Adding file from another directory using absolute path?

How do I go about adding an HTML document to link up if it is NOT in the same directory as the main page?? I have tried using the absolute path and got a 404 error. I also added the resume.hmtl file to the same directory and i still get the 404 error. Any thoughts? Thanks :D

Never mind I figured out the problem. Since I was in workspaces (which apparently operates on it's own server and in it's on world) the file was not seen as actually in workspaces even though I added it to the same directory. All I had to do was drag and drop the resume.hmtl file into workspaces and that fixed it.

Good find! Thanks for telling us how you solved it.

your solution did not work for me

relative path can be added by using PHP. First find root directory then add absolute path using . operator. Try to search on resources.
