I have a machine with apache 1.3.26 and php 4.1.2 and the term type reports "dumb".

I downloaded apache 1.3.27 source and php 4.3.0 source (as well as support sources - ssl, imap, perl, etc).  Compiled and ran just fine.  

The problem is that for some reason the phpinfo is reporting that the term type is VT100 and pulling some extra environmental variables as well.  These variables are not present on the other box.

I compiled php without apache support first (so I could possible run local scripts) then did a make clean and finally configured it will apache support.  

Here is the compile script.

make clean > /dev/null
./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-xml --enable-ftp
make test
make install

make clean > /dev/null
./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3.27 --with-imap=../imap-2001a --with-gettext --enable-track-vars --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-xml --enable-ftp
make install

Everything besides the terminal type and the extra environmental variables seem to be working fine.  

The biggest noticable problem is the environmental variable LS_COLORS which mangles the tables.  Though this isn't a show stopper it just pointed out to me that something was different and I wasn't sure if this different shell is a security issue or could pose other runtime problems.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a

appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
