include file paths when going from testing to live server

I have developed an ecommerece site. The site is all developed and is working great in my xampp php testing server. All the test transactions are working great! I am at the last step of putting the ecommerece site online. I have a lot of files including the vidal files that ecart 5 has made for me when I intergrated my merchant account and payment gateway into ecart. I have all the files on my computer and they are working great on the test server. I used one of my free hosting accounts so I could test the site online before I buy the hosting package. I am using a linux account which I understand is best for php files. I uploaded all my files from my site. I was told to rename my home home page "home.php" to "index.php" on the linux godaddy server. I went to the domain name to check out the site and I got this error code and warning message.

"Warning: require_once(../WA_eCart/rvproductsnow_PHP.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/s/w/a/swaney777/html/index.php on line 3

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../WA_eCart/rvproductsnow_PHP.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/s/w/a/swaney777/html/index.php on line 3"

Im really not sure what to do because the site works great on the xampp php testing server but when I put the site on my linux godaddy hosting account I get that error message. I contacted godaddy to see if I had to add somthing my my hosting account or do somthing with it to fix the problem but godaddy said the problem is with in my site. Im guising the problem is within my ecart 5 code becasue it uses the WA_ecart file in the error and warning message. I would really appreciate some help. My domain name is
