php glob scan in subfolders for a file using -'php,file,search,glob'

php glob scan in subfolders for a file  using -'php,file,search,glob'

I have a server with a lot of files inside various folders, sub-folders, and sub-sub-folders.

I'm trying to make a search.php page that would be used to search the whole server for a specific file. If the file is found, then return the location path to display a download link.

Here's what i have so far:

$search = "";
$found_files = glob("$root/*/");
$downloadlink = str_replace("$root/", "", $found_files[0]);
if (!empty($downloadlink)) {
echo "<a href=\"$downloadlink\">$search</a>";

The script is working perfectly if the file is inside the root of my domain name... Now i'm trying to find a way to make it also scan sub-folders and sub-sub-folders but i'm stuck here.
