Bug #17299 zlib.output_compression INI change permissions
Submitted: 2002-05-17 19:08 UTC Modified: 2002-06-18 06:41 UTC
From: bob at bravenet dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Output Control
PHP Version: 4.2.0 OS: RH Linux 7.2
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2002-05-17 19:08 UTC] bob at bravenet dot com
The php.ini configuration directive zlib.output_compression is defined as:
 STD_PHP_INI_BOOLEAN("zlib.output_compression", "0", PHP_INI_ALL, OnUpdate_zlib_output_compression, output_compression, zend_zlib_globals, zlib_globals)

However, the OnUpdate_zlib_output_compression function does not enable/disable this functionality. The output compression is only enabled during request initalization, so having INI_ALL access is confusing when you cannot enable or disable within a script.

Suggest changing to PHP_INI_SYSTEM to indicate its true nature or better yet a feature request to move the functionality of RINIT to its own routine and have RINIT use it, as well as OnChange_zlib_output_compression after detecting if any output has already been sent.
