Your opinion needed: Include virtual with IDIOTIC absolute path
Posted on 2004-09-28
I am having an argument with the help desk of my Web hosting server.
The guy insists that I have to use a path like this:
The stupid part being "/btslmtrad2.datasecure.net_non_ssl/niveau-b"
I am in the process of switching servers for a supposedly newer (read "better") server. On my old server, they created pointers (or root directories) for my five web sites. The way I included files was like this:
The "includes" folder being located in the root directory of each web site
This worked perfectly and had the advantage of also working on my local version of IIS where I sometimes modify my files.
Now with the new server, I have to use a HUGE path that I must add onto every include command in my sites.
I have about 12 000 pages in five web sites. I don't see how this can be the way things are done correctly.
There must be a way for my new server to specify that my root folders are indeed my ROOT folders for the include virtuals of each Web site.
Am I COMPLETELY out to lunch?
