OK, I get the following error:

Warning: basename() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in....

When I use the following:

$thepath = parse_url($url);
$filename = basename($thepath);

Is my variable thepath not automatically string?

Hello List.

I need to parse the PATH portion of URL.  I have assigned the path
portion to a variable using the following:

$thepath = parse_url($url);

Now I need to break each portion of the path down into its own
variable.  The problem is, the path can vary considerably as follows:




How do I get the either of the above url paths broken out so the
variables equal the following

$dir1 = mydirectory
$dir2 = mysubdirectory
$dir3 = anothersubdirectory
$page = mypage.php

...etc... if there were 5 more subdirectories... they would be
dynamically assigned to a variable.

  Thanks for any help.


$filename = basename($path);
$parts = explode('/', $path);
$directories = array_pop($parts);

Now you have your directories in the $directories array and the filename in $filename.
