I am storing all my files which contains sensitive information on my sites home directory.
the way I access it is via code below
[php]$path = dirname($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'folderiwanttoaccess'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'fileiwantoaccess.php';[/php]
I am using this approach so it is a bit portable, not path dependent
I just want to ask if there is a better way to do it, like a recommended way or best practice
Thank you in advance
