Description:
------------
In the ISAPI-Modul of PHP4 (php4isapi.dll) is a ISAPI-FILTER and an ISAPI-EXTENSION includet. If a authtication is made via Http the username and the password for that authetification is captured by the isapi-filter, when the SF_NOTIFY_AUTHETIFICATION is called. After that the ISAPI-Extension is called to run the script. As long as everything runs from the same thread within the webserver, the username and the password work in the ISAPI-Extension (for example in PhpMyAdmin). But if the ISAPI-Filter is called from a other thread than the ISAPI-Extension within the webserver, the username and password are not avalible. Befor i forget it, this only happends if "register_globals" is OFF! With "register_globals" = ON everything works.

I think it should be interpendend from what thread the filter and the extension is called. I think the server-context of the isapi calles should be the reference, and not the thread-id.

The webserver i use is called JanaServer (www.janaserver.de) in a developer state, what can't be downloaded right now. If someone needs that Serverprogramm, feel free to contact me at T.Hauck@janaserver.de

Sorry for my english, but i'am from Germany.

Soory, but i'am bussy with my own project.

>Does it happen with IIS? 
I don't know, i'am not useing IIS.

>How to reproduce?
You need my webserverprogram, if you like i can send it to you.

Like i wrote in my first email, it is not really a bug. If a webserver switches threads will working on a request, it will not work. I don't know if other webservers are switching thread on a request, but my server design does it. And i think, it should not matter for the php isapi modul if that happens. Other isapi moduls don't have a problem with that.
What i also don't understand, in the ISAPI Extension the "Auth_User" und "Auth_Password" Servervariables are called again, why are they not Working /  be used ?

I alos patched my serverprogram right now, so that the AUTHETIFICATION notification is called a second time from the same thread where the isapi extension is called. That is not nice, but it works.

Regards Thomas

PHP has strong thread affinity; the thread that starts a request must be the same thread that executes the whole of the request.  This will not ever change.
