No, as I always use relative links or sometimes the PHP works out where
it is running and sets a base path accordingly. Here's one example of the

	$dirname = dirname(__FILE__);
	if ( substr($dirname,1,7) == "freeola" ) {
        $base = "http://youngtheatre.co.uk/archive/";;
	} else {
	$base ="http://dev.timil.com/yt.co.uk/archive/";;
        print("<base href=\"$base\" target=\"_top\">\n");

Fortunately, my current router allows dev.timil.com to be used to access
my local server from the internet or my intranet. Freeola is the name of
my host ISP; experimenting will reveal a difference between the local
server and the distant one which can be plugged in to the IF.

"/" is not a relative file reference! Bad boy! ;-)

I have it running with PHP on ROSPi 5.21

There are a dozen local copies of websites old and new accessible here
(in the left-hand column) and all I have done is put them all in sub
directories in the web root so nobody can say it doesn't work with the
caveat that the sites need _relative_ links or ways to simulate them.
