First are you talking about
I followed the PHP.ini instructions and it worked like a charm .
follow the steps for “Custom php.ini for a Single domain”
if that worked
all you need do make a directory to keep your includes in
and change line 494 of your php.ini in the cgi-bin
include_path = ".:/usr/local/php5/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php"
TO something like
include_path = “.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/home/(YOUR_USER_NAME_HERE)/php_includes”
Where did go wrong for you?
