When using PHP, the simplest way to find the absolute path of your files/folders on the server is by creating a simple path.php file with the following contents (click on the “Plain text” box header for copy-pasting):
- echo realpath(dirname(__FILE__));
Put the new file anywhere in the web-accessible folder on your server,
then just access that file from your favourite web-browser – and you’ll have the absolute path shown to you.
Alternatively, you may use the following code:
- echo getcwd();
This also should display the absolute path on your server.
