Basically I'm building a php MMORPG or online game, now I have hit a small snag...

in order ot stop players cheating I have produced a large number of logs. n.p.

however one of the things I want to include is the address of the page that its currently on.

No problem you say...

[blockquote]$address = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];[/blockquote]


[blockquote]$address = __FILE__;[/blockquote]

unfortunately this doesn't store all I need it to. lets say for instance we're on train.php if we use any of the above methods it will work fine.

but if we're on train.php?step=pie then it will drop the vars and I'll just end up with train.php in the $address.

The idea is if someone was trying to cheat, e.g. train.php?step=pie&money=-1000 or something then it would be able to get the whole address so that when its inserted into the log I can see how people are modding any get vars that are used.

any help would be appreciated.

Tehehe actually ran into this today trying to work that same problem backwards


$var1 = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
$var2 = $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];
$var3 = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

Errr one of those three should do it, URI I believe

Side note
$var3 = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

Should be what you are looking for

Then if you need to strip off the extra what I used was ereg() though I am not sure if that is the best solution

you can use the parse_str function to separate all you're vars if I think that's what you want to do
