Yii::app()->request->baseUrl need clarification


I am currently using the UrlManager described in the Yii doc, with .htaccess and configuration file.

I have a trouble, since I am using the UrlManager and call Yii::app()->request->baseUrl in the config params It always return http://localhost despite of http://localhost/domain.name/

Here the following files:





			'urlSuffix' => '.html',





Options +FollowSymLinks

IndexIgnore */*

RewriteEngine on

# if a directory or a file exists, use it directly

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

# otherwise forward it to index.php

RewriteRule . index.php

and in params.php:


return array(

	// using Yii::app()->params['paramName']

		'imageCouleurPath'			=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/couleurs/',

		'adminEmail'				=>		'webmaster@example.com',

		'imageSetIconsPath'			=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/set_icons/',

		'imageSetIconsThumbPath'	=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/set_icons/thumb/',


Any ideas please? I am stuck :confused:

This is caused by your server configuration. Please print_r($_SERVER) and see what it is.

Thank you for your answer Qiang.

I have a look what you asked. Did not find anything suspicious which may be the cause of this problem.

Here the result of the print_r:

Based on your $_SERVER info, 'baseUrl' should be '/domain'.

Hmmm I don't understand.

Wen I am calling Yii::app()->request->baseUrl in my view I see /domain.name.

But when I am trying to do that way in the main config:


		'imageCouleurPath'			=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/couleurs/',

		'adminEmail'				=>		'webmaster@example.com',

		'imageSetIconsPath'			=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/set_icons/',

		'imageSetIconsThumbPath'	=>		Yii::app()->request->baseUrl.'/images/set_icons/thumb/',


And show the variable e.g. Yii::app()->params['imageCouleurPath'] in the view it shows me "/images/couleurs/".

Do I am doing something wrong? ???

Do not access app components in app config because at that time, the components are not configured and available yet.

You may use dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']) here to indicate the base URL.

Ok thank you very much Qiang.
