    is there a way u can list the directories of a website, like a program or something. if i have a folder filled with files on a webserver i can simply see the listing if there is no index file. but is there any programs that just list all the directories anyway of websites so i will know all the directories eg..

    www.site.net/main/
    www.site.net/images/
    www.site.net/files/
    www.site.net/files/downloads/
    ect...

    or even listing the files on an ftp without being logged in...

    public_html/main/
    public_html/images/
    ect...

    any way this can be done? with a program or manual?

    thanx

    not sure if this was the right forum

    Are you talking about your own site or someone else's?

    If it is your own site and you have PHP then you can use a script I created here Dir List Script

    If it is someone else's site then it's not possible.

    Oh hang on. I think I read that wrong.

    You want to recursively read ALL the folders.. even multiple folders deep ?

    i dont understand that? recursively?

    i basically just want to list all the directories on a server whether its through ftp or http. not too bothered about the files on the server just the directories on mine and another server

    thanx
