PHP includes fine in one place but has error when moved under folders?
Posted 28 August 2006 - 12:21 PM
I have just started playing around with PHP includes and have tested it.
When I do it under something like my homepage, its fine. But when I start to create folders and place it under there, an error message keeps coming.
For example.. if I place <? include("/includes/foot.php") ?> in index.php it works fine.
If I create a folder, then copy and paste the exact some thing on a doc and save it under this new folder (so now its something like /about/index.php), an error comes up about something like not being able to open the stream or something.
I'm really sorry if this question has already been asked, but I dont really know what the term is so couldnt do a search.
Thanks in advance.

<?php // if you are trying to include from your root folder: include("./includes/foot.php"); // if you are trying to include from /about/index.php: include("../includes/foot.php"); ?>
hope this helps

<?php include realpath('/path/to/file.php'); ?>
