...and then Gregory Barker said... % % Hi all, Hello! % % I'm trying include .php files which reside in alternative directories or % sub-directories. Such as a file which reside in www/chat/page.php, and for % this page I would like to include a file which resides in www/forum/include/ That can definitely be done. % % I've tried the following which just results in a error: % include '/forum/include/test.php'; aqnd multiple variations of it. Ah, but you're using the website-based path instead of the actual path in the filesystem. You're not including a URL, but a file, so you should spell it out. % % How do I get around this problem? The simplest way to start is to just give the full path: include /path/to/site/www/forum/include/test.php ; although that begins to be cumbersome once you start including lots of stuff from here and there. You might simplify it a bit and just include $_SERVER[DOCUMENT_ROOT]/forum/include/test.php ; to make your code reusable in any web site dir, since the variable will expand to whatever the doc root is (like /path/to/site/www). You might want to be even more general, though, and pull something from the parent directory; you might use $currdir = getcwd() ; include $currdir . "/../parentdirfile.php" ; to do that. As always, RTFM. See "Directory functions" and "Filesystem functions" for starters on this type of task. % % Greg HTH & HAND :-D -- David T-G * It's easier to fight for one's principles (play) [EMAIL PROTECTED] * than to live up to them. -- fortune cookie (work) [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.justpickone.org/davidtg/ Shpx gur Pbzzhavpngvbaf Qrprapl Npg!
