There is an include_path for unix and an include_path for windows. They both
differ slightly but aren't of the same value that is being returned in the
php info page or the error that I am receiving.

This is the info displayed for my php.ini file. My OS is on G:.


This is the Include_path directory shown in the phpinfo page.

Thanks very much for your help on this. Let me know if you need me to post
anything else that might help.

Couple more stabs in the dark, then:

- Check there is only one entry for include_path.
- Make sure it's not commented out! (No ; at the start of the line.)

Also, just to be absolutely sure, can you post exactly what your phpinfo
shows for the php.ini setting?
