Another thread about paths when Bootstrapping PW

Have read loads of similar threads but can't find the deifnitive answer. I'm bootstrapping ProcessWire into a Magento installation. Everything is working fine in terms of expected PW API functionality, however I cannot get the paths for images in the site work correctly.

ProcessWire is installed in a subfolder called 'pw'.

If I load the PW site directly e.g. visit mainsite.com/pw everything loads fine and all image paths are correct. If I load the parent site in the root folder with the PW bootstrapped page content rendered within it, the image paths don't contain the subfolder and so are broken. So I get

https://mainsiteexample.com/site/templates/img/test.jpg

instead of

https://mainsiteexample.com/pw/site/templates/img/test.jpg

I've tried updating the rewrite base in the .htaccess file but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Have also tried various settings in the config file to no avail. Wondering if rewrite base perhaps isn't working as intended because I'm behind a NGINX/Apache hybrid environment?

Thanks @wbmnfktr - I did take a look at this and couldn't get anything working. I'm not sure at this stage if this is a server config issue my end or I'm not using ProcessWire as intended in this scenario. It seems to me that PW is grabbing site root from the parent page where the embedded bootstrap content is rather than the PW installation itself. Is this expected behaviour?

Can't you just use httpUrl instead of url?

That was my first thought too but it seemed to produce different output when bootstrapped vs loading as ‘native’ ProcessWire.

Although I’ve now solved it, my hunch is still the rewritebase option in htaccess wasn’t working as intended. It could be because of the NGINX Apache proxy setup.

For the record since I left the office for the day it dawned on me that the link @wbmnfktr posted above to Ryan’s updates on the customisable paths probably will work - but I think it may currently require the dev branch whereas this site is running master.

Interesting - I did try to call setLocation() from ready and init and both threw an error even though the blog post indicates they’re callable from there.

Typo that didn't make any sense!

Which pw version are you running?
