dirname(), rather than '..'.
       4.) There are double underscores around FILE.  The same is
true with LINE, FUNCTION, etc.
5.) dirname() gives you the full path on disk, not the URL. Usually you can
just remove the document root path to get the URL. This could be in
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] but you can't rely on that between servers or when
the config changes.

        6.) When used in conjunction with realpath()[1], it will
resolve the absolute local pathname.

    ^1: http://php.net/realpath

that's the way i do it, for example

require_once realpath( dirname(__FILE__) . '/lib/LibAllTests.php' );

also I often use set_include_path to ensure everything works throughout, it's a lot simpler for require/includes

set_include_path( get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . realpath( dirname(__FILE__) . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR ) );

for example.. then all subsequent requires will be:

require_once 'Folder/file.php';
