we  are looking for a simple  piece of code  that will send us an email  whenever anyone
accesses a particular  directory  on the server.  we have a bunch of files that people will  download
by browser access.  There is no index file in the directory.  we could write an index.php  file
that would  send an email  on  access, but on script termination, we want the  file directory
to  show up so people can download.

this forum is for helping you debug your own code.  If you are looking for someone to write some code for you, please make a thread in the freelance forum (read the rules first). If you are looking for a prefab script, please make use of www.google.com.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Write a script which lists the files that can be downloaded and make each filename a link to a download script.

In the download script, send the email and download the file.
<a href='download.php?file=file1'> File 1 </a>
<a href='download.php?file=file2'> File 2 </a>

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
