Root-relative links

File name is index.php. Located in about/leadership subfolder. Web address is localhost/about/leadership/index.php.

I had "/index.php" as the answer but it did not work. I thought "/" was to let the server to start from the root and look down to the index.php in the different folders.

Whats going?

It thought that too...

Could not open input file: about/leadership/index.php

<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>```

This is the result I got.  It started with ```<a href="contact/">Contact</a>``` .  I added the "/" to the front of contact first.

This code passed all three questions.

<?php
    include("../../config/company.php");
?>

<html>
<head>
     <title>Leadership | Shirts 4 Mike</title>
</head>
<body>

    <h1>Leadership</h1>
    <p><strong>Owner:</strong><?php echo " ".$owner;?></p>
    <p><a href="/contact/">Contact</a></p>

</body>
