From manual page:
I have some troubles with getting list of files from Microsoft's FTP server (Microsoft FTP Service) using ftp:// stream wrapper. There is difference in output, when trailing slash is used or not. I didn't see this problem, when other FTP server (i.e. pure-ftpd) is used.

I tried scan directory with scandir() function, but I get same output using readdir(). See test script.

There is a big problem to get list of files recursively. Directories with backslashes are incorrect and testing functions (like file_exists, is_dir, is_file) doesn't consider those paths correct.

This problem occured even with DirectoryIterator with or without trailing slash.

Test script:
# ftp folder structure:
# /test_folder
#   dir1
#     file1
#   dir2
#     file2

$path = 'ftp://user:password@';

print "with trailing slash:\n";
foreach(scandir($path) as $file) {
    print "$file\n";

print "without trailing slash:\n"
$path = substr($path, 0, -1);
foreach(scandir($path) as $file) {
    print "$file\n";

Expected result:
with trailing slash:
without trailing slash:

Actual result:
with trailing slash:
without trailing slash:

I cannot reproduce this with PHP-7.4.  Is this still an issue for
you with any of the actively supported PHP versions[1]?
