PowerCMS Error message

I get the following message when I try enter config.php on the site I have uploaded

Warning: require_once(../../../../../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/s53427/public_html/config.php on line 2

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../../../../../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/s53427/public_html/config.php on line 2

Firstly I assume that the config.php file is the log in to actually use the CMS system, I cant find anything in your documentation that says what exactly it is.

By the way your documentation leaves a lot to be desired, The sales blurb on your website says that no knowledge of PHP is required - but the opposite is true. The only documentation that was written with the non-specialist in mind is the powercms_globals.pdf, which gives the setting to be entered, followed with an example of what it should look like afterwards.

Hi Info,

You seem to be knee deep in levels ../../../../../WA_Globals
Your server will be looking for this file to provide the necessary connection to your website.

These are the connection details on one of my sites for logging-in
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once('../Connections/localhost.php'); ?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php" ); ?>

Hope this helps!

Clarification on log ins

Thank you for your reply David.

Please allow me to be a bit thick here!

Am I right in saying that those files
Helper_PHP.php
WA_Globals.php
WA_CMS.php
localhost.php

need to be in the same folder as the other files that make up the website, the about us, contact etc?

I'm also confused by localhost - my webspace provide has said that the path to my - MySQL server is just "localhost". He believes that this will open the heavens and clarity shall strike me like a snowball. Help me please - I stayed up all night trying to get this to work!!

Yes, you need all the files in the root folder. That is whichever extensions you are using. The example I have given you will not be correct for your application.

To make your example work in localhost you need to download and put onto your computer Wamp server. Just search for this on Google and it is self installing and pretty straight forward to install. If you have any problems, just get back to me on here!
Hope this helps.
