i have this code so to hinder from access when the url is directly type
i understand BASEPATH is a constant but can anyone give me idea on how to cofigure the basepath? do i need to create a constant folder and constant php file?

if (! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed')

is this what you mean?

define ('BASEPATH', 'calling from main');
include ('include.php');


if (! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');

another approach to the same idea

echo <<<EOT
