What's is an Absolute Path?

An absolute path is a directory specification that shows the way from the root of the file system to a specific file or directory.

An example of an absolute path on our servers is:

/home/joe/public_html/index.html

An absolute path starts at / (root) and ends at the location of where the specified file is located.
