I attempt to call a resourceModel, however, I only recieve a white screen and the following error message within my log:

Warning: include(Namespace/ProjectName/Model/Mysql4/Projectname.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

This is how i'm calling the above:


This is how the resourceModel is defined in the config.xml:


And finally, this is the resourceModel itself:

class Cjponyparts_ProjectName_Model_Mysql4_ProjectName extends Mage_Core_Model_Mysql4_Abstract{
    function uploadData(){....}

The resourceModel is located at:


The only difference I see that could cause this error is that I have the resourceModel defined as like this "ProjectName.php" while it looks for something like this "Projectname.php". Is this the problem? How can I fix? Do resourceModels need to be defined as the second option?

  • Try Mage::getResourceModel('kitinventory/projectname') Mar 16, 2015 at 18:08
  • @R.S derp, that was the projectname initially before I removed it :D it should (and does) read 'projectname/projectname'. Mar 16, 2015 at 18:09

    Try change ProjectName.php to Projectname.php and update the class accordingly \ Mar 16, 2015 at 18:11

    or Mage::getResourceModel('kitinventory/projectName') Mar 16, 2015 at 18:11

if you take a look at the error message

Warning: include(Namespace/ProjectName/Model/Mysql4/Projectname.php): failed to open stream

Failed to open Projectname.php

Try change the class and file name to not be camel-case


class Cjponyparts_ProjectName_Model_Mysql4_Projectname extends Mage_Core_Model_Mysql4_Abstract{
    function uploadData(){....}


If you want to keep the name camel case try
