I ran into an issue updating Craft and Craft Commerce in my development environment.

I am using Laravel Valet. As soon as I want to update (tried manual as well) Craft will throw the error :

Unable to determine URL path info. Please make sure $_SERVER["PATH_INFO"] (or $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"] and $_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"]) contains proper value.
Please talk to your host/IT department about upgrading your server.

The Error in the logs is:

2017/03/09 16:11:10 [error] [exception.Craft\HttpException.400] Craft\HttpException in /Users/hendrik/Documents/Github/Projects/app/dist/craft/app/controllers/BaseController.php:217
    Stack trace: -0 /Users/hendrik/Documents/Github/Projects/app/dist/craft/app/controllers/UpdateController.php(192): Craft\BaseController->requireAjaxRequest() -1 /Users/hendrik/Documents/Github/Projects/app/dist/craft/app/framework/web/actions/CInlineAction.php(49): Craft\UpdateController->actionPrepare()

I already figured that setting $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] to the same value as $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] would solve the issue, but I cant make it work somehowe... I am sure I am missing something, my project folder structure is:

|-- dist
|   |-- craft
|   `-- public
`-- src
    `-- index.php

And this is the Valet CraftMultiLocaleValetDriver.php I am using:


class CraftMultiLocaleValetDriver extends ValetDriver
     * Determine if the driver serves the request.
     * @param  string  $sitePath
     * @param  string  $siteName
     * @param  string  $uri
     * @return bool
    public function serves($sitePath, $siteName, $uri)
        return is_dir($sitePath.'/craft');

     * Determine if the incoming request is for a static file.
     * @param  string  $sitePath
     * @param  string  $siteName
     * @param  string  $uri
     * @return string|false
    public function isStaticFile($sitePath, $siteName, $uri)
        if ($this->isActualFile($staticFilePath = $sitePath.'/public'.$uri)) {
            return $staticFilePath;

        return false;

     * Get the fully resolved path to the application's front controller.
     * @param  string  $sitePath
     * @param  string  $siteName
     * @param  string  $uri
     * @return string
    public function frontControllerPath($sitePath, $siteName, $uri)
        // Default index path
        $indexPath = $sitePath.'/src/index.php';
        $scriptName = '/index.php';

        // Check if the first URL segment matches any of the defined locales
        $locales = [
        $parts = explode('/', $uri);

        if (count($parts) > 1 && in_array($parts[1], $locales)) {
            $indexPath = $sitePath.'/src/'. $parts[1] .'/index.php';
            $scriptName = '/' . $parts[1] . '/index.php';

        $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'] = $indexPath;
        $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = $scriptName;

        return $indexPath;

I just put it in the .Valet/drivers/ folder and restarted Valet, what am i missing, how can i check of the path is set right?

Thanks a lot.

I forgot to add that i use https://github.com/nystudio107/craft-multi-environment as a flexible multi-environment config for Craft CMS.

I managed to fix the issue setting two variables to the linked valet url in the public/index.php:

$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = 'valeturl.dev';
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = 'valeturl.dev';

now all the updates etc work as expected.
