use below function, replace the folder path in $path variable in third line from below

function readDirs($path){
  $dirHandle = opendir($path);
  while($item = readdir($dirHandle)) {
    $newPath = $path."/".$item;
    if(is_dir($newPath) && $item != '.' && $item != '..') {
       echo "Found Folder $newPath<br>";
       readDirs($newPath);
    }
    else{
      echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;Found File or .-dir '.$item.'<br>';
    }
  }
}

$path =  "drupal";
echo "$path<br>";

readDirs($path);
