I have configured my webserver (nginx) to have its document root out of its 
working path in "..\files" (please, note the two dots). When I request static 
files, it serves them without any problem. Anyway If I request a PHP file, the 
request it's not served because php-cgi.exe running as the fastCGI server al returns an error 400 code.

If I user absolute paths it works. Also, if I move the "..\files" folder to 
"./files" (please, note the only one dot) and I change the document root to 
reflect that new relative path.

So It looks that relative paths with two dots are not getting resolved by php-
cgi.exe as fastCGI server.

I have the same problem since months. I would even pay money to get this bug fixed. So far you can "solve" it by using mklink.

mklink /J files ..\files

To clarify: in nginx.conf you have

    root: ../files

and in php.ini you have set doc_root to the absolute path of that
root?  This works for me; either the issue has been fixed in the
meantime, or I'm missing something.  Please clarify.
