Troubleshooting for a warning:[Web App from scratch series]

  • # April 26, 2013 at 11:05 am

    I am trying to follow [the Creating a Web App from Scratch series]( “the creating a Web App from scratch series”) ,I have no prior experience with PHP,I’v downloaded the source file and uploaded to a host just to see if it works for myself([Your text to link here…]( “site”))

    but the screen shows me this error:

    Warning: require_once(inc/FirePHPCore/FirePHP.class.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u265831516/public_html/site/common/base.php on line 13 Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘inc/FirePHPCore/FirePHP.class.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php’) in /home/u265831516/public_html/site/common/base.php on line 13

    Could anyone guide me through the right way?Did I upload the content in the wrong directory? Thanks in advance.

    @Nick01 I think you might have put the file in the wrong directory…Could you please check and tell us if you did?

    I’v uploaded the files in public_html(since all the content here is visible to public) and then I wanted a subdirectory called “site” so, public_html/site/ (here the downloaded file).
    here’s my filezilla screenshot:

    It’s looking for a file named `FirePHP.class.php` in your `/home/u265831516/public_html` `/site/inc/FirePHPCore/` directory. Does that file exist on your server?

    You sure @traq? The script causing the error is `/home/u265831516/public_html/site/common/base.php`, so it’s looking for `/home/u265831516/public_html/site/common/inc/FirePHPCore/FirePHP.class.php` unless I’m mistaken. Try:

    @traq The file FirePHP.class.php hasn’t been provided in the source code download file and isn’t present in /home/u265831516/public_html /site/inc/FirePHPCore/ Am I supposed to create one?

    @CrocoDillon The line exists in base.php. This is the code of [base.php]( “base.php”)

    I guess you could get a copy from

    Seeing including the constants doesn’t give a warning I guess my earlier statement was wrong.

    # April 27, 2013 at 6:58 am

    @traq ,@CrocoDillion The link worked like magic!

    But There’s a new warning:

    Connection failed: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user ‘db_user’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)

    I’m Guessing this is because no permission is granted to the database?
    The series aimed at creating a db in XAMPP,so I am not sure the same steps are supposed to be followed on a web host?

    # April 27, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    How you connect to your DB will depend on how your DB is set up. You should be able to get host/user/pass/etc. from your host.

    What caused that warning? my host doesn’t provide a MySQL database wizards* where permissions can be given to the database users I suppose? [Cpanel]( “host”)

    # April 28, 2013 at 6:25 am

    What do you have when you go to MySQL Databases?

    # April 28, 2013 at 8:03 am

    [MySQL Databases]( “MySQL Databases”)

    Tried to import the database and tables :

    [Error while importing from database created in XAMPP]( “Error while importing from database created in XAMPP”)

    I’v tried :

    Still it keeps giving me the Connection failed error.

    Probably best to wait for @traq‘s reply… but I’d say you’re trying to connect to localhost, try instead, in your DB connection script.

    # April 28, 2013 at 8:52 am

    If you meant instead of ‘localhost’ I should use ‘’, it still gives the same error:

    Access denied for user ‘u265831516_nick’@’localhost’ to database ‘u265831516_first’

    # April 28, 2013 at 10:35 am

    Does your webhost allow you to create new databases? Have you tried just using the database you do have?
