Simple PHP Question

Here is what I have:

an include directory with the following:
style.php
header.php
footer.php

inside index.php source is the following:

<?php include("style.php"); ?>

<?php include("header.php"); ?>

<?php include("footer.php"); ?>

Only one that works is header.php, style.php and footer.php are uploaded.  Error I get is:

Warning: main(footer.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /xxx/about_more.php on line 81

Warning: main(footer.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /xxx/about_more.php on line 81

Warning: main(): Failed opening 'footer.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /xxx/about_more.php on line 81

Try putting the FULL path in your includes, e.g.:

<?php include('/home/username/includes/footer.php'); ?>

It looks like PHP may not be looking in the directory where you have your stuff.

I will try that but 1 out of the 3 work and they are all in the same locations with the same calls as above.

Bingo!  Don't ask me why, 1 worked and the 2 others did not as I had originally.  When I did what you recommended they all work with the full path.  Thanks!
