Could anyone tell me how to use absolute roots - if that's the right way of
putting it - and the include command in PHP, or am I trying to do the

I want to be able to include a file called template.php located in a files
directory. I want this file to be included by several different files held
in different directories. I thought this could be acheived using
include("/file/template.php") but it doesn't seem to want to work.

Please could someone show me the error of my ways.

Many thanks in advance
