PHP Subdirectory Configuration

PHP does not recognize or insert include files

Solution is to:

# vi /etc/php.ini

Modify line:

include_path = “./usr/share/php:/home/httpd/php”

:wq

Above ensures that path php is used to locate .php files. This is recommended as it prevents security breaches.

In the main.php in your web pages, put:

<? php

include (“common_routines.php”);

The file will be correctly included.

To prevent security breaches in PHP, ensure that all your scripts are put in a path that is not within the Apache directory tree.
