View Full Version : Resolved Including Files Before Root Web Dir?

Is it possible to include files before the root web dir?

lets say I have 3 sites in a vps that look like this

/public_html/web1/ - website1.com
/public_html/web2/ - website2.com
/public_html/web2/ - website3.com

i want to include a config file from

/var/webfiles (public_html is in same dir)

or /webfiles (var is in same dir)

Is there a trick to do this? Do I need to edit the php config?

Nevermind you can. Just tested it with SSH :)

Hi groog,

Yes you can do it, you just include the absolute path to the file..


You just need to make sure that the apache user that is calling the included file has permissions to that location.
