Using PHP, you might need to strip the path from a URL, leaving behind just the filename at the end of the URL. You can achieve this with a regular expression pattern of course, but I have a much simpler solution. See the example code below.

$url = "http://www.domain.com/path/to/file/filename.php";
$filename = basename($url);
echo $filename; //filename.php

And that’s all there is to it. I hope that you found this useful.
