user agent not available on local server?

Postby morris_buttermaker » 23. August 2010 15:05

Howdy, I have a simple if/else line of php detecting user agent, if it's Firefox on OSX, do this, else do that...

It works fine live but not on my local install of xampp.

I tried this too as a check and live it feeds me back the agent, local nothing.

echo "search for firefox: ==" . stristr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],"Firefox") . "==";

FYI, my file directory is not in the install location, could that have an affect on it?

Thanks

my file directory


what do you mean by that? Are you referring to the DocumentRoot?

have you examined the Apache access.log?

Yes, my documentroot was C:\Xampp\htdocs
I switched to D:\Websites

The sites work and php is running, I can do a basic hello world and whatnot, it's just that useragent not showing up locally.

Not at home so I can't check any logs.

Well check those logs -

See if the visits from your machine to localhost are being logged.

IF the access log is correctly reporting the user-agent, then there's proabably a logic flaw somewhere.

It might be a good idea

If there's nothing in the access.log - that's another matter.

Good Luck

Asked a guy at work here too and he said check to see if php shorthand is on, I thought I had it on, but maybe not.

Better than switching that stupid short_open_tags to on is using the correct format:
Code: Select all
<?php
Code
?>
