Multiple Site Manager—Can’t Get New Site Path Correct

I’m new to EE and not the most technical person on here by a long shot. But I can follow tutorials usually but I’m just having a heck of a time here.

We have one site up and running great on EE. We need a second site. Have installed the MultiSite Manager and created the second site. But we can not get that site to work. Keep getting this message: The system path does not appear to be set correctly. Please open your path.php file and correct the path.

Here is what our path.php file looks like (with URL omitted): Any help is greatly appreciated.


// ------------------------------------------------------

// ------------------------------------------------------
// Path to the directory containing your backend files

$system_path "../../existingsite.com/site_manager/";

// ------------------------------------------------------
// See user guide for more information
// ------------------------------------------------------
$site_name 'short site name';

$template_group "";
$template "";
$site_url "http://www.newsitename.info/html/";
$site_index "";
$site_404 "";
$global_vars = array(); // This array must be associative
