Accessing a directory

I need to require_once("temp/config.php"); a file that resides outside the protected folder. Can anyone suggest how I can do that.

Directory listing.

htdocs->my application->required folder



Check out your app’s index.php file for some inspiration.

No inspiration from looking at the index file. Can somebody help here.

How about:


If you place the "require_once" code in the index.php file the call would be

require_once(dirname(__FILE__).'/htdocs/my application/required folder/config.php');
