Can anyone help. I am trying to strip an environment variable from Apache webserver. It is DOCUMENT_ROOT.
Basically I need to get the value of DOCUMENT_ROOT which will be something like /home/username...this will then be used in a cgi script to read a log from the users home directory. There is only one cgi script that is called and it will look up the log from the location that it is called from. ie www.this_example.com
equates to /home/xyz
So when the script is called it will look up the log from /home/xyz
Likewise from /home/abc
gets the logs from /home/abc and so on. So the cgi script will refer back to where it is being called from. It will be kept as one single script in a cgi-bin for security reasons.
