Very rarely (once, twice per week) I got strange errors in scripts. The last one is:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: verax() in d:\htdocs\ct\dist_channels.php on line 91

The request to the server is:

http://localhost/ct/dist_channels.php?&id=33&subId=330&firstLink=1

O.K. Seems a trivial error for non-existent function. But! Actually anywhere in my code I don't have a call to that function. I checked even all the d:\htdocs directory for the word "verax" and wasn't found nowhere. I'm sure, I don't include ot require some external scripts.

What I have on line 91 is:

$res = $paging->query();

and the $query method of the $paging class is:

function query() {
  return query($this->query." ORDER BY $this->sortby ".(($this->sorttype)?"DESC ":"")."LIMIT $this->frompage, $this->itemsperpage");
}

and the query() function is:

function query($query) {
  global $mysqlid;
  $result = mysql_query($query, $mysqlid);
  if (mysql_errno($mysqlid)) {
    echo $query."<br>\n".mysql_errno($mysqlid).": ".mysql_error($mysqlid)."\n";
    mysql_close($mysqlid);
    exit;
  }
  else
    return $result;
}

Which leads me to the explanation that it's a MySQL related problem. Maybe. I didn't count the previous error messages.

What actually scare me is the missing of the word "verax" in all my scripts and in php.ini. Only in the httpd.conf of the apache (1.3.x) exists that string, but commented.

And finally, when I refresh the page, this error don't appear anymore...so I can't analize where the error comes from. A memory leak...or something in the apache module...I don't know. But it's strange.

Once again:

Fatal error: Unknown function: VERAX() in d:\htdocs\ct\time_zone_client_edit.php on line 22

Post Request:
http://localhost/ct/time_zone_client_edit.php

14 $query = "UPDATE
15             CLIENT
16           SET
17             timezone=$offset,
18		   dst='$dst'
19		 WHERE
20		   client_sid='$CLIENT_SID'";
21 query($query);
22 header("Location: ".(($ok==1)?"time_zone_client.php":$PHP_SELF));
23 exit;

I'm not 100% sure that it's a bug in PHP itself, maybe it's Apache or MySQL, or even system related. But I am 100000% sure that it's not a bug IN MY CODE. I know well where to find help on using PHP, but actually this is 99% a bug IN PHP ITSELF. Caching the problem won't solve it! :)

Here what I have today as output in my browser:

xv>2src=??bZ??>8u>?v>?u>MY_DEPARTMENTS

The exact output contains many special symbols, so I made a screenshots to see them all:

http://www.verax.info/ct/phpbugs/browser_output.jpg

The script itself is:

http://www.verax.info/ct/phpbugs/users.php.jpg

The question, that maybe you're askin' yourself is, where the string 'MY_SEPARTMENTS' comes from. What I have with that name is a session variable (array)...but sure I don't want to see my session variables leaked all over my scripts.

Thank you for your interest in PHP, too. ;)

You really ought to know better how to report bugs..
You're not giving much information, like what apache version,
and any example code that we can try ourselves..
And you should try the latest stable snapshot first too.

Thank you Jani, I am no longer experiencing that problem. If I have additional information which can help us to "catch the bug", I'll add some comment. The biggest problem is that refreshing makes errors disappear.

Regards.
