This is similar to bug reports #1555 and #1919:

When trying something like
on either Apache 1.3.9 + Windows 95 or Apache 1.3.6 + RedHet 6.0 + STANDALONE php I receive only the message:
  No input file specified

However, when I try
it works fine.

On RedHat 6.0, I've compiled php 3.0.12 straight out of the box using
  ./make install
(this gives me the non-redirect version) 
Again, I am not using mod_php in this case (since I don't have it on Win32 either), but I am using the *STANDALONE* version of 'php'.

I've looked in the code, and the same thing is happening on both platforms. This is the cuplprit:

/* If for some reason the CGI interface is not setting the
    PATH_TRANSLATED correctly, request_info.filename is NULL.
   We still call php3_fopen_for_parser, because if you set doc_root
   or user_dir configuration directives, PATH_INFO is used to construct
   the filename as a side effect of php3_fopen_for_parser.
  if (cgi || GLOBAL(request_info).filename)
    in = php3_fopen_for_parser();

    if (cgi && !in) {
       if (php3_header()) {
           PUTS("No input file specified.\n");


PATH_TRANSLATED nor PATH_INFO is set in this case, because the syntax is ".../php/test.php". However, PHP seems to want these variables when run in "CGI mode" and therefore spits out the erorr message
  "No input file specified."

Should this be considered a bug?
