Sorry about my remark.

If you create a page like cnewbill said, you can see all of environmental
variables, server variables, etc... that PHP defines.

Also, as cynic said check out the documentation at

Hopefully you can get it to work...

Ouch Andy, that seemed pretty harsh.

Anyways,  do you have a page up I can look at with phpinfo() in it?  If not just make 
a quick page like so

Michael, I think you should devote some time to read the PHP documentation. You're 
trying to make orange juice from apples. That won't work.

Also, next time you think you've found a bug, please check that it's not a PEBKAC.

Last, give only accurate, and TRUE!!! info in bug reports. I could easily see that 
your bug report was bogus, but with something more complicated or subtle, your claim 
that it works on other machines could mislead a developer, and cost them a lot of 
their time. I'm sure that would not be your goal.

Andi, I didn't get your remark about Linux. The behavior he was seeing is completely 
platform independent.

I can't help you anymore.  This is totally bogus.

The linux thing was a joke, because nothing like this would happen with linux.

If i replace $SCRIPT_FILENAME with $HTTP_SERVER_VARS["SCRIPT_NAME"] the dirname 
function only returns the path from the inet_root but not from the harddrive root.

if i type in the whole path manualy and the inclusion woks, i see that


is also empty... so my whole project could not work at my server...

I think its a general configuration problem, but what sholud i do?

"--By the way, get Linux." -> later... i have no experience with Linux

Sorry about that...


if that doesn't work, I am stumped.
