I have the documents at
/home/www/example.com/www running on Debian Squeeze.
/home/www/example.com/ www/ index.php php/ include_me.php
In the php.ini I’ve uncommented and changed to:
In a script index.php in www, I have
require_once("/php/include_me.php"). The output I am getting from PHP is:
Warning: require_once(/php/include_me.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/www/example.com/www/index.php on line 2Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/php/include_me.php' (include_path='.:/home/www/example.com') in /home/www/example.com/www/index.php on line 2
As you can see, the include-path is set correctly according to the error. But if I do
require_once("../php/include_me.php");, it works. Therefore, something has to be wrong with the include-path.
Does anyone know what I can do to fix it?
That is wrong (in your particular case). Right now you’ve told PHP to search for
include_me.php file in
/php/ folder (yep,
/php/ and not
/home/www/example.com/php/ as you expecting as you have provided absolute and not relative path).
Remove leading slash and enjoy:
