I figured out how to access folder contents on a Windows (needs full path) but cannot get it on a linux system.  It's on the localhost - you'll see the folder path.
Code is attached:

<?php

$account="account";
$adImage="Images";
$directory = "C:/var/www/Planroom/DataBase/account/Ads/Images";
// tried "/var/www/Planroom/Database/account/Ads/Images" with and without initial slash
// also "/Database/account/Ads/Images" with and without initial slash
$handler = opendir($directory);

if(file_exists($directory)) {

    $results = Array();
    $x=0;

    while ($file = readdir($handler)) {
       if ($file != "." && $file != "..") {
        $results[$x] = $file;
        $x+=1;
      }
    }
    closedir($handler);
echo($x);  // $x=0
}
?>

Put this line on top of your file:

phpinfo();

Open in new window


and when the file is executed (opened in browser) you search for DOCUMENT_ROOT to how the path to this file is constructed. Try to adjust that in a way to reach you desired location.

Full path with slash at beginning should work in general. Maybe your PHP is configured not to let you access the directory or the directory access rights are not correct.

Do you get an error message ?

Try adding this line to your file before opendir if you do not see any error message:
error_reporting(E_ALL);
