(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)
require is identical to include except upon failure it will also produce a fatal
E_COMPILE_ERROR level error. In other words, it will halt the script whereas include only emits a warning (
E_WARNING) which allows the script to continue.
See the include documentation for how this works.
