Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo known bugs or issues.


Bug fix: corrects drive letter error

File: config.inc.php Location: *\Uniform Server\udrive\home\admin\www\includes

Problem: In vary rare situations the environment variable "Disk" is not passed to PHP. In this event the script calculates its own path and extracts and uses this disk letter. However, there is a bug that produces an incorrect drive letter.

Unfortunately, my original fix introduced a problem when installing The Uniform Server as a service. The following fixes both problems:


Replace this section of code (around line 26):
$drive = $_ENV['Disk'] . ":";
if($drive == ":"){ 
 $path = realpath(dirname($_SERVER['config.inc.php'])); 
 $pathArray = explode("\\",$path); 

With this version:
$drive = $_ENV['Disk'] . ":";
if($drive == ":"){ 
  $path = realpath(dirname($_SERVER['config.inc.php'])); 
  $pathArray = explode("\\home",$path); 
  $drive="$pathArray[0]"; //drive letter and any sub-folders 
  $drive=str_replace("\\","/",$drive); //change backslash to forward slash

It splits the path at the "home" folder boundary, so the drive will include all sub-folders.


Download this file config.inc.php.txt save it as config.inc.phps and copy to folder *\Uniform Server\udrive\home\admin\www\includes.
