php include not absolute

Last Modified: 2007-05-02
Ive got a php file which holds some constants for my site, I can include them so long as the file is in the same directory by using 'include('const.php'); however to organsise the site I want to use folders, however I cannot reference my const.php file from sub directories by using something like 'include("..\const.php");', the site will be moving around onto several servers, so cant use things like 'include('c:\htdocs\const.php');'

Any simple ideas?
