I am sort of new to this but I thought I new what I was doing. I moved the escalConfig.php file out of the public_html directory for security reasons. I then changed the 4 files which had call lines require ("escalConfig.php") to require ("../blah/escalConfig.php"); When I tried to run this nothing works. But when I leave the config.php file in the public_html files everything works absolutely fine.
I also tried creating a seperate file for the passwords and installed a line in the config.php file require ("../blah/mysql_connect.php"); In the mysql_connect.php file I copied the variables that were in the working escalConfig.php file. That didn't work either.
There were no error messages just a blank white screen. I have worked with php before and a white screen usually in my short experience means something is typed wrong or the code is not functioning properly.
Any help would be great???
