Directory Lister is a simple PHP based script created to let you list the contents of a directory and all it's sub-directories and allow you to navigate there within. Just download and install Directory Lister to any web directory and have immediate access to all files and sub-directories under that directory.

Simple Installation

Our clear and simple installation instructions will help you get up and running with Directory Lister in minutes.

List Any Directory

Upload files to any web-accessible directory and Directory Lister will generate listings for you on-the-fly.


Theme support is built in to fit your uniqe style. Control your listing with custom sort ordering of files/folders.

We have extensively tested Directory Lister with all major browsers (and several non-major ones) to ensure the best experience for the maximum number of users. This ensures you and your users, no matter what browser they're using, will have the best possible experience when using Directory Lister.


The process to install Directory Lister is simple:

  1. Download and extract Directory Lister
  2. Copy resources/default.config.php to resources/config.php
  3. Upload index.php and the resources folder to the folder you want listed
  4. Upload additional files to the same directory as index.php

That's it! You should now see a directory listing when browsing to your directory.
