@Amrit: You can include a file as many times as you want but I would suggest you to try include_once or required_once which take care of duplicate include.

By the way why you want to include same file twice?

Yes ,You can include same file more than once.But It creates a problem when a file have some functions declaration. Then error may come for already declared function in this file.

Yes you can include that many times you want, but here are some things to make sure of: (Including abc.PHP, the file names are case-sensitive)
