I have this code works fine if i leave the directory the blank will count the the number if files
<?php

$directory = ' ';
$images = glob($directory . "*.txt");


$filecount = count(glob($directory . "*.txt"));
echo "<p><b>";
echo $filecount;


?>

Open in new window

but  when I want to do this it does not work
<?php

$directory = 'C:\Projects\test';
$images = glob($directory . "*.txt");


$filecount = count(glob($directory . "*.txt"));
echo "<p><b>";
echo $filecount;


?>

Open in new window

also would need some code to allow across a network eg \\\192.168.0.1\folder

The php server does not have access to the c:\ drive.  When left blank it will default to the root of the server, this is where the server is located on your hard drive, not the root of the hard drive.

Depends where the folder is. The default installation directory in windows is

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2

in linux it is

/var/www/html/

To the php server, this is the root, it cannot go above this. All the directories you want to work with have to be in this root directory.
