[vox-tech] PHP Question: Includes and Variables

Here's the situation.
My script, page1.php, calls a script in another directory called
config.php via require_once. config.php declares several variables which
should be accessible in page1.php. For example:
echo "myVariable = $myVariable->daValue";
$myVariable->daValue = "Hello, World";
So when I execute page1.php, I should get:
myVariable = Hello, World
But I don't. Instead the variable is undefined. If I put the echo
command inside config.php, though, it displays properly.
I've confirmed that all permissions and ownerships and all that are the
same, and I can't find a configuration value in php.ini which might have
something to do with this. It's acting as though $myVariable is only
defined within the scope of config.php, but I have no idea why that would
be. It makes no sense to me at all.
Any suggestions besides taking a large sledgehammer to the server?
