The absolute path for a file or directory is not the same as the URI. The absolute path on the web server is /home/DIR/Xs/something/mydir/.
Here is how to find the absolute path on your web host for a given directory if you can’t find it, or it isn’t shown, in your web hosts control panel.
<?php $getPath = getcwd(); echo $getPath; ?>
- Copy and paste the above code into a text file (take out the space between the less than sign and the question mark):
- Save the file as a PHP file, say abspath.php
- Upload the file into the root directory, or a sub-directory, of your website.
- In your web browser, go to http://www.mysite/abspath.php (or wherever you saved the file to)
