<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

$myArray = array();

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

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

$myArray = readDirs($path);

echo '<pre>';
print_r($myArray);
