You can write a function that reads a directory and call it recursively for for any items that are subdirectories.

A sample function is attached.

<?php
function dirlist( $dir )
{
	$dh = opendir( $dir );
	if( $dh )
	{
		while( $subitem = readdir($dh) )
		{
			// Ignore . and ..
			if( preg_match('/^\.\.?$/', $subitem ) ) continue;
 
			echo "$dir/$subitem\n";
 
			// Call  function recursively if $subitem is a directory
			if( is_dir("$dir/$subitem") )
				dirlist("$dir/$subitem");
		}
		closedir($dh);
	}
	else
		die("Directory '$dir' not found.");
 
}
 
?>
