$_SERVER returns empty value

Hi all,

I am pretty new to PHP. I was reading PHP manual and trying out the
example from 2nd
chapter (A simple Tutorial). When i try to print the variable as
given in the example it returns
a empty value instead of returning the browser type.
Here is the line which i am using in my code and from manual:

<?php echo $_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"]; ?>

Following are the versions i am using on FreeBSD 4.8:
php-4.2.3
apache_1.3.27

Is it bcoz of any config problem ? I am adding my php.ini for your
convenince.
Can anyone help me out ??
Thanks in advance.

PHP.INI:

[PHP]
; $Id: php.ini-dist,v 1.73.2.2 2001/04/22 11:58:49 phanto Exp $

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior. In order for PHP
to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'. PHP looks for it in the
current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment
variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that
order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory. The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
;
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple. Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably
guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
;
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from
FOO=bar.
;
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or
M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an
expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
;
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and
parentheses:
; | bitwise OR
; & bitwise AND
; ~ bitwise NOT
; ! boolean NOT
;
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
;
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after
the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;
; foo = ; sets foo to an empty string
; foo = none ; sets foo to an empty string
; foo = "none" ; sets foo to the string 'none'
;
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend
extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the
extension.
;
; All the values in the php.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
; defaults (that is, if no php.ini is used, or if you delete these
lines,
; the builtin defaults will be identical).

Here is the line which i am using in my code and from manual:

Following are the versions i am using on FreeBSD 4.8:
php-4.2.3

Do you have your browser type set to "" in your browser secuurity preferences?
Try:

<?PHP
print_r($_SERVER);
?>

Does:

<?PHP
echo "Hello World!";
?>

work?

Shawn

Thanks for your reply.

It does work with print_r :) . echo is also workin.
well, what does print_r do ?
I have same problem with $_SESSION variable ! :( Is there something
else i must use ?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply.

It does work with print_r :) . echo is also workin.
well, what does print_r do ?
I have same problem with $_SESSION variable ! :( Is there something
else i must use ?


print_r prints out an array. Search PHP.NET functions for print_r for more
info. If you're using Mozilla, Opera and some others, I think you can disable
sending the browser info to the server. That may be why you get nothing when
you try to print out the browser info.

I think if you try "echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];", you'll get something.
In order for $_SESSION to print out anything, you have to set something.

Try:

$_SESSION['foo'] = "bar";
echo $_SESSION['foo'];

Of course, you have to start the session first with session_start.
For more info on sessions, read:
