Get environment value in controller
To get an environment value in a PHP controller, you can use the
getenv function. For example, to get the value of the
APP_ENV environment variable, you would do the following:
$appEnv = getenv('APP_ENV');
This will return the value of the
APP_ENV environment variable as a string.
You can also use the
$_ENV superglobal to get environment variables. For example:
$appEnv = $_ENV['APP_ENV'];
$_ENV superglobal is an array that contains all environment variables as elements.
Note that environment variables are specific to the environment in which a PHP script is executed, and are often used to configure PHP scripts for different environments (e.g. development, staging, production). They can be set in the system environment, or in a file such as
.env in the root of your project.
