Build line:
./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local --with-apache=../apache_1.3.27 --with-config-file-path=/etc --enable-ftp --enable-trans-sid

All of our include statements throughout about 15 scripts use two levels of path levels "../.." for ease of implementation across separate web servers.

Test is here:

PHP seems to have some serious path parsing issues when run from Apache 1.3.27 as a compiled module.

This is the entire script souce of the above URL:
echo "Current dir is<br>";
echo getcwd() . "<br>";
echo '<hr>';
echo 'chdir("..");<br>';
echo getcwd() . "<br>";
echo '<hr>';
echo 'chdir ("datafeed/onlinestatus");<br>';
chdir ("datafeed/onlinestatus");
echo getcwd() . "<br>";
echo '<hr>';


As you can see, fairly straightforward but it seems to barf when you attempt more than one level of directory changes in a path.

We've also tried the regular 4.3.0 build, same issue.

Our previous build was 4.1.2 as a CGI and it didn't
have this problem.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
