Administration Pages

Recommended Posts



I have the administration pages up and running the css, super fish menus all working but i seem to be having a problem with connecting the the database. All procedures have been entered into the database.


when i click on any admin pages such as add product etc i get the following error


An error occurred in script '/home3/fournirb/public_html/trad/admin/add_other_products.php' on line 15:

require(includes/mysql.inc.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory


Mysql connection in admin config.php


if ($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']=='localhost') {
$debug = TRUE;
define ('BASE_URI', 'includes/');
define ('BASE_URL', 'www.fournirbeauty.co.uk/trad/admin/');
define ('MYSQL', BASE_URI . 'mysql.inc.php');
} else {
define ('BASE_URI', '/path/to/htdocs/folder/');
define ('BASE_URL', 'http://www.address.com/');
define ('MYSQL', '/path/to/mysql_connect.inc.php');

The REQUIRE can cause a fatal error, it means that the files cannot be found and the script will stall at that point and no longer run like it would if you have a INCLUDE. You need to check you have the mysql.inc.php script in the correct folder, check files on the server make sure the URI is correct and order of folders. That's usually what leads to this kind of error.
