Sometimes an application may ask for an absolute path to a folder/file in your hosting account. Finding that can be hard – you often have to dig around on your host’s site or contact them for that info.
Here’s an easy way to do it: create a new .php file and upload this to the account.
$path = getcwd();
echo "Your absolute path is: ";
Then just navigate to that file in a web browser and it will display your absolute path.
