Check directory iterator class. Here is sample code

$dirIterator = new DirectoryIterator(dirname(__FILE__));
foreach ($dirIterator as $fileInfo) {
    if($fileInfo->isDot() || !$fileInfo->isFile()) {
    echo "<p>".$fileInfo->getFilename() . "</p>";

how do i then make each of the files in the directory able for download
