Question

Get file out of www directory with php

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?

Try reading <code>/srv/latest.tx</code>, e.g. <code>file_get_contents(‘/srv/latest.tx’);</code>Assuming the user apache is running as (most likely www-data) has access to read the file, it should work.

to answer to this question requires more details. <br>Do you have Su-Exec ? Does PHP run under mod_php or PHP-FPM? <br>also what chroot uses (if it uses) Apache as well as PHP. <br>http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.chmod.php <br> <br>BTW: <br>and please do not post again as an answer to “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/any-real-private-networking-solution” if you do not understand what I’m talking about.
