Thanks all, this worked fine

def self.path(path)
fileLine = path[1].strip
fileLine = fileLine.gsub(/\.\//, '')
fileLine = fileLine.gsub(/\/\./, '')
fileLine = fileLine.gsub(/\\/, '')
fileLine = fileLine.gsub(/\.{2,}/, '')
fileLine = fileLine.gsub(/\/{2,}/, '')
fileLine = "/srv/www/htdocs/" + fileLine
return fileLine
end

Is there a way of making it look prettier?

I'm trying to stop people using the address bar to access parts of the 
system the should not

Many thanks all

Stuart
