    Question PHP Document Root

    I just migrated my website from another host, and I'm having some trouble with PHP.

    I have this line in my index.php:
    PHP Code:
    require($_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]."/template.php"); 
    This throws an error:
    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/var/www/html/template.php' (include_path='.:') in /membri/kendallfrey/index.php on line 12

    Using PHP, how can I access the root folder where my files are from any subfolder? $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] is normally supposed to do that, but it doesn't work here. I don't want to have to manually specify a relative path.

    Default

    kendallfrey:

    this unfortunately a know issue affecting Apache as the environment variable is not set correctly.

    You should force at the beginning of your scripts:

    $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] = "/membri/kendallfrey";
