I'm not sure there are flags needed with the include_path.

In any case, this link gives 2 ways of doing... 1 through the CONF and the second at runtime in your PHP code.

include_path:
Specifies a list of directories where the require(), include(), fopen(), file(), readfile() and file_get_contents() functions look for files. The format is like the system's PATH environment variable: a list of directories separated with a colon in Unix or semicolon in Windows.

Example H.1. Unix include_path
include_path=".:/php/includes"

Example H.2. Windows include_path
include_path=".;c:\php\includes"

Using a . in the include path allows for relative includes as it means the current directory.

So it's essential to set the path to get PHP to work properly?

I think ,If you dont set it up, you have  to specify paths in your include statements to make it work.

This is the only difference:

With: include("functions.php");
Without" include("..\..\functions.php")
