  The paths that have ../ in them are making references to the parent directory, this is what the ../ means. So it is perfectly valid to have links to resources with the ../ in front of them. In the example you gave for this link:

<?php require_once('../Connections/localhost.php'); ?>

The ../ would indicate that the connections folder is not in the current folder, but one folder up. So if you had the page with this include in a sub directory in the site called subdir it would indicate that the connections folder is not in this subdir folder but instead is in the folder above it.

The trick to resolving errors that occur for the links like this is to determine if the path is correctly pointing to the file, if it is and you still get the error it indicates that the file has not been uploaded to that location on the live server.
