I have this code. This is the entire php file:
// read file & display. File passed in $_GET
$path = "../summsp/" . $_GET['file'];
echo get_file_contents($path);

I execute it like this:

I get a blank screen.

The directory structure is in the attached file. I cannot show you the file contents (pdf) because it is sensitive.

Why do I get a blank screen?
