Php: "../"

Hi Community,

I’ve been writing a pretty complex system with a lot of references to parent directories. I’ve found that I have to reference the ENTIRE path /username/domain.com/file.php for include functionality when working in subfolders and things like “…/file.php” won’t work. I do this all of the time on FreeBSD servers… is there something different in the format on Dreamhost?

ex: <? require_once("../file.php"); ?> doesnt work.

Thanks!

Actually, that does work just fine for me. I just did the following test:

file hello.php:

<? echo "Hello World"; ?>

stored at /home/myuser/domain.com/hello.php

and file test.php:

<? require_once("../hello.php"); ?>

stored at /home/myuser/domain.com/dir/test.php

Runs without error and prints “Hello World” to the screen.

Works fine for met to. Try chmod the included file to 777 to see if that’s where the error is
