  1. Voilà. Problem solved. This happened because of an incorrect BASE_URI path in my config.ini.php file. Silly error on my part. Problem from - define ('BASE_URI', 'http://www.website.com/includes/'); define ('BASE_URL', 'http://www.website.com/'); Solved by - define ('BASE_URI', '/home/website/html/includes/'); define ('BASE_URL', 'http://www.website.com/'); Thank you again Jonathan and Larry for the help and information. Hopefully this post will help others.
  2. Thank you for the response Larry, I really appreciate it. Haha, yeah, it sounds exactly like I'm grasping at straws, until my brain hurts. ! Here's the thing - this works fine on my local WAMP setup, no errors. How can I fix the code error, if there is no code error? Doesn't this mean it has to be some kind of configuration problem?
  3. I am experimenting with a Linux GoDaddy VPS (apache 2.4.12 php5.5.27) and examples from this book. It is partially working. (I should add that I did not have this problem with WAMP on Win7). I understand Larry's suggestions of not developing online, however I wish to deal with it's drawbacks. My index.php page seems to pull all of the correct config.ini/mysql.ini/header.html/footer.html files and open up correctly with no errors. It appears to be connected to the database. However, when I attempt to submit a login, or a new "create account", the login.inc.php and register.php are not seeing the variables or functions (escape_data) from mysql.inc.php . I get a "Fatal error. Call to undefined function escape_data() in...". It's as if when secondary php files are ran (php files that are called after the initial index page) that the configuration php files aren't carried over into them. The variables and functions aren't recognized. I do not feel this is a code or call to function issue. I can re-write (re-define) the escape_data() function within the login.inc.php and then I get an undefined variable error, as if $dbc then does not exist. It's just not pulling the code over from mysql.inc.php. I feel this has something to do with the VPS configuration. ? Maybe the session configuration? Some akward security setting within GoDaddy? Any direction for information on something like this would be appreciated. Thanks!, - Carl
