I have the following php code:

echo dirname(__DIR__).$file['name']

Open in new window


which returns:

/var/www/vhosts/zenbinder.com/httpdocs/vault/includeIMG_4300.JPG.jpeg

But I need it to return:

http://zenbinder.com/vault/smithmike/IMG_4300.JPG.jpeg

FYI -- the "smithmike" is already being stored in a php variable "$username" so we can pull it from there

Since the domain and basic path was static, I found on another site, just keep it simple and use a static path, until you need to call the dynamic user and file. Much simpler than I thought.

<?php echo "http://www.zenbinder.com/vault/".$username."/".$file['name']?>
