Thanks for the replies, I thought it might be a doc route issue, I
presume the doc route is this section of code:

        define('APP_DIR', 'app');
        define('DS', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);
        define('ROOT', dirname(__FILE__));

        define('WEBROOT_DIR', 'webroot');
        define('WWW_ROOT', ROOT . DS . APP_DIR . DS . WEBROOT_DIR . DS);

Does that look right if the site is in a sub-folder off the route? At
the moment I can't access any parts of the site (internal server error
on everything). I'm going to take a closer look around the clients
control panel and see if he's missed the error logs.

Thanks for the help so far.
