Just use $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']; in your include: <?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/path/to/file.htm'); ?> Maximillian Von Schwanekamp Websites for Profitable Microbusiness NeptuneWebworks.com voice: 541-302-1438 fax: 208-730-6504 -----Original Message----- From: Diane Soini [mailto:dianesoini at earthlink.net] Sent: Wednesday, February 25, 2004 6:00 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] stupid php include question I'm sorry. I'm a php novice. I checked php.net but the answer was not apparent to me there. When you use SSI you can include a file using / as the root level. Doesn't seem to work for php. How the heck do you do the same? Example SSI: <!--#include virtual="/path/to/file.html" --> Sorry. Diane *** Don't be afraid to try something new. An amateur built the ark.
