I have installed PHP% in conjuction with Apache 2.2 under Windows SP2, for off-line testing purposes.

I am trying to switch from SSI include to PHP include, again for off-line testing.

The point where I need help is the path to the included file.

I have a file menu.inc, which resides in the root file. When including in file that already resides in the root file, then
<?php include 'menu.inc'; ?> works (I have tested it )

Now, I am trying to include the same file in a file that does not reside in the root directory, but a sub-sub directory. when I use
<?php include '/menu.inc'; ?>, it does not work.

I seems that it is something to do with relative path.

Any help will be appreciated.

include "/some.php";

Hello, there are two options depending on your configuration.
a) PHP tries to include from the doc root e.g. C:\apache\htdocs\some.php
b) PHP tries to include from the drive root e.g. C:\some.php

Consult your error log and turn error displaying on in your php.ini


error_reporting  =  E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
display_errors = On
