February 18, 2013 09:37PM
Hi

I'm setting out my file structure and database tables and was wondering if you could clarify something with regard to a paragraph on page 11 of the TUT 101 letter.

Please provide a SINGLE configuration page (includes/config.php) with your database and user information ... they must be included in a file include/functions.php. If you do make use of images, then put it in an images folder.

According to the letter as it stands there should be a file named "include" and another named "includes" - is this correct or just a typo?

@Shado77968239, it's not a typo. What it means is you should have a folder named includes and in this folder that's where you will have your include.php file as well as other files that are used as includes in your project. Am sure you will only need to work on this folder structure once you start working on your final project.

just to add something if you use include to reference your config file
Language: PHP
include("../config.php"); // page will start and show html part even if connection fail but require require("../config.php"); // stop everything from being procces till connection made
