How can I make sure that this path:
new Zend_Log_Writer_Stream(APPLICATION_PATH . '\logs\app.log')
works both on linux and on windows?
In Linux, the path separator is
/. In Windows, it is either
/. So just use forward slashes and you will be fine.
APPLICATION_PATH . '/logs/app.log'
You can also use
DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR constant instead of
Usually you’ll want to redefine it to have shorter name, like
define('DS', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR); $filename = APP . DS . 'logs' . DS . 'file.txt';
if you want to communicate two or more app of your site, this trick will serve you much
$ Document_root = realpath ( \ filter_input ( INPUT_SERVER , ' DOCUMENT_ROOT '));
this is to convert the route you back real path and then just have to navigate between directories with the DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR without worrying about the operating system installed on your machine or web server
Just realpath() is seems to be enough
