there are some previous posts about this but none seem to resolve the issue...
trying to put all of my php includes in a common folder and use include_path to set a common path from any directory...
set include_path in .htacces, then found that that doesnt work for php run as CGI (dammit eh?)... then tried using a custom php.ini file since we cannot access our main php.ini file (correct?)... still, no lovin.
even set AllowOverride Options in .ini
general fomat used:
php_value include_path ".:/home/user/site_alias/inc/"
