Hello,


I two scripts http://mysitedotcom/myscript/script1 and http://mysitedotcom/myscript/another_folder/script2/index.php
both files have their own database and admin folders

script1 has my header and footer layout.
and script2/index.php has the content.

Now I want to include the script2/index.php file into the script1 file, can this be done? And if yes then please let me know how.
Thanks

You can use the php require or include statements. Such as:

require('../script1');
That will go up a directory and include script1. If you don't want to mess with the relative paths you could use the document root or dirname(__FILE__) and then append the script's folder.

hi..

In script1:add the php code

include('../another_folder/script2/index.php');  
http://mysitedotcom/myscript/script1 you go up to http://mysitedotcom/myscript/ and from there you can access another_folder/script2/index.php
