Hi all. We’re considering switching from lighttpd to nginx in my
company and so far everything looks good except for one thing I can’t
seem to figure out.
When getting the document root in PHP from nginx using this:
nginx will always return the path WITHOUT the trailing slash. I have
the document root configured like this:
root /home/web/www.site.com/html/; # note the trailing slash
We have way too much code in php that gets the document root without
adding a trailing slash after $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] because lighttpd
and apache before that always had preserved the trailing slash.
How can I configure nginx to keep the slash?
