grab details about server and page

Hi

I have url's like the following and I want to break them into bits to then make links/labels etc

What do I need to grab ALL the details from a URL made like this

http://s1234:7777/webapp/eforms/abandoned-vehicles.php
IE Address / port / path / current page

Thanks
Neil

http://uk2.php.net/manual/en/function.parse-url.php

<?php
$url = 'http://username:password@hostname/path?arg=value#anchor';

print_r(parse_url($url));

echo parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH);
?>  

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [scheme] => http
    [host] => hostname
    [user] => username
    [pass] => password
    [path] => /path
    [query] => arg=value
    [fragment] => anchor
)

query - after the question mark ?

sorry

just realised that doesn't actually grab the current full url first, any ideas how to get that?

Well that's a lore more difficult unfortunately.

You can normally get the full page request by using something along the lines of.

$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; But I don't think that will include any port usage etc.

You could use a combination of

$_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'];
$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];
$_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'];
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

Maybe something along the lines of

"http://" . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . ":" . $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] . "/" . $SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
