Find the Full Path to a File

<?php
  echo dirname(__FILE__);
?>
  1. Save the file as fullpath.php
  2. Upload to the folder you'd like to know the full path to
  3. Go to http://www.yoursite/lots/of/folders/fullpath.php

You'd might be surprised what shows up. Sometimes you need more than just /lots/of/folders/ as your full path to a file (e.g. .htpasswd). This script will allow you to see that.

Posting Code

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
