The script of yours is buggy.
this is not the right forum to ask support questions.

Shall I post my configuration files? Just in case it might help with the 
reconstruction of that error...

Using include_once() does not make any difference.

What if you use include_once() instead of include() ?
Does it make any difference?

Now this is what happens: I include a .php-file for database access via ODBC. While I 
was trying to make things 'easier', I stumbled across a problem: Classes and functions 
declared in an included file seem to work at first glance, but when reloaded, the 
declaration fails: 

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class odbc_obj in E:Web-ProjekteTestodbc.php on line 5

If I move the declaration of the class into the index.php, the script complains about 
being unable to redeclare connexecute(). Reloading again after the error, the script 
works, but thereafter, it refuses again and so on and on.

--- odbc.php ---

$conn_id = odbc_pconnect ("TEST", "", "");
global $conn_id;

class odbc_obj {
    var $result;
    function set_rs ($res) {
        $this->result = $res;

    function out ($eingabe) {
        $retval = odbc_result($this->result,$eingabe);
        return $retval;

function ConnExecute($sql)
  global $conn_id,$did;
  $did = odbc_exec ($conn_id, $sql);

  $retval = new odbc_obj;
  $retval->set_rs ($did);
  return $retval;

--- index.php ---

$sql = "<some sql query string>";
$rs = ConnExecute($sql);
