php can be executed directly.  I don't need to call it within html.

Meanwhile, after adjusting the script without the "if.." and thus forcing
an output, I would get, the output:

 Last modified: December 31 1969 19:00:00.

 ..which is php-speak for "file not found".

 :(

What do you mean "do not output it at all"?  How would I see the result
otherwise?

I just want to produce a report of "last modified" dates of files in
specific directories. And if that works, have the script email the output
on a schedule. But the above is a first step.

How would this would be a security risk?
