error message, that contain foloving information:

Warning: Failed opening 'textdb_v2.inc.php' for inclusion 
(include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in 
/home/samcom/public_html/public/messageboard2/add.php on line 5

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: format_field() in 
/home/samcom/public_html/public/messageboard2/add.php on line 11
