Access a parent directory

Recommended Posts

I have some pages in a sub directory but I still want to acces a configuration in the parent directory. I also want to re-direct to a page in the parent. I thought    /..  but this is all the way back to the root. Yhis is a bit of the code.

include ("functions.inc");  //      /.functions.inc

if(.....)
{
header('Location: access.php');  //    /.access.php
exit;
}

Let's say you got a folder called "outside" that has in it a file called "outside_file.php" and has a folder in it called "inside". "inside" folder has a file called "some_file.php", and in it you want to include "outside_file.php". You'll do this:

[code]<?php
include("../outside_file.php");
?>[/code]

It's "../" which means parnet directory.
