Browsing Mac With PHP

Postby NinjaJoshy » 03. February 2010 02:50

So I recently installed xampp on my macbook in the hopes of managing some media with a gallery app I built using PHP and mySQL. Currently they script works by scanning a directory located in the /htdocs/ folder, no biggie. I was wondering if it was possible for a PHP script to access the rest of my HD? So say I was storing my media outside of my /applications/xampp/htdocs/ directory, can I access them using xampp and PHP?

Yes, PHP can access all folders (not only the foldery beyond DocumentRoot). But the folders must be readable for the User which executes Apache ("nobody" per Default, see httpd.conf).
