Hi again Neilo
Using the same connection script etc (in Dreamweaver) to the remote server, I built the same site first in html, then in php and then in asp - backing up and moving the previous versions each time. You were looking at the contents of the asp version, which came after the problematic php version!
I agree that the message is saying it can not find the file in question (menu.php) which contains the php code to be "included" in index.php which is the "calling" file. The asp version "finds" menu.asp without any problem but the php version seems to get lost ...
My guess is it has something to do with the way the path is interpreted or concatenated or something in the php version, but as I'm not sure how this is done I don't know what to do to fix it.
