[vox-tech] PHP Question: Includes and Variables

Here's the situation.

My script, page1.php, calls a script in another directory called
config.php via require_once.  config.php declares several variables which
should be accessible in page1.php.  For example:




echo "myVariable = $myVariable->daValue";



$myVariable->daValue = "Hello, World";


So when I execute page1.php, I should get:

myVariable = Hello, World

But I don't.  Instead the variable is undefined.  If I put the echo
command inside config.php, though, it displays properly.

I've confirmed that all permissions and ownerships and all that are the
same, and I can't find a configuration value in php.ini which might have
something to do with this.  It's acting as though $myVariable is only
defined within the scope of config.php, but I have no idea why that would
be.  It makes no sense to me at all.

Any suggestions besides taking a large sledgehammer to the server?
