Anyone know what the equivalent of $DOCUMENT_ROOT on Apache would be using IIS?

I know there isn't an equivalent variable, but if I want to set it manually what am I looking for? (not explaining very well Rolling Eyes )

i.e on Apache it would look like this:
/hsphere/local/home/darren/fancy-rats.co.uk

on IIS it would look like this:

Your host will tell you the path to your document root.

If you want to set it manually, use some code like this:

Code:
$DOCUMENT_ROOT='d:\inetpub\wwwroot\domain.com';
or
Code:
$HTTP_SERVER_VARS['DOCUMENT_ROOT']='d:\inetpub\wwwroot\domain.com';
or
Code:
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']='d:\inetpub\wwwroot\domain.com';


I'm still not sure if there is no equivalent to $DOCUMENT_ROOT, so you may want to try out the following variables, just to see if they work:

  • $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['DOCUMENT_ROOT']
  • $HTTP_ENV_VARS['DOCUMENT_ROOT']

One last idea: try running a phpinfo(), then looking for what seems to be the document root, and then looking at the variable's name.

Sorted Very Happy

p.s. these didn't work:
  • $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['DOCUMENT_ROOT']
  • $HTTP_ENV_VARS['DOCUMENT_ROOT']
