How to get Root Directory Path of a PHP project

0 votes

I have this folder structure in my PHP project. (this is as shown in eclips)

-MySystem
    +Code
    +Data_Access
    -Public_HTML
        +css
        +js
        +Templates
    -resources

When I try this code

echo $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

output is

D:/workspace

How can I get the path to RootDirectory of the system (MySystem), without hardcoding the Folder Name?

Hello @kartik,

Try

$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

contains this path:

D:/workspace

In that case you could explode the string by slashes and return the first one:

$pathInPieces = explode('/', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']);
echo $pathInPieces[0];

This will output the server's root directory.

When you use the constant DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR instead of the hardcoded slash ('/') this code is also working under Windows.

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
