Hi All,

I want to know how to execute a php file from another file.

I just don't want to use INCLUDE('file.php') function because i'll have problems with paths.

So, I just want to RUN it not CALL it or include it.



EXECUTE 'www.mysite.com/file.php';

my cotent...


Thanks in advance.

I think you should work on making your paths issue work correctly. For example use full paths as a variable.


include "$path/file.php";

Use a full location that way it will be correct no matther where within the "pyramid" your page is located.

Hope this helps.
