I know nothing of PHP coding and have bought a php membership program called aMember.  All I am trying to do is get each member's name to display on the top of each page.  The company says they use something called Am Lite in conjunction with their php code to call up the member name.  they gave me the folling instructions:


Here is example of usage

<?php // it should be first line on your page require_once '/home/myusername/public_html/amember/library/Am/Lite.php'; ?> 

...your code...

<?php if (Am_Lite::getInstance()->isLoggedIn()) : ?> Welcome <?= htmlspecialchars(Am_Lite::getInstance()->getName()  ) ?>!
<?php endif; ?>

....your code...

I have tried various variations of arranging the code on a php page - see attached - and nothing seems to work.  I get the following errors:


Warning: require_once(/public_html/amember/library/Am/Lite.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/tradeco/public_html/ts_main_1920/login_name_test.php on line 5

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/public_html/amember/library/Am/Lite.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/tradeco/public_html/ts_main_1920/login_name_test.php on line 5


Any help and or guidance would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance

I think the message should be clear to anybody who uses a computer: The file you're trying to include does not exist (or at least it can't be read).


Are you sure you got the path right? You're claiming the library script is in this folder:


Is it? I highly doubt that you have a folder called “public_html” in the root directory.


Also, your own script is under this folder:


That's a very different “public_html”. I think you actually want this one.
