Hi Deidra,

You have to add the directory that contains the files you wish to include to
the php.ini file.
There is a section for paths and directories in there:

; Paths and Directories ;

; UNIX: "/path1:/path2"  
;include_path = ".:/php/includes"
; Windows: "\\path1;\\path2"
;include_path = ".;c:\\php\\includes;c:\\inetpub\\wwwroot\\"

Once you add the path, it should work.

Subject: [nycphp-talk] php include file question


I'm breaking up my html site into includes (header, copyright, etc.).
Within the HTML documents that call the include files, I have the
appropriate php tags (i.e. <? include("copyright.html"); ?> . All of the
includes (i.e. copyright.html) are sitting in the same directory as my
html pages (i.e. index.html). PHP is installed.

So, why, no matter what I do, don't the include files parse into my
document? I have tried to changed the include extensions from .html to
php to .inc. None parse. Most of my includes contain basic HTML (no php)
like <p>Copyright &copy; 2003. All Rights Reserved.</p>.

Am I doing something wrong? Or does my technician need to change something
in the server configuration (if so what)?
