mysql error question

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Warning: require_once(/home/pk1998/public_html/includes/defines/path.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/pk1998/public_html/w/includes/setup.php on line 32

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/pk1998/public_html/includes/defines/path.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/pk1998/public_html/w/includes/setup.php on line 32

If I have my script on the main public_html directory, it works fine. Currently I have it setup in a sub-directory for testing (which causes the error).

It was a script I had someone code for me eons ago - when woolly mammoths roamed the earth. Here is the code in the path.php:

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://'.$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].'');
define('DIRECTORY', '/');
define('FILENAME_DEFAULT', 'index.php');
define('ICON_BULLET_PATH', HTTP_SERVER.DIRECTORY.'/images/icons/bullet/');

and in setup.php file, this code:

// Figure out where we're at
$docroot = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'];
// check if document-root ends with a '/'
if (substr($docroot,strlen($docroot)-1,1) != "/") {
$docroot = $docroot . "/";
And their installation instructions:

### everylist doc ###########

1. Set the database on includes/functions/database.php/
2. Run the everylist_sql.txt
3. Insert the pk user (so it will get #1 id, update the status id to 3 and privilege id to 2)
