You can use PDF Page Numberer to get the page number from an existing PDF file, you can also call PDF Page Numberer Command Line from your script to count the page number for all PDF files in a folder.

PDF file contains a "/Count" tag, you can use following PHP code to read the "/Count" value from PDF file directly,

if (!$fp = @fopen($_REQUEST['file'],"r")) {
        echo 'failed opening file '.$_REQUEST['file'];
else {
        while(!feof($fp)) {
                $line = fgets($fp,255);
                if (preg_match('/\/Count [0-9]+/', $line, $matches)){
                        preg_match('/[0-9]+/',$matches[0], $matches2);
                        if ($max<$matches2[0]) $max=$matches2[0];
echo 'There '.($max<2?'is ':'are ').$max.' page'.($max<2?'':'s').' in '. $_REQUEST['file'].'.';

However, a simple script will not do it completely, because some PDF files are contain nesting level of "/Count" tag, above simple PHP code can't read the nesting level of "/Count" tag correctly.

Now, you can use our PDF Page Numberer Command Line to read the page count from PDF file, for example,

pdftools.exe -r -i test.pdf

In general, above command line will output following information,

PDF FileName : D:\temp4\test.pdf

PDF Security : 0
PDF PageCount : 1
MediaBox :
