Hi, I have next dir tree:
/www/mysite : -index.php -.htaccess

/www/mysite/public_html/Views : -home.php

/www/mysite/public_html/Scripts : -functions.php

How can I call a function from home.php. I tried <?php myFunction(); ?> but it doesn't work. I have imported functions.php to index.php, is it correct?
Thank you :D

    This is not part of Slim itself, you would need to include that file at the top of index.php in order to make use of the functions.

    Hi, I include the file at the top of index.php but it doesn't work.

    include "var/www/mysite/public_html/Scripts/Php/passwordHash.php";

    require 'Slim/Slim.php';

    $projectDir = '/var/www/mysite/public_html';

    $app = new \Slim\Slim(array(
        'templates.path' => '/var/www/mysite/public_html/Views'

    require "$projectDir/routes.php";
    require "$projectDir/includes.php";


    If I open the file where I call the function an error appears in console:
    GET http://localhost/mysite/pass 500 (Internal Server Error)

    But if I omit the function calling, this error doesn't appear.
    What I'm doing wrong? Thank you
