This is exactly the same problem as bug #3627.

OS: Win98 SE
Running Apache Server 1.3.9 with PHP 4.0.4pl1. I'm trying to upload a 10MB file onto the FTP server.

PHP 4.0.4pl1 has been downloaded precompiled from

PHP.INI fraction:

The apache server will dump two lines into the error.log and ftp file transfer will die (server stays intact):

Premature end of script headers: c:/bin/php/php.exe
FATAL:  erealloc():  Unable to allocate 5884001 bytes

If I try to send the file <= 5M it is working fine and fast.

It appears to be that 5884001 bytes (or so) is the upper limit of the file size -- doesn't matter what the php.ini options are.

I tried even rebooting the whole machine after the applied changes (well, Microsoft tactics) -- no luck.

can you check that your php.ini file is actaully being read? This works fine for me. Also please upgrade to 4.0.5 or latest CVS and check that this is still the case.

In config file all is OK, but when I upload the file larger then 5mb I have the same problem:

The same problem was with older versions of PHP and Apache...
