Find the Full Path to a File

Last updated on:
  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

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
