hello -

im trying to test if uri string = url {

do this ....

}

here is the code
<?php if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == 'http://localhost/wasabiii.dev/index.php') { ?>
<a href="lang/de/index.php" title="German"  />Deutsch</a>

Open in new window


else do this
<?php } else {?>
<a href="../lang/de/index.php" title="German"  />Deutsch</a>
<?php }?>

Open in new window


the purpose of this logic is so that if its in the main domain it will be redirected to the correct path. same as if in a sub domain hence the ../

what it does not do is capture the url and perform the requested process.

Notice that $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] gives you the URI that was given to the server in order to access that particular page. In this case, it can be several things, like:
'http://localhost/wasabiii.dev/index.php'
'/index.php'
'../index.php'

You can determine what's going on if you place this before your 'if' clause:
print_r($_SERVER);

Open in new window

This will show you all the information you need to solve your problem.
