Bug #24560 parse_url() missing "host" with file:// scheme
Submitted: 2003-07-09 06:31 UTC Modified: 2003-07-21 08:37 UTC
From: tim at digicol dot de Assigned: iliaa
Status: Closed Package: URL related
PHP Version: 4.3.3RC2-dev OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2003-07-09 06:31 UTC] tim at digicol dot de
Description:
------------
parse_url() now prepends the "path" part with the hostname for "file://" scheme URLs.

In PHP 4.3.0 and all previous versions we've used (including PHP 3), "file://localhost/path" produced "[path] => /path".

In 4.3.2, this has become "[path] => localhost/path", which obviously breaks any code trying to access this on the filesystem.

Please fix this in PHP 4.3.3 to keep backwards compatibility.

(Maybe this has been broken while fixing http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=23445 ?)

Workaround:
Use "file:/path" URLs (not tested under PHP 3).
"file:///path" doesn't work in older PHP versions (PHP 4.0.6 says "PHP Warning: unable to parse url").



Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
print_r(parse_url('file://localhost/dir/subdir/file.txt'));
?>

Expected result:
----------------
Array
(
    [scheme] => file
    [host] => localhost
    [path] => /dir/subdir/file.txt
)


Actual result:
--------------
Array
(
    [scheme] => file
    [path] => localhost/dir/subdir/file.txt
)

Ilia, you have been touching this a lot..

file://localhost/some/path == file:///some/path

ie. They should both produce same path: /some/path ??
(and the // one should have host set too)

(at least that's how I interpret this: http://www.w3.org/Addressing/URL/4_1_File.html)

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at http://snaps.php.net/.
 
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at
http://www.php.net/manual/.

In case this was a PHP.net website problem, the change will show
up on the PHP.net site and on the mirror sites in short time.
 
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
