It would be useful if we could see your folder structure. From what error are telling is that you do not have data.php and functions.php inside inc folder. Check path to them from index.php -> include("inc/data.php"); include("inc/functions.php")

As you can see data.php and functions.php are not inside inc folder. If you move them there you will fixed those issues.
