Feature: #58366 - Add “auto” Option for config.absRefPrefix¶
See Issue #58366
The TypoScript setting
config.absRefPrefix can be used to allow URL rewriting like giving a hard
prefix for all relative paths. As an alternative to
config.baseURL to be set to a specific domain
absRefPrefix can autodetect the site root and use that instead of manually setting this option.
The new option can be set like this:
config.absRefPrefix = auto
instead of hardcoded values for different environments or when moving installations in subfolders.
[ApplicationContext = Production] config.absRefPrefix = / [ApplicationContext = Testing] config.absRefPrefix = /my_site_root/
As the feature only works with path prefixes, and not with host name variables from the server, the new option is also safe for multi-domain environments to avoid duplicate caching mechanism.
The new special option can be used to automatically set up installations and distributions like the Introduction Package where a site configuration is shipped with the system but might need to be adjusted.
