A simple standard form is used to upload a file

<form action="upload.php" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
File: <input type="file" MAX_FILE_SIZE="10000" name="userfile">
<input type="submit" value="send">

The php script says:

echo $userfile;

My ISP upgraded from PHP 4.0.2 to 4.0.6 and at the same time from Redhat 6.1 to 7.2. Apache is 1.3.20.

I've been battling with my ISP (Interland) who says that since i'm not doing anything with the file, this can't work. I gave up trying to teach them PHP after the "senior PHP support specialist" told me that can't work (I wonder why it did before, then).

What happens is the file gets uploaded (takes time to upload, so it is definitely transfering it), then I get the Internal Server Error 500. I don't see the file on /tmp.

There is no php.ini anywhere on the server, so I guess the default values are taken. The phpinfo() looks fine to me.

This worked fine on 4.0.2 and 3.0.9. I tried uploading a file using perl and that works, but i want to use php.

It should work. It's probably a configuration problem (echo'ing $userfile should print out the temporary filename of the uploaded file).
Can you provide some more information, like what's in the error log?

The only log I know about is error_log on /usr/local/apache/log is there anything else I should look at?

[Fri Jan 18 14:22:53 2002] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: /home/usr235/html/upload.php

phpinfo says: 

 './configure' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--prefix=/usr/local/php' '--with-mck=/usr/local/mck-' '--with-dbase' '--with-pfpro=/usr/local/pfpro' '--enable-discard-path' '--prefix=/usr/local' '--with-gd' '--enable-gdbm' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-ftp'

Server API CGI 
Virtual Directory Support disabled 
Configuration File (php.ini) Path /usr/local/apache 

Note that there is no php.ini in this path, or anywhere on the server.

Finally someone that agrees with me that this should work!!!

I have compiled 4.0.4pl1 on the system (simple static install, --with-mysql --with-apache, --host i386-redhat-linux, everything else defaulted, and the script works fine, so there is a problem with 4.0.6. I can't install RPMS as I don't have rpm access. I opened a ticket with the ISP for them to check the configuration, but I don't understand why PHP barfs. I will try with 4.0.5 tomorrow.

So my ISP changed to Apache 3.1.19, still running redhat 7.2 and php 4.0.6. Problem still exists.

I have compiled and installed 4.0.5 in my directory and script is running fine.

 [2002-02-04 02:26 UTC]
Could you check if this problem is in 4.1.1?
 [2002-02-18 09:46 UTC] k141 at hotmail dot com
I'm unable to install 4.1.1 for now, can't test.
 [2002-02-18 10:18 UTC]
Fileupload in 4.0.6 was kinda broken. I am very sure that
4.1.0 and 4.1.1 fix that issue.

Otherwise tell us what browser you are using.
