Actually, I found a different solution.
Since I know that the server structures are going to be identical from my development system to the production system (as designed by the network admin who built this whole thing), I tried doing the relative path using ../../var/logs
. Sure enough it works properly. Now, I don't have to worry about what system it's on.
Yeah, I know, it's not exactly the best way to do it for overall portability. But that's not the situation here, and it's not like this code is ever going to go out into the wild. It's strictly for this client, for use in just this system (as is always the wonderful part about writing code for GovCo).
