PHP Version: OS:

 

 [2002-04-28 20:28 UTC] mircea at nistor dot net
I have compiled PHP 4.2.0 with:
./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3.24 --enable-ftp 
--enable-discard-path
and apache 1.3.24 with:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache-1.3.24 
--activate-module=src/modules/php4/libphp4.a 

After I run httpd I can't see $PATH_INFO
I did the same thing with php 4.1.2 and works ok.

is there any settings to enable PATH_INFO or there is problem 
with that.

P.S. Also, I can't see the whole name from PHP Variables.
insted of HTTP_SERVER_..... I see _SERVER_...

Thanks,

here are more info:

The bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking support
questions. For a list of a range of more appropriate places to ask
for help using PHP, please visit http://www.php.net/support.php

Okay, this isn't a support question, it's a BUG REPORT. Just like the previous user reported, $PATH_INFO is not accessible when using PHP in CGI mode.

Platform: Linux
PHP Version: 4.2.1
compile flags: ./configure' '--with-zlib=/usr' '--enable-force-cgi-redirect' '--prefix=/home/webpageweaver/usr/local' '--with-config-file-path=/home/webpageweaver/etc/' '--with-mysql' '--with-gd' '--with-jpeg-dir' '--with-png-dir' '--with-curl=/home/webpageweaver/usr/local/' '--enable-trans-sid'

User Experience: 
1) Create test script, e.g. pathinfo.pl in Perl.
2) access script as http://servername/cgi-bin/pathinfo.pl/more/path/stuff
3) see value of $PATH_INFO echoed back in webpage as /more/path/stuff
4) create test script, e.g. pathinfo.php in PHP
5) access script as http://servername/cgi-bin/pathinfo.php/more/path/stuff
6) see webserver generate 500 error
7) move php pathinfo test script out of cgi-bin directory, verify that php scripts are working in this new directory
8) access script as http://servername/newdir/pathinfo.php
9) see webserver generate 500 error

Seems like a non-Bogus issue to me.
