Bug #24827 ob_gzhandler overrides Vary header
Submitted: 2003-07-27 06:09 UTC Modified: 2003-08-02 11:07 UTC
From: phpnet at shredzone dot de Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Zlib related
PHP Version: 4.3.2 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:

Description:
------------
I am using ob_gzhandler to compress the page output. Now I need to add an 'accept-language' to the Vary header, because my page content depends on the language settings of the browser.

Anyhow, it is impossible to change the Vary header when using ob_gzhandler. It seems like ob_gzhandler is overriding an existing Vary header just before returning the compressed content to the browser.

Expected behaviour: ob_gzhandler should check if a Vary header has already been set. If so, it should only ADD an "accept-encoding" unless already present, or should not change the Vary header at all.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
  header("vary: accept-encoding,accept-language");
  ob_start('ob_gzhandler');
  print("<html><body>foo</body></html>");
?>


Expected result:
----------------
A HTTP header "vary: accept-encoding,accept-language" being returned.

Actual result:
--------------
A HTTP header "Vary: Accept-Encoding" (note the uppercase letters) will always be returned.
