Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45280] REQUEST_FILENAME is not full local filesystem path
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2008 09:56:18 GMT

The value of REQUEST_FILENAME depends upon context. It contains the full
physical path only, if the request has already been mapped to the file system
(-> directory context). That's not the case if you're using mod_rewrite in
per-server context – you're still on uri-level. The full physical path is
simply unknown in this state of processing.
To get the full physical path in server-context, you'll need an internal
sub-request (%LA-U or %LA-F). Prefixing with document_root is not a solution,
because this may not be the physical path at the end (think about aliases,
mod_userdir etc.).

May be the docs should state that more clearly, but not the quoted 1.3 ones.
