You seem to have this right Dave, but I suspect you
are attempting to run it locally thus the localhost
path. Loading your world from an online domain will
produce the right path. Place your php file in the same
directory as your world or use things like ../phppath/.
As for your other question about base path you can
create your own SFString field. That will do the trick.
Hope this helps,
