After upgrading to 4.3.0 version some PHP scripts stop working. I have checked, that the reason is problem with opening and including files.


I had to change variable:
$blocked_list[""] = "blockkom.txt";
$blocked_list[""] = "<full-path>blockkom.txt";


Warning: main(main/linie.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /www/klient34/start/dolacz.php on line 5

Warning: main() [function.main]: Failed opening 'main/linie.php' for inclusion (include_path=''.:..:/usr/local/lib/php'') in /www/klient34/start/dolacz.php on line 5

In my humble opinion it is a bug, because:

1. Previous version of PHP (4.0) could read file without full path, even if PHP couldnt read "." or higher directory.

2. PHP reads several directories (why?) when includes each file without full path.

2. There is no technical reason to give PHP access to read all directories from "/" to directories with PHP scripts.

I am able to duplicate this on Solaris 8, Apache 1.3.27, PHP 4.3.0.  I traced it to getcwd() (aka VCWD_GETCWD) returning null, and errno=EACCES in fopen_wrappers.c:expand_filepath().  The same code works on 4.2.3.  However, this test was done in a non-standard environment using Kerberos and a distributed file system, so this test may not be representative.

For those of you experiencing this problem, check to see that there is read perms on the afflicted directory and all ancestors.
