PHP Question

How can I get the current page's full URL on a Windows/IIS server?

I moved a WordPress installation to a new folder on a Windows/IIS server. I'm setting up 301 redirects in PHP, but it doesn't seem to be working. My post URLs have the following format:

http:://www.example.com/OLD_FOLDER/index.php/post-title/


I can't figure out how to grab the
/post-title/
part of the URL.

$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]
- which everyone seems to recommend - is returning an empty string.
$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]
is just returning
index.php
. Why is this, and how can I fix it?

Answer

Maybe, because you are under IIS,

$_SERVER['PATH_INFO']

is what you want, based on the URLs you used to explain.

For Apache, you'd use $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'].
