View Full Version : trying to bring a site onto a WAMP server

I would appreciate any help. I am a novice still, trying to bring a friend's PHP site onto my WAMP server.

I am getting error messages relating to what I think is defining my WEB ROOT and APP ROOT statements in my index file.
I think my WAMP server on Windows is configured correctly. I have an alias in Apache for the site.

My page code starts like this:

$APP_ROOT = "";
$TITLE = "";
$FILE = __FILE__;
#content begins here
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="557" bgcolor="#ffffff">
<td><img src="<?=$WEB_ROOT;?>images/spacer.gif" alt=""
etc etc

The browser shows :

Notice: Undefined variable: WEB_ROOT in D:\wamp\www\russell\index.php on line 13
Call Stack
# Time Memory Function Location
1 0.0002 141304 {main}( ) ..\index.php:0
images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="39" height="15" border="0"> ( ! ) Notice: Undefined variable: WEB_ROOT in D:\wamp\www\russell\index.php on line 14 Call Stack #TimeMemoryFunctionLocation 10.0002141304{main}( )..\index.php:0 etc,etc.

I do not know how or where to define my WEB_ROOT, which I guess is my first problem.

Unfortunately, like you, we haven't a clue what WEB_ROOT is. Creating it would be as simple as $WEB_ROOT = '';, but without knowing what it is, then it's tough to tell you what to declare it as. Getting rid of an error is one thing, but making it work is a completely different thing.
If you know what the system is, you can post that and someone that has used it may be able to give you an idea. I would presume you are either missing an inclusion here, or that the original site used something like auto_prepend_file to get additional includes into the script.
