Description: ------------ Under linux running PHP in CGI-mode absoluteURI() loses the directory path, returning http://domain.tld/script.php instead of http://domain.tld/path/script.php This is caused on line 323 of HTTP.php v1.3.5 ($Id: HTTP.php,v 1.42 2005/02/15 19:15:39 mike Exp $) when running PHP in CGI-mode $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] is an empty string instead of unset. The result is that the if statement on line 323 evaluates to true. Then $path is set to an empty string because strlen($_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) = 0 on line 324. I don't know if it is an php bug that $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] is an empty string in CGI-mode, but an fix / workaround is changing line 323 to: if (!empty($_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) && $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] != $_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) {
