Apache Custom Environment Variables in PHP
If you ever wanted to create a new Environment Variable, you can do so by setting them in the VirtualHost section.
<VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /www/htdocs ServerName www.my-dom.com SetEnv VARNAME varValue </VirtualHost>
And to use it in PHP simply use $_SERVER[‘VARNAME’] or getenv(‘VARNAME’);
If you were to check the output of phpinfo(), you can actually see the Environment Variable as the image illustrates below.
