Sorry, guys, but none of this works...
I get the document root which is wonderful but it misses the vhost root
So what I get both with realpath and $SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']is
/usr/local/www/apache22/data/images/file.gif or
and that, of course misses the main directory for this site which is

In /ptahhotep/file.php - the path for the image.gif is images/image.gif
In /ptahhotep/admin/another_file.php/ the path  for the image.gif is

But as I try different variations, I finally see that adding the root
directory name for the site does the trick.

Have I discovered something new here? :-)
