in $dir"); }
 

$file_array = array_values($file_array);

natcasesort($file_array);
 

$kount = count($file_array);
 

while ($kount > 0) {

	$kount--;

	$fname = $file_array[$kount];
 

	$t_size	= showFileSize($fname);

	$t_time	= date ('Y-m-d H:i:s',filemtime($fname));

	echo "<br /><a href=\"$fname\">$fname</a> $t_size $t_time \n";

}

Tested. this should work for you.
<?php
 

	$directory = 'audio/';

	$contents = array();

	

	if (is_dir($directory))

	{

		$readdir = @opendir($directory);

		while (false !== ($files = @readdir($readdir)))

		{

			if ($files != '.' && $files != '..' && strpos($files, '.mp3'))

			{

				$contents[] = $files;

			}

		}

		@closedir($readdir);

		// remove duplicates

		$results = array_unique($contents);

		$n = 1;

		foreach ($results as $file)

		{

			echo $n.': <a href="'.$directory.$file.'" target="blank">'.$file.'</a><br>';

			echo 'File Size :'.round(filesize($directory.$file)/1024/1024, 2).'<br>';

			$n++;

		}

	}

	else

	{

		echo "Cannot open the damn file $directory";

	}

?>

Thanks. You are genius.. words are not just enought to thanks you and reward your skills.

Is it possible for this to scan a text file for "directories i.e. webfolders" so that we  can include  more than one directory.

The text file will contain one directory/folder path per line
for example:

========list.txt===========
audio/
video/
aaa/bbb/ccc/flash
123/654/000/okay/more/files
=========list.txt==========

Then output should be
<bold>Directory : audio <bold>
List of files in it
.
..
...

sure, no problem.
<?php

	$list = 'list.txt';

	

	if (file_exists($list))

	{

		$directories = file($list, FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES);

	

		if (count($directories) >0)

		{

			foreach ($directories as $directory)

How is your directory structure setup?

it should be similar to this: (/ is the root of your site)


/audio
/audio/moreMP3
/moremusic/


Then inside the list.txt, it would look like this:
audio/
audio/moreMP3/
moremusic/

The list.txt can be in any directory you want as long as it is linked up properly in the script.
$list = 'list.txt';
or
$list = 'audio/list.txt';
..etc

Any how, i modified your code to this... (list.txt will remain the same no slash "/" at end)

<?php
        $list = 'scan.txt';
       
        if (file_exists($list))
        {
                $directories = file($list, FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES);
       
                if (count($directories) >0)
                {
                        foreach ($directories as $directory)
                        {
                                if (is_dir($directory))
                                {
                                        $contents = array();
                                        $readdir = @opendir($directory);
                                        while (false !== ($files = @readdir($readdir)))
                                        {
                                                if ($files != '.' && $files != '..' && strpos($files, '.'))
                                                {
                                                        $contents[] = $files;
                                                }
                                        }
                                        @closedir($readdir);
                                        // remove duplicates
                                        $results = array_unique($contents);
                                        $n = 1;
                                        echo '<br><br><strong>'.$directory.'</strong><br>';
                                        foreach ($results as $file)
                                        {
                                                echo $n.': <a href="'.$directory."/".$file.'" target="blank">'.$file.'</a><br>';

                                                echo 'File Size : '.round(filesize($directory."/".$file)/1024/1024, 2).'MB<br>';
                                                                      $n++;
                                        }
                                }
                                else
                                {
                                        echo 'Cannot open the directory: '.$directory;
                                }
                        }
                }
                else
                {
