PHP - Listing the contents of a directory

October 2017

With PHP, the contents of a directory and its subdirectories can be viewed. Here below is a recursive function, allowing you to browse directories and subdirectories and view the files:

function ScanDirectory($Directory){

  $MyDirectory = opendir($Directory) or die('Error');
	while($Entry = @readdir($MyDirectory)) {
		if(is_dir($Directory.'/'.$Entry)&& $Entry != '.' && $Entry != '..') {
                         echo '<ul>'.$Directory;
                        echo '</ul>';
		else {
			echo '<li>'.$Entry.'</li>';
