  • Hi, Thanks for responding, I am trying to pass DB Variables to use in a configuration file of my site. I have managed to do it for apache by using SetEnv however I'm having an issue for nginx. I have tried to use fastcgi_param DB_NAME value but cannot access the variable using $_SERVER['DB_NAME']; How can I output the variable ? or fastcgi_param isn't the right way ?


Any feedback please ?
