chdir(dirname(__FILE__)): error

chdir(dirname(__FILE__)): error

I am getting two errors on http://loyalneighbor.com/inducteecat_detail.php?catid=4 The error is coming from code in a .dwt template.

One error is "Warning: mysql_select_db() expects parameter 2 to be resource, null given in /home/content/05/11651305/html/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php on line 3"

Line 3 the WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php is "chdir(dirname(__FILE__)):"

The other error is probably related. How can I fix this?

This means the connection that the cms is using isn't on the page. You probably just have to add the require_once() to add the connection file that the cms uses. If I had a copy of the page giving the error I could be more precise.

Try adding this to the top of the inducteecat_detail.php page:

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

Recordset and server code on a template isn't automatically moved to the pages using the template... so you may need to move more of the code from the template onto the page before it will function properly as well.

Adding that code helped a little, there are no errors.

The base content was created through Data Assist. When I opened the page with no templates applied, it all looks fine. I then applied the menu.dwt template to the page. All I see now is a partial menu and to content that was created and working from Data Assist. You have all the files already. See this page: http://loyalneighbor.com/inducteecat_detail.php?catid=4

I believe this is because of the other server side code on the template page that isn't on the page itself. You are going to have to manually move that code to the pages as you apply the template because dreamweaver won't do that for you.

Have I messed something up? When I try to update the server behavior connections I am seeing multiple versions of database names that are all pointing to the same tables, I guess I would expect three, one for the standard mysql database connection, another a dynamic MySQLi and another for dynamic MySQLdi. But see attached. All those connection type are all pointing to the same database and the same tables. Should I just keep the PowerCMSConnection types?

I also tried to update all the server behaviors, but I am still getting an error on /WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php but just a different line. All the servers behaviors look ok, no red warning flags. Yet I still am getting an error. (see http://loyalneighbor.com/inducteecat_detail.php?catid=4). I can tell the connection the PowerCMS is problematic.

Keep all of the connections. They are fine.

The issue now is that you have required the CMS include file twice on the same page.

If you attach a copy of inducteecat_detail.php I can look at where it is repeated and suggest a fix.

Is the attached error related to what you think is happening? WA_CMS.php is the folder, but Dreamweaver is not seeing it.
