parse_url

This function parses a URL and returns an associative array containing any of the various components of the URL that are present.

  • scheme – e.g. http
  • host
  • port
  • user
  • pass
  • path
  • query – after the question mark ?
  • fragment – after the hashmark #

This function is not meant to validate the given URL, it only breaks it up into the above listed parts. Partial URLs are also accepted, parse_url() tries its best to parse them correctly.

<?php
 $url = 'phpcodez.com/index.php?user=1';
 echo "<pre>";print_r(parse_url($url)); 
?>
Output
Array
(
    [path] => phpcodez.com/index.php
    [query] => user=1
)
