In order to read sub folders you will need to use a function. See the code below for a basis of just outputting the files.

Change the path at the very bottom of the code snippet to the path you want to look at. PHP must have access to that path for the script to execute. Try it out.
function read_my_dir($dir)
{
	global $tfile,$tdir;$i=0;$j=0;$myfiles;
	$myfiles[][] = array();
	if (is_dir($dir))
	{
		if ($dh = opendir($dir))
		{
			while (($file=readdir($dh)) !== false)
			{
				if (!is_dir($dir."\\".$file))
				{
					$tfile[$i]=$file;
					$i++;
					echo $dir."\\".$file." - <b>File</b><br>";
				}
				else
				{
					if (($file != ".") && ($file != ".."))
					{
						$tdir[$j]=$file;
						echo $dir."\\".$file." - <b>Directory</b><br>";
						//$sep = "\\";
						read_my_dir($dir."\\".$file);
						$j++;
					}
				}
			}
			closedir($dh);
		}
	}
}
 
read_my_dir("C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\experts-exchange");

Hi,

Can you show me your desired output format in a quick example?

On what field do you need your output to be sorted? Number of subdirectories? Number of files, or just alphanumerical?

Kind regards
