I remember you can put a certain file on your web folder that allows you view all the files in that folder and sub folder..

i think this is a server setting named directory listing... you should look for it in your server control panel

hope it works!

Are you looking for a script to allow you to view files in a directory or are you looking for a way to allow you to view files in the directories on your site using your browser?

Look into the PHP readdir function if you want to write a script.

PHP reddir manual (http://php.net/manual/en/function.readdir.php)

If you want to enable anyone to view the files in a directory on your web site, look into the Apache directive Options Indexes.

You can also use Option Indexes in an .htaccess file. I think that might be what you are looking for. If you use Options Indexes, anyone will be able to view the files in a directory.
