Showing results for tags 'base_url'.
I am finalizing the coding from Chapter 3 and cannot get the Account and Admin drop downs to display properly. One possible cause may be that I haven't correctly configured the BASE_URI and BASE_URL settings in the config file. Is there a quick way to check to see that I have configured these properly? Note: I can successfully connect to the DB, and the $_SESSION['user_id'] is set. Thanks!
I have been reading through all the URI based posts but I still can’t get the Coffee site example working on my local machine. I have my site located here: C:\apache\htdocs\eCom01\ I have the following setup in my config.php file: define('BASE_URI','C:/apache/htdocs/eCom01/'); define('BASE_URL','http://localhost:8080/ecom01/'); define('MYSQL','includes/mysql.inc.php'); When I view http://localhost:8080/ecom01/shop.php all images display and data is being pulled from the database. Here’s what the relative links look on this shop.php file: require('./includes/config.php'); include('./includes/header.html'); require(MYSQL); Inside my header.html file I have tried to setup the links 2 different ways: <li><a href="/shop/coffee/">Coffee</a></li> <li><a href="./shop/goodies/">Goodies</a></li> When I click the Coffee link, I get a NOT FOUND error (The requested URL /shop/coffee/ was not found on this server.) Somehow it is dropping the “/eCom01/” folder… When I click the Goodies link, the page displays all the content from the database, but does not display the css file or any of the pictures. I have been trying to trouble shoot this, but cannot come up with a fix. I have tried defining the BASE_URI and BASE_URL to many different values, but no matter what I set those to, I get the same results. I also added an echo $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] ; command on the shop.php file. This always displays “C:/apache/htdocs” I am assuming this issue has something to do with setting the BASE_URI and URL items, but I can’t figure it out. Even if I comment out those 2 lines, the mySql connection still works. Is there some setting I have change in my apache configuration file to allow these changes? When I change these URI and URL variables, shouldn’t the $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] reflect them? Any and all help is appreciated.
