Ive come across this a few times, and I cannot figure it out.

I usually find out where the site is installed using $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'], however on some servers it reports the htdocs folder its in, on other it reports its parent folder.

Is there a more reliable way of finding out where the site is located so I can navigate up and go into folders no part of htdocs. For example uploads.

Thank you in advance
