Real root, not URL root. You can add the path to URL root to your php ini php_include_path. I think you can do this with .htaccess if you're on apache. It would be something like: php_value php_include_path /root/httpd/virtualhosts/user/public_html That way, when you include() the file, the include function will look to the path specified above as a starting point for the path you're trying to include. Note: this isn't tested, but I think it would work.
