I am trying to import Joomla CMS to a custom PHP script by this :
define( '_JEXEC', 1 ); define( 'JPATH_BASE', realpath(dirname(__FILE__).'/' )); require_once ( JPATH_BASE .'/includes/defines.php' ); require_once ( JPATH_BASE .'/includes/framework.php' ); $app = JFactory::getApplication('site');
But this only seems to work when the PHP script is placed in the root directory of the Joomla installation. If I move the script to some other directory, it throws the following error:
Warning: require_once(C:\xampp\htdocs\newfolder/includes/defines.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\newfolder\index.php on line 56 Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'C:\xampp\htdocs\newfolder/includes/defines.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\newfolder\index.php on line 56
I am testing on Xampp. In my case, Joomla is installed in the root directory "htdocs" (http://localhost) and the PHP script is placed inside a directory called newfolder (http://localhost/newfolder/index.php).
Help would be appreciated.
