You cannot use the file input type to access a server resource unless you're physically on the server. Input works via client, not server side code.
To do what you're looking for, you can look into directory scanning functions such as glob and recursiveDirectoryIterator.
From this, you can list the filesystem structure of the server itself, and go from there. There will be no call to an input type to request a file.
Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)PHP Code:
header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');
