I have an index.php in root and a ‘includes’ folder containing header.php and footer.php.I included header and footer in index.php and it works fine but in header and footer I include some different files in config folder in root.
I know that I should use “../config/config.php” but it works with ‘config/config.php’.
I included header and footer in index.php and I should use path according to the index that I included to ???
what if I include one file in several folders ???
Try to use
__DIR__ it will give you the path compared to where your current file exist, also try to use
include_once instead of
DIR : The directory of the file. If used inside an include, the directory of the included file is returned. This is equivalent to
dirname(FILE). This directory name does not have a trailing slash
unless it is the root directory.
Include your file like this from within your header.php and footer.php:
do the same technique for other files
