I'm using MAMP installed on Yosemite 10.10.2 installed at /Applications/MAMP. Everything worked perfectly when I had the files in the web root which is /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/. I then created a subdirectory named gtstore (/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/gtstore) and moved all the files into that directory. The code shown is copy & pasted from the files.
I then made the edits shown in the Chapter 7, Server Setup "Using a Subdirectory" sidebar. This is the suggested change I made to .htaccess. The rest of the file was unchanged.
# For the subdirectory of the store:
Next I made changes to the index.php file (/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/gtstore/index.php):
// Require the configuration before any PHP code:
When I linked to the subdirectory from the web root I get a PHP error, and shown in the php_error.log:
php_error.log: [20-Mar-2015 16:33:15 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required './gtstore/includes/config.inc.php' (include_path='.:/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.6.2/lib/php') in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/gtstore/index.php on line 7
This is the where the error is occurring:
6. // Require the configuration before any PHP code:
I tried the .htaccess in two locations; /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess and /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/gtstore/.htaccess, but not in both locations at the same time.
I've been working on this all day, checking and double-checking my work. Am I missing something simple here? Thank you for any help! BTW, great book!
