I had a local site I am developing work before my PC crashed. I have a new PC and have setup php 5.2.6 and now my function which used to work before does not work It returns the error:

PHP Notice: Undefined index: REQUEST_URI in C:\Nilesh\CenvetSite\custom\functions.php on line 6

Does anyone have any ideas whats going wrong?
function selfURL() {
		$s = empty($_SERVER["HTTPS"]) ? '' : ($_SERVER["HTTPS"] == "on") ? "s" : "";
		$protocol = strleft(strtolower($_SERVER["SERVER_PROTOCOL"]), "/").$s;
		$port = ($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] == "80") ? "" : (":".$_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"]);
		return $protocol."://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].$port.$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; 
	}
