Javascript Errors - Not included

Our host recently upgraded from PHP4 to PHP5 and after managing to fix most of the issues I cannot get the Javascript to work.

In the front end i get:
VarienForm is not defined
Translate is not defined

Seems that the Java files are not being included properly.

I had an issue with the php include function causing errors when using http:// instead of $_SERVER[’....’];

Could this be related?

Have tried all the CHMOD permission solutions found when searching the forums, sorry guys, didn’t work for me. And also have used the Head.php replacement file, which did fix the Admin menu errors but did nothing for the Frontend of the site and will cause errors again when updating through Connect Manager.

Any help would be much appreciated.
