Not quite, but interesting option. This would be fine on my local
intranet, if needed; but I don't think this would be allowed on a
virtual hosted site.

Actually, my problem is to use a header.php (for example) in pages in
the webroot directory or any directory within (or under) webroot:

/ <---- webroot
   /more files

I have the header.php file in /lib .
If I put include dirname(_FILE_)."/lib/header.php"; in a file under
/site1, the header is displayed.
If I put the same include statement in a file under /site1/files, the
header is not displayed; if I change the include to
..."/../lib/header.php"; it then works.
I want to be able to point to the include to the same file in the same
directory without having to change the include directive.
