    PHP - Configuration file?

    So, I have this code (not mine) that I'm trying to use on my site:

    PHP Code:

    The problem I'm having is, the way the file locations are set up don't work. When I FTP something into the site's hosting and then try to copy the url for the file location, I get something along the lines of "ftp://user@site.com/public_html/index.php" which won't work if I put it into the address bar. The url that does work is just "site.com/index.php" So what's happening is the code is searching for the file "index.php" in the wrong place. So, I redid the code to this (iStrip being the folder where the files are):

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    /*
    iStrip web comic publishing system - index (Main page view script)

        echo (
    varsubstring (L_DEBUG_TIMER,$stopwatch));
    }
    else
        
    generatepage ();
    ?>
    Which fixes most of the problems. However, this gets me an error of "no configuration file found" I guess my question is then: What do I need to change so it can find the configuration file?

    um, ftp://user@site.com/public_html/index.php = http://site.com/index.php. So I'm not sure I really see an issue with the original code. You shouldn't be playing with filepaths of prebuilt software unless you know exactly what to modify and why.

    Looks to me that if you have an issue with this from site.com/index.php, than the problem is likely one of these two constants: CFG_DIR_FILES or CFG_FILE_CONFIG.

    I thought so too, but when I tried it without changing anything, it came up with an error on every line referencing a file. :/ When I changed it, I only got a "configuration file not found error" (it does exist, I made sure of it)

    So what exactly should I do about the constants, then?

    Are you running this directly, or are you using it as a plugin to smarty? I don't and never will use smarty, so I can't help you if its supposed to be plugged in. The problem is simple, but the solution is not as simple.
    I'd assume that no modification should be required, and that it would integrate with the smarty api appropriately. Its quite possible that the issue you have is simply an installation issue of the above software potentially in the wrong location. I wouldn't expect any type of plugin to be placed directly under the document root.
    You may get better support by contacting the developers of the plugin directly.
