PHP file inclusion warning


Hello,

I have installed LAMP Server on Ubuntu 7.10. And I have edited the file available in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default, changing document root form /var/www to /home/guest/www and then I restarted the server and started executing the my PHP files, I got the following error/warning
Quote:
Warning: include(common/header.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/guest/www/index.php on line 1

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'common/header.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /home/guest/www/index.php on line 1

Warning: include(common/footer.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/guest/www/index.php on line 2

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'common/footer.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /home/guest/www/index.php on line 2
Files are available in the folder and I changed the permissions to 777, but still I am not able to execute. Please help me.

First changing a folders permission to 777 is never advisable...

is common/footer.php in the path given if not then correct the path is so then I would suspect that the web server Apache doesn't have permission to a parent folder /home/guest

PHP Warning

Hello,

Thank You for the reply. My www folder contains folders common, configure, pics, css and javascripts along with my index.php file. index.php file contains the code
Quote:
<?php include("common/header.php");?>
<?php include("common/footer.php");?>
. I have changed the permissions to 775, thanks for the advice. Still I am not able to execute my index.php. I am getting the same warnings.

are you sure that you have changed the permissions of the common directory?

The web server needs access permission for all parent directories on path /home/guest/www. I assume that 'guest' is a user's home directory (user guest), so you probably have to add user 'apache' to the 'guest' group, or make some sudo settings that have a similar effect.

Anyway, my advice would be to reset webroot to /var/html and rather create the 'guest' home directory within /var/html. In httpd.conf set up a virtual host with the guest home directory or one of it's subdirectories as the webroot for that given virtual host.
