Based on your include path does the script exist in any of these locations
on your server?

=> /var/www/html/addrbk/Connections/addrbk.php or
=> /php/includes/Connections/addrbk.php
=> /usr/share/pear/Connections/addrbk.php

If not then that's your problem, else you need to start looking at
file/directory permissions...

Your include_path setting in php.ini tells php where to look for scripts if
a non absolute path is specified on a include/require statement. In your
case it will first look in the including script's directory, then the
directory /php/includes then the directory /usr/share/pear...

Subject: [PHP-DB] Fatal error message

I get the following when  loading a php file created by Dreamweaver MX using
MySQL database and php.

Fatal error: Failed opening required 'Connections/addrbk.php'
(include_path='.:/php/includes:/usr/share/pear') in
/var/www/html/addrbk/frmAddr.php on line 1

For the include_path I've used include_path = ".:/php/includes" and
still get the same error.  I'm not too sure what this path is supposed to
be pointing to.  Can someone enlighten me on this?

setup info:
MySQL is on a Linux 7.3 server
PHP is on the same server

Dreamweaver MX is on Windows 2000.
Everything work fine as for as creating the form, just when try to run it I
get the message.  I should mentioned I just copied the file created to the
linux location where the files are supposed to be.
