BasePath

While most URLs generated by the framework have the base URL prepended automatically, developers will need to prepend the base URL to their own URLs (usually inside an href attribute) in order for paths to resources to be correct.

If you're running a zend-mvc application, basePath() will point to the public folder of the application's root.

Basic Usage

/*
 * The following assume that the base URL of the page/application is "/mypage".
 */

/*
 * Prints:
 * <base href="/mypage/" />
 */
<base href="<?= $this->basePath() ?>" />

/*
 * Prints:
 * <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/mypage/css/base.css" />
 */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
     href="<?= $this->basePath('css/base.css') ?>" />

index.php script

For simplicity's sake, we strip out the entry PHP file (e.g., index.php) from the base URL. However, in some situations this may cause a problem. If one occurs, use $this->plugin('basePath')->setBasePath() to manually set the base path.
