I have set up a file to authorize users to access a site. This auth file includes another file that contains DB connection information. The path to the db file is set in the cgi-bin/php.ini file.

When I test this on http, everything works fine (the include_path is correct). But when I try https, the include_path gets set, or reverts to, a default path.

I have found some possible solutions, such as using ini_set(), but have not been able to solve the problem. Wasn't sure if this was php or Apache.

Apache/1.3.28 (Unix)
PHP v 4.3.2

Any assistance with this is appreciated.
