I have a working site on a dedicated hosted linux box.
www.flattentheworld.com
I copied it to a godaddy shared hosted linux box.
This is the error I get.

      Warning: require_once(/var/chroot/home/content/16/7001316/html/main.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/16/7001316/html/accessioncorp/config.php on line 3

      Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/var/chroot/home/content/16/7001316/html/main.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/16/7001316/html/accessioncorp/config.php on line 3

I'm not a PHP programmer but I'm hoping to be able to move this site to the new host.
Am I even close? What can I do to make this work?


first two lines of index.php
<?php
require_once('config.php');



The config.php file
<?php
// the orginal line follows
// require_once('SystemLib/main.php');
// this is what I tried but I still get the above error.
require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']).'/main.php';

require_once('Smarty/Smarty.class.php');

define('ORDER_EMAIL_ADDRESS', 'tobyd@softdesigns.com');

define('ACS_ANY',      0);
define('ACS_USER',      128);
define('ACS_ADMIN',      255);

require_once('config_local.php');
require_once('config_pages.php');

require_once('class.User.php');

#require_once('Admin.php');
#require_once('User.php');
#require_once('Order.php');
#require_once('Home.php');

?>

Have you tried chmoding files to 755?

Does this file actually exist at this path?
/var/chroot/home/content/16/7001316/html/main.php

The config file is in a slightly different place:
/home/content/16/7001316/html/accessioncorp/config.php

Since this is a shared godaddy host I donn't belive I can go poking around on the server.
They do say on the control panel that the absolute hosting path is: /home/content/16/7001316/html

I'm assuming that main.php exists someplace as wordpress works on this host.

The 777 thing I donn't know what to do since I am limited to the hosting path.

On the hosting panel you should have fix file permissions or something simular. If you don't you can change permissions via file manager from panel or via ftp

Donn't mean to argue as I'm the one asking for help but what makes you think it is a permission problem?
If it is a permission problem for main.php I'm not going to have access to it as it is considered a shared system file, yes?

If it was a permission problem on config.php which I can get to would it open. It seems like it is opening as it finds the line number to error on.

This is where main.php should be right? It returns 404 which either means that it doesn't exsist or isn't word readable (or it has a redirect unless some criteria is met).
Also can you put
echo $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'];

Open in new window

after <?php and tell the output?

Thanks for the nudge. I examined the source computer and found a directory under /user/share/includes/SystemLib with the files referenced in the include.
I copied them to an includes folder I created under accessioncorp and adjusted the include path and it works now.
