Is there a way to get the absolute path of a file while having it included in another script?
So I'm trying to include a file that's in folder A while I'm in folder B but it keeps trying to refer to folder B's location.
I've tried dirname, $SERVER['PHP_SELF'], cwd(), but they still return a relative path.
You can try like this
Since PHP 5.3.0 you can use also the magic constant
__DIR__ More info in the docs
Another way is
$rootDir = realpath($_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]); include "$rootDir/yourfile.php";
