Problem with Code Challenge 2/3

Hopefully someone can help me understand why my code won't pass. Every time I try to submit, the page throws back an error saying I'm not including the company.php file. Any suggestions?

Here's the question for reference:

There is a file located at htdocs/config/company.php on the server. We need to include that file to get access to some of information about the company. At the very top of the file below, before any of the HTML, include that company.php file using a relative server path.

about/leadership/index.php
<?php
  include('../../config/company.php');
?>
<html>
<head>
     <title>Leadership | Shirts 4 Mike</title>
</head>
<body>

    <h1>Leadership</h1>
    <p><strong>Owner:</strong> ????</p>
    <p><a href="/contact/">Contact</a></p>

</body>
</html>

There seems to be a problem with task 2 of this challenge.

I figured it out. There was an error with the "workdir" not being set on line 76. Something on the server I guess. I changed the include to "include('../../workdir/config/company.php')" and it worked. Thanks for looking into it!

../../config/company.php is the link right? where is your index.php file please?

The index.php is located in about/leadership/index.php. The company.php file is located in htdocs/config/company.php.
