Hi,I have a problem with a script I'm trying to access using AJAX. I'm trying to include another file in the script for the AJAX, but I keep getting errors saying there's no such file or directory. If I use an absolute path instead of a relative path it works.The AJAX script is located in this directory: C:\Inetpub\major\SkyPrice\Scripts\AJAX_Requests\CreateSkylight.phpThe file I'm trying to include is located here: C:\Inetpub\major\SkyPrice\Classes\WallPanel.phpHere are my include lines:

require_once('/SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');//This one works but I'd rather use a relative path//require_once("C:\\Inetpub\\major\\SkyPrice\\Classes\\WallPanel.php");

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?Thanks,jkloth

Try
require_once('../../SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');

or

require_once('../../../SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');

The leading slash makes this one an absolute path:require_once('/SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');
Well yes, that's true. I guess what I meant to say was hard coded. I use this exact statement in another script and it works properly. This should work though shouldn't it? All of my script files are in the SkyPrice directory.
Try
require_once('../../SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');

or

require_once('../../../SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');

Tried this, neither one works. Tried double dots and single dots. I believe proper syntax is single dots, since they work in other locations in my scripts. Edited by jkloth

Then just remove the first slash.
require_once('SkyPrice/Classes/WallPanel.php');

A single dot references the current directory, two dots reference the parent directory. Since the path to require is usually seen as a local path instead of an HTTP path, beginning the path with a slash on a Linux server tells it to look in the root of the filesystem, it's the same thing as beginning a path on Windows with C: or another drive letter.If you're trying to include this:C:\Inetpub\major\SkyPrice\Classes\WallPanel.phpfrom this:C:\Inetpub\major\SkyPrice\Scripts\AJAX_Requests\CreateSkylight.phpthen the relative path would be "..\..\Classes\WallPanel.php". You want to go up 2 levels to get to the SkyPrice directory, then down to the file.
