Reverse Order Of Directory Listing

Jul 8, 2007

I am using the following code to list the subdirectories under a main directory.  However, I want to reverse the order that they are currently listing in.  Preferably, I would like them to list based on each sub-directory's last modification time, with the most recently modified directories at the top of the list.

if ($handle = opendir('/some_directory')) {
    while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if ($file != "." && $file != "..") {
            echo "$file";

Reverse Order Of XML?

May 11, 2011

I'm using PHP to output data from an XML file. It's defaulting to chronological order, which I'd like to reverse. Is this possible with PHP? If so, how?

Here's my page and code:

$file = '';
$xml = simplexml_load_file($file);
foreach ($xml as $event_date) {
if(!empty($event_date->event['vn']) && !empty($event_date->event['hn']) && !empty($event_date->event['vs']) && !empty($event_date->event['hs']))
echo '<li>';.............

Reverse Order - Last Record

Sep 20, 2005

I would like to start at the end, say page 25, and the next to be 24, 23, 22 etc. to work in reverse. Guidance would be appreciated very much. (The problem is that the latest is always the last record, and there's where I need the pages to start.)

$next = $_GET['id'] + 1;
$previous = $_GET['id'] - 1;
$total = 45;

if ($previous > -1)
echo '<p><a href="?id=' . $previous . '">Previous</a> | '
if ($next <= $total)
echo '<a href="?id=' . $next . '">Next</a><br>'

Searching Through And Listing A Remote Directory ( Directory Listings Enabled )?

Jul 28, 2010

I've been working on a script for a while now, and I'm sure it doesn't look great and all, and it's probably really messed up.. But right now I've finally got it working! There's only 1 thing I'd really like to add..Searching through & listing of remote directories! The directories I'm trying to list have directory listings enabled, and I think it *should* be possible. I just have no clue how.

Here's my current code in a beautiful mix of HTML and PHP:

$border_size = "0";
function returner($what) {
return $what;


So right now my question to you PHP freaks is, *This* is one of the directories I wish to be able to search through & list..

Reading A File In Reverse Order

Jul 17, 2005

I need to read a file (line-by-line) in reverse order, without reading the
whole file into memory first.

Is there an easy way of doing this? As in, is there a PHP function I could

The solution has to be platform independent, so "popen("tac $filename")...
wouldn't work.

Example input and ouput:

<myfile.txt input>
line 1
line 2
line 3
</myfile.txt input>

<output from php script>
line 3
line 2
line 1
</output from php script>

Session Var Is Assigned In Reverse Order?

Aug 21, 2010

Why the session var is assigned in reverse order.

$_SESSION['name'] = $myVar;
and not,
$myVar = $_SESSION['name'];


And number two, my host has magic quotes turned on, so I have a little scriptie scrubbing all my php vars(post, get, cookie, etc.).When I added the session var, for example:$_SESSION = array_map('trim', $_SESSION);to the list, PHP generated an error saying session is not an array, or some such malarky.Now that I look at it, I don't need to do mysql-real-escape-string or strip-slashes to the session var since its not user input, but why would php say its not an array?or is this just an erroneous error report?

Show The First 30 Records In Reverse Order

Reverse File Upload Order

Jun 2, 2007

I'm for some reason not able to reverse the array of files I'm uplading. I have a form for uploading 4 images at once. becuase it's javascript on the form, it adds a newfile browse and places the previous one below. that means though when you hit upload, the first file you selected is the last, and vice veras. on the process end I'm suing this

$photos_uploaded = $_FILES['photo_filename'];
$photos_uploaded = array_reverse($photos_uploaded, true);

true, makes no difference, and array_reverse makes no difference, I always get the last file first. for a sequential photo album, this is no good.

Number Processing / Value Needs To Be Changed To The Reverse Order?

Aug 2, 2010

In a multidimensional array, each array has a field 'order'. I need to change this value as follows:

0 -> 3
1 -> 2
2 -> 1
3 -> 0
4 -> 7
5 -> 6
6 -> 5
7 -> 4
8 -> 9
9 -> 8


Ill be doing this while iterating through the array as follows

$c = 0;
foreach($data['images'] as $i)
//$i['order'] contains the original order value
$processed_imgs[$c]['file'] = $i['file'];
$processed_imgs[$c]['text'] = $i['text'];
$processed_imgs[$c]['order'] = 'X';

$i['order'] contains the original order value (left column in the first code snippet, coming out of the DB ASC) and should be changed to the corresponding number in the right column.

So basically, the value needs to be changed to the reverse order, while looking at each set of numbers in blocks of 4. I will not know what the highest order number will be, it will increase as new images are added.

What's the best way to do this using the above foreach?

Sort An Array In Reverse Order Of Values?

Dec 4, 2010

I want to sort an array in reverse order of values. I used arsort php function but the result is not good for me.


I want to sort next array:
myArray = array("d" => 1, "f" => 2, "b" => 3, "c" => 4, "e" => 2);
after using arsort php function the result is:
myArray =array ( "c" => 4, "b" => 3, "e" => 2, "f" => 2, "d" => 1 );

which it is not good because the arsort function doesn't keep initial order of elements in array.

I want the result like:

myArray =array ( "c" => 4, "b" => 3, "f" => 2, "e" => 2, "d" => 1 );

f before e order, like from original array. keys with same value to not reverse.

Gallery Thumbs Are Not Showing In Reverse Order?

Dec 6, 2010

What it's doing, or is supposed to be doing, is taking a thumb called 'thumb.jpg' from each folder within my gallery folder and displaying it in reverse order on a page. I only want a maximum number of images to display on the page at any one time, so that if I end up uploading loads of folders in the future, it will only display a set amount of thumbs on one page.

I want the thumbs displayed in reverse order, so that the newest appears first.

Here's the code... and as far as I can see, it should work... and I'm sure I have had it working in the past (I've just come back to working on it after a while) however now, it's putting the thumbs in a random order.

My folders are all in the gallery folder, and are named 001, 002, 003, 004, 005, 006, etc. I want them to display with 006 at the top and to de-increment, but only for the most recent 16 folders.

Code: [Select]
$images = "gallery/"; # Location of galleries 
$cols   = 4; # Number of columns to display 
$max     = 16; # Maximum number of galleries to show

Directory Listing Pulling

A very simple directory listing isnt pulling all the files and I'm pulling my hairs trying to figure out why: PHP Code:

function DirReader($dir){

if (is_file($file)) echo "<b>".$dir."/</b>".$file." is a file<br><br>";
elseif ((is_dir($file)) && (trim(str_replace(".", "",$file)) !== "")) {


As you can see, not much to the code, but it seems to only pull 1 or 2 files, perhaps until it finds a directory, on any given directory.

Listing Files In Directory

Directory Listing Of Any Website ?

One of my professors said something vague about how you could use a PHP script to list all the files that are in the same directory as some particular web page.I've been trying to figure out how to do this but have had no luck... The only solutions I could figure out were using file handling functions, but whatever I came up with only worked on local directories.

I get that this might not be possible on most websites because of security reasons, but then there's a lot that I don't know about PHP so I thought I could ask here. What would I have to use to do it?

Listing Files In A Directory?

May 3, 2011

I have the following piece of PHP code to retrieve a list of files on a directory, and then build links to each file:

$dir=""; // Directory where files are stored
if ($dir_list = opendir($dir)){
while(($filename = readdir($dir_list)) !== false){
<li><a href="<?php echo $filename; ?>"><?php echo $filename;


it is all nice and fine, but it builds two links too many. the first link leads to the folder where the php file resides, and the second link leads to the folder that contains the folder where the php file resides. I was wondering if there is a way, other than putting an if statement inside my while loop, to have php only generate links for the files on the directory I wish, excluding the other two links.
