Postby molok » Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:32 am

Little script to know your Absolute Path:

copy this script in any text editor and save as:

anyname.php

Code: Select all

<?php
$path = getcwd();
echo "Your Absoluthe Path is: ";
echo $path;
?>


then upload this little script to yor root folder and point the browser to it...

cheers

EDIT:
Atached: Module Admin Info, install as any module and give the position cpanel then publish...

hi ...

thanks for code/solution ...

When I did this, I got: "Your Absoluthe Path is: /"

This clearly is not the total path ... what is causing only "/" to display?

thanks!

You can also check the predefined server variables for example:

$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] will return your root directory

$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] will return your domain name
