Count Number of Files in a Directory / Folder – PHP

Hi Guys,
Today I share some useful topic related to two inbuilt function s in php for count number of files in php. The functions are:

  • glob(()
  • count()

Here’s a simple code of PHP code to get the total number of files in a directory using the glob() and count() function.

The first function to discuss is glob() it allows us to perform a search for pathnames using wildcards common to the best known shells.

The count function helps to count all files in specified directory.



the Output will be

Total number Of files in a folder:4

We can count all the files in a folder and also count particular extension files(.jpeg / .php / .pdf etc)

The output will be:

Total number of php file in a folder :3
