    Sounds like a puzzling folder structure.

    If you have your ZenCart in a folder - - say "shop"

    Try this and adjust for the folder name where you do have ZenCart installed

    Code:
    require('shop/includes/application_top.php');

    Zen cart is installed at root and my new folder is also placed at the root.
    I'm also confused why this error comes if i remove '../' before the folder path.
    I'm trying to fix this error.

    Okay, if your script is stuffed into another folder, then yes you'll need to use the "../" to get it to load.

    As for why your json script breaks, that's impossible to know without having a complete copy of your script and knowing what exactly it's trying to do.
    Maybe you should turn on PHP error reporting and see what errors are being encountered by your script?

    Dr. Byte, i want to store new data into the database using $db->Execute function.

    Is there any specific file i can include at the top to access this function?

    PHP Code:

    Code:
    require('../admin/includes/functions/database.php');
    
    if ($_POST['submit_personal']) {
    	/* First Name validations Start */
    	if (empty($_POST['firstname'])) {
    		$message['status'] = false;
    		$message['position'] = 'firstname';
    	    $message['message'] = ' Enter first name...';	
    	    echo json_encode($message);
    	}
    	else if (!preg_match("#^[-A-Za-z' ]*$#",$_POST['firstname'])) {
    	  	$message['status'] = false;
    		$message['position'] = 'firstname';
    	   	$message['message'] = ' Not a valid first name...';
    	   	echo json_encode($message);
    	}
    	/* First Name validations End */
    
    	else {
    	
    		$query = "INSERT INTO my_table (expert_id, 
    												 expert_firstname
    												 ) 
    	
    		VALUES ('NULL', 
    												 '".zen_db_prepare_input($_POST['firstname'])."'						 )" ;
    			
    	
    		mysql_query($query);
    		$_SESSION['expert_id'] = zen_db_insert_id();
    		$message['status'] = true;
    		$message['message'] = 'Your personal data is successfully added';
    		echo json_encode($message);
    	}
    }
    This code works fine but if i include require('../includes/application_top.php'); at the top the script stops working.

    You can't re-load that database.php file if you've already loaded application_top. You'll need to remove that line.
    And, if this is all intended to be admin-side, then you should be loading the *admin* application_top, not the storefront one.

    Default Re: Can't include catalog functions in seperate PHP file.

    Dr. Byte i have found one problem when i include
    require('../includes/application_top.php');

    That AJAX stops working, whatever i send to JS file using echo command nothing appears on JS file.

    I'm using JQUERY as shown:

    success: function(response, status){
    alert(response.length);
    }

    The length received is 0 but if i remove the application_top.php file i receive 167 bytes in response variable from PHP script.

    Do you think there is any problem with application_top.php which hinders AJAX Call back?

    P.S: I'm working on Store end not Admin end.

    Using application top is appropriate and much safer than trying to include functions independently of their context.

    However, to do so your admin ajax handler would need to be in your admin's root folder. From your path names, it looks as though you have it in a folder sitting alongside the place it needs to be.
