According to the REQUEST_URI entry of $_SERVER contains "The URI which was given in order to access this page".

As reported in #66978, this is not the case, as the example given just after shows: "for instance, '/index.html'". Actually, REQUEST_URI contains a URI reference.

This bug exists since as far as I can remember. At this point, it is probably a bad idea to simply fix. This should probably be treated as a documentation bug, and just cause the $_SERVER documentation to fix the entry description, adding a warning about the name.

However, having the actual request URI would be useful too, be it through a new "ACTUAL_REQUEST_URI" entry, a function, or something.

Note: this bug is not completely PHP-specific. gives a historical perspective on URI/URL terminology.
