(I'll have a go at answering the actual question, rather than
posting about php.ini files which is a related, but separate,
/var/www/host.domain.tld/phpapp => /usr/share/phpapp
Then in the application directory have a config file which includes a
host-specific config file:
To my mind, this should fetch
'/var/www/host.domain.tld/config/phpapp.php', but it doesn't; it looks
My question is, why?
Because PHP opens files relative to the currently running script's
location. If you are running /usr/share/phpapp/myfile.php then
require_once('a.php') will require /usr/share/phpapp/a.php, regardless
And the supplementary question is, how do I get
the behaviour I'm after?
require_once($_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] . "/config/phpapp.php");
(assuming your site's document root is set to /var/www/host.domain.tld/
for each site).
