When you use "/." as parameter for scandir function, you list the content of your drive's root in place of you server's root.

Reproduce code:

//List directories only
function list_dirs($path)
   $list = scandir($path);
   foreach ($list as $number => $filename)
       if ( $filename !== '.' && $filename !== '..' && is_dir("$path/$filename") )
           // Asign more readable and logic variables
           $dir = $filename;
           $url = apache_request_headers();

               // Print Dirs with link
               print ("<a href=\"http://$url[Host]/$path/$dir\">/$path/$dir</a> <br>\n");
	       $newpath=$path . "/" . $dir;




Expected result:
i would like to see the directories contained in the root of the server.

Actual result:
I see the directories contained in the root of the drive
