Well, Everything is working fine.. but when I allow someone to upload files in any map in htdocs and they should use a $readdir script they can list all my pc files.. How can I prevent them from reading outside my htdocs dir??

php.ini:
open_basedir = "PathToHtdocs"

or httpd.conf:
php_admin_value open_basedir "PathToHtdocs"

No. But you can put this special script in an extra directory.

Example:
httpd.conf
------------------------------------------------------------
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">
php_admin_value open_basedir "C:/xampp/htdocs"
</Directory>

<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/special">
php_admin_value open_basedir none
</Directory>
------------------------------------------------------------

All scripts in "C:/xampp/htdocs" and below have only access to "C:/xampp/htdocs" and below. But scripts in "C:/xampp/htdocs/special" can access the whole server.

Can I just put that code in the same httpd.conf file in apache or should I create a seperate file called httpd.conf for example in the dir I want to allow access?

You must adapt the existing entries (<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">) in the httpd.conf and/or extend the file with the new entries (<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/special">).

There can be only one httpd.conf in your system.
