I'm getting a strange error on all of my pages for a site I'm building. The whole thing is failing on an include (which should only produce a warning if it fails, not a fatal error) with the error: "fatal error opening required file http://localhost/site1/includes/functions.php: Includes path (.;c:/phpdev/php/includes;c:/phpdev/php/classes)"

It's very strange. My include code is:

include("http://localhost/site1/includes/functions.php");

now, I'm not doing a require function here, so it should be a fatal error, and I beleive my include syntax is correct, so I've got no idea why my server is generating this error. Got any ideas?

well... apart from the fact that I'd [be very unfriendly to] every developer that presents me a http include [in real code]...

I'd guess that either
-the error isn't where you think it is - what line is your fatal error on? Same as the include
-your server has remote including turned off (and it should!)
-you meant to use a local include in the first place, and your server has remote including turned of.

You know what can happen when someone takes over the server you're including from? Or appears to be taking over the server you are including from? DNS spoofing is not unheard of.

So long,
TP

Edit: Added some friendly ness to this post.

I'm sorry, I didn't quite realise what I was doing...so...since I'm on a windows server, it should look more like

include("c:/phpdev/www/site1/includes/functions.php");

?

if "site1" is a virtual web/root then couldn't you use just "/includes/functions.php" and if it's not a virtual then "/site1/includes/functions.php" ?

yeah, that with the c:/ in it should work.

You could also consider getting there via a relative path dirname(__FILE__). '/../../site1/include' or something similar. (The grail does it that way, I believe)
