xt:Commerce & suPHP

After installing suPHP a few days ago, I had the first problem with a xt:Commerce installation. That’s what happened on a SuSE 10.0 system:

When trying to access the pages, it stayed blank and there were some wierd errors in the apache logfile:
[Mon Apr 02 16:44:48 2007] [error] [client x.x.x.x] PHP Fatal error: %v%v() [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: Failed opening required 'DIR_WS_INCLUDESfilenames.php' (include_path='/usr/share/php5') in /path/to/user/html/includes/application_top.php on line 57

Reason was found quite quick:
The include path only had the default path and didn’t include the webroots any longer : (

Solution: change config in /etc/php5/cli/php.ini .
include_path = "/usr/share/php5"
include_path = ".:/usr/share/php5"

. = Homedir of webroot
: = next path
