file_exists() function returns false on the relative path to the file, which is REALLY exists. But its working well if the path is absolute.
code sample:

$filename = "./template/sub/install.txt";
if (!file_exists($filename))
{
 $fd = fopen ($filename, "r");
 $contents = fread ($fd, filesize ($filename));
 fclose ($fd);

 die("Error - file $filename does not exist.\n $contents");
}

try it, and marvel.
why?
PS In the documentation say nothing about types of path.
