Bug report #13703
projects with relative SVG files are taken into consideration by Server relative to qgis_mapserv.fcgi

If you’re using the QGIS project with styling based on SVG files using relative paths then you should know that the server considers the path relative to its qgis_mapserv.fcgi file (not to the qgs file). So, if you deploy on the server a project and the SVG files are not placed accordingly, the output images may not respect the Desktop styling. To ensure this doesn’t happen, you can simply copy the SVG files relative to the qgis_mapserv.fcgi. You can also create a symbolic link in the directory where the fcgi file resides that points to the directory containing the SVG files (on Linux/Unix).
It affects 2.8, latest stable (2.12) and master.
