A couple of things: When a file (say dir1/foo.php) is included into another file (say dir2/foo.php), the source must be relative too the foo.php in dir2. Second perhaps the server does not have permission to execute the file? And possibly third does the file exist?

The brackets are not required, I have tested this myself before.


Now, back to the question at hand.

darksniperx, Try using the absolute path of that file.


$language = 'en';
include_once getcwd() . '/lang/Feed_' .$language. '.php';
