Hello Johan.

Looks like you are trying to include files outside of your 
include_path settings as above.

To include a php file, it has to be within the paths set in 
the include_path directive.

Try changing your include path to the following:

include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php:/var/www/html/nubuilder/db'

see if that does the trick.
