Bug #18398 Sporadic link failure/invalid link error
Submitted: 2002-07-17 17:42 UTC Modified: 2002-07-18 17:55 UTC
From: vmcore at mysun dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Sybase (dblib) related
PHP Version: 4.1.2 OS: Solaris 8
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2002-07-17 17:42 UTC] vmcore at mysun dot com
Build string:
./configure --prefix=/local/opt --enable-static=mysql --enable-static=sybase --with-mysql=/local/opt/mysql --with-sybase=/local/run/tp/sybase/OpenClientServer/v11.1.1ebf8262 --with-apxs=/local/opt/apache/bin/apxs

Version: 4.1.2

Warning: -1 is not a Sybase link index in /sbclocal/opt/icenine/www/dev/checksheets/include/checksheet_web.class.php on line 1809

Connect Statement:
function dbConnect () // Create basic connection
	// create linkid
	$this->dbLinkid	= sybase_connect("$this->dbHost", "$this->dbUser", "$this->dbPass");
	// select database
	sybase_select_db($this->dbDbase, $this->dbLinkid);
} // dbConnect

It's quite sporadic. Sometimes the errors are different. I was using the same syntax with mysql, but I never had any issues.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately you are not using a current version of PHP -- 
the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new
PHP version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.

You should also try using --with-sybase-ct instead..

4.2.1 doesn't work with my variable setup for some reason. My variables are not passed from page to page. Right now I declare my variables as global in my constructor and then assign them to class values such as:
global $var;
$this->var = $var;
this seems to work. Variables set outside the constructor such as
var $somevar;
don't seem to work unless i assign them static values. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly but I cannot seem to get it to work the other way around.

In PHP 4.2.0, the 'register_globals' setting default changed to
be off. See for more info.
We are sorry about the inconvenience, but this change was a necessary
part of our efforts to make PHP scripting more secure and portable.

It appears that upgrading to 4.2.1 did indeed alleviate my problems. I'm going to have to learn how to properly setup variables because i'm sure that the way i'm doing it now is all wrong, even if it does work. In any case, if I see any reoccurance of the same type of behaviour I'll update this ticket, although I really doubt it will resurface. Thank you for the help and pointers.
