I am having a problem defining these constants on my localhost:

define ('BASE_URI','C:\wamp\www\shop\\');
define ('BASE_URL','http://localhost/shop/htdocs/');
define ('MYSQL','BASE_URI/.mysql.inc.php');

How exactly do I define BASE_URL, and BASE_URL using wamp which is located i the C directory.

This gives me an 500 Internal Server Error.

I still get an error though, but now 404 not found - so i guess i have improved it..

My directory structure is like this:

Outside the web root directory is my mysql.inc.php:

// Database constants definition:
define ('DB_HOST','localhost');
define ('DB_USER','root');
define ('DB_PASSWORD','');
define ('DB_NAME','shop');

// Oprettelse af forbindelse:
$dbc = mysqli_connect(DB_HOST,DB_USER,DB_PASSWORD,DB_NAME);

// Definer carachter set:
mysqli_set_charset($dbc, 'utf8');

And then the site is inside a directory called htdocs.
Inside htdocs I have the following directory structure: only showing a few

-> includes (inside this I have a file called config.inc.php - which looks like this)
And this is where I want to create the constants:

define ('BASE_URI',''.$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'');
define ('BASE_URL','http://localhost/shop/htdocs/');
define ('MYSQL',BASE_URI.'mysql.inc.php');

And then in my index.php file, i want to include the config.inc.php - and establish the db connection, but i am screwing it up:


<?php require('./includes/config.inc.php'); ?>
<?php require(MYSQL); ?>
