How to get URL of current page in PHP
For more details on what info is available in the $_SERVER array, see the PHP manual page for it.
If you also need the query string (the bit after the

if the current url was http://domain.com/some-slug/some-id, echo will return only '/some-slug/some-id'.
if you want the full url, try this:
<?php echo 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>

$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'], the magic constant
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']. The latter 2 give you the complete path (from the root of the server), rather than just the root of your website. They are useful for includes and such.
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] gives you the file name relative to the root of the website.
$relative_path = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; $complete_path = __FILE__; $complete_path = $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'];

suppose you want to get url of site name
$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] will give you
