How to access $config array - El Forum - 06-19-2011

[eluser]Unknown[/eluser]
Hello,

I'm trying to get value which set at config.php from my controller:
Code:
$config['base_url'] = "http://localhost/ci/";

Now I do it like this:
Code:
$this->config->config['base_url']

Is there any better way instead specifying 'config' twice?

Thanks

According to the Config Class Docs:
Code:
$this->config->item('item name');

you can use
Code:
base_url()
function to get base_url set in config.php

Alternatively, config_item('item') is available globally without loading any additional resources.
