Problem with REQUEST_URI

Threaded View
I hope I'm not doing something really stupid .... but I can't get this
to work properly.

I'm using $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] to get the name of the *referring*
page for use in a custom 404 page.

All works hunky-dory (with an .htaccess script and so on) ... but the
value always seems to return the *current* page (ie. the actual error
page that the user lands on) - not the "from" (referring) page.

OK ... so I tried a simple page with a regular URL link to another
page. The value of $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] on that 2nd page was also
the name of that 2nd page - yet $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] gives the
required value.

What am I missing (apart from brain cells!)?

Is there a way of determining the referring page on non-Apache


Re: Problem with REQUEST_URI

See your phpinfo() result ...

Look at the PHP'll find like :
and other variables. Check your refering variables for your server.
