$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

I am using $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] to determine the location on the server of "where I am". We have a "live" version of the system & a "test" version; the test version is in a folder called test. So, for example, www.xyz.com is live & www.xyz.com/test is test.

When I use $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'], I get the path to the live system, even if I am executing in /test.

Why?

Because the 'root' of your web site on the server is the same no matter what subdirectory you are in.
