Getting error code when I try to add a book title and description.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function request() in /home/ubuntu/workspace/procedures/addBook.php on line 4 Call Stack: 0.0003 237272 1. {main}() /home/ubuntu/workspace/procedures/addBook.php:0

require_once__DIR__ . '/../inc/bootstrap.php';

$bookTitle = request()->get('title');
$bookDescription = request()->get('description');

try {
    $newBook = addBook($bookTitle, $bookDescription);

    $response = \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::create(null, \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::HTTP_FOUND, ['Location' => '/books.php']);
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    $response = \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::create(null, \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::HTTP_FOUND, ['Location' => '/add.php']);

You have the magic method attached with require_once. It should be:

require_once __DIR__ . '/../inc/bootstrap.php';
