Get file out of www directory with php

April 11, 2014 2.5k views
I am working on a control panel for a game server and hence keeping config files in the www directory is the worst thing I could probably do. I need to access a file called latest.tx in /srv/ So, how do I do it?

to answer to this question requires more details.
Do you have Su-Exec ? Does PHP run under mod_php or PHP-FPM?
also what chroot uses (if it uses) Apache as well as PHP.

and please do not post again as an answer to "" if you do not understand what I'm talking about.
Try reading /srv/latest.tx, e.g. file_get_contents('/srv/latest.tx');Assuming the user apache is running as (most likely www-data) has access to read the file, it should work.
