using the require function

Postby Ch3my » 11. July 2005 11:18

Code: Select all
<?php
     require($_server["document_root"]."/config/db_config.php");
     $connection = mysql_connect($bd_host, $db_user, $db_password) or die("error connecting");
     echo "connection made";
     ?>


Thats my code and i'm trying to use an external php file with the connection info to connect to mysql. the folder config exists within the htdocs folder but i get this error msg

Warning: main(/config/db_config.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\apachefriends\xampp\htdocs\test2.php on line 2

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/config/db_config.php' (include_path='.;c:\apachefriends\xampp\php\pear\') in C:\apachefriends\xampp\htdocs\test2.php on line 2
