Apologise, for some reason my text hasn't posted. 

 

 

$tracking_file_location    =  "../dispatch-manager/logs/tracking_file.txt";
$tracking_file                 =  fopen($tracking_file_location, "r") or die("Unable to open file!");
$tracking_file_size        =  filesize($tracking_file_location);
$tracking_file_text        =  fread($tracking_file,$tracking_file_size);
fclose($tracking_file);

How would we know why the file is in another directory? We are not sat beside you. 

 

It would be helpful if could actually explain what it is you are trying to do. Just posting a few lines of code is not going to yield you any helpful replies. Also if you are getting any error messages post them in full.

Specify the exact path to the file:

 

$tracking_file_location    =  "/home/www/exact/path/to/dispatch-manager/logs/tracking_file.txt";

 

Relative file paths will always cause problems. Especially, if the current file is included in a file that is located in a different location.
