Recommended Posts

hi,

can someone help me, i know how to get a site url and how to get part of a string, but what im finding difficult is getting the end of a url, for example:

http://www.mysite.com/mypage/index.php

from this, how would i get 'mypage' as a string?

You mean the directory that index.php is in?

Don't know if there's a simpler solution (hope there is) but you could do this:

$path = 'http://www.mysite.com/example/index.php';
print substr(strrchr(dirname($path), '/'), 1); //will return example

If you want to just get the current directory (and not parse a url string), use <a href="http://pt.php.net/getcwd">getcwd</a> .

best
