In an external file I use the following code:
$path = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']; chdir($path."/drupal"); define('DRUPAL_ROOT', getcwd()); require_once './includes/bootstrap.inc'; drupal_bootstrap(DRUPAL_BOOTSTRAP_FULL); global $user; print $user->name;
The code doesn't print anything, but this code works:
$account = user_load(2); print $account->name;
How can I get the name of the current user in Drupal 7?
