File not found on website

Recommended Posts

Ysengrim

If I run my program on my computer it works

If I run it on my website it doesn't

The script is using the command "FileExists" for looking for a data-file in the same directory

on my computer the command works

on the website he's giving an error he can't find file

I uploaded both in same directory - like it was on my harddisk

command used : FileExists("data.txt")

I bet the workdir is not equal to the scriptdir when running in your website.

Try FileExists(@scriptdir & "\data.txt")

Thanks Jos !!!

It didn't work either

but I got to work with the @scriptdir you mentioned and after reading the helpfiles about it I made 2 messageboxen containing the

@scriptdir and the @workdir

use them on my computer harddisk they gave the results I expected

but after putting them on my website and they gave an unexpected result :

working dir = C:\Documents and Settings\MYNAME

script dir = C:\Documents and Settings\MYNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Contents IE5 ........

can somebody explain that or give me a better way to find a txt file to read from for my script? (in the same directory of the script)

thanks a lot
