Description:
------------
PHP5 beta2
IIS5
Windows 2000 SP4
ISAPI mode

- Worked correctly with PHP4.3.4 with Zend 2.0.1

- With PHP5 beta2 (also ISAPI mode) a simple PHP page which uses include_once([local path]) to include the menu part of a web page sometimes works, sometimes does not (sometimes the menu is included, sometimes it is not). (There is only the single include_once in the code, so this is NOT an issue of my trying to include something twice with include_ONCE... )

- The page contains NO other PHP code, just the lines below:
<% include_once("c:/wwwroot/domain.com/english/inc/header.inc"); %>

(html_head.inc is the file to be included, it contains only html code, no php)

- Again, note that the exact same page, exact same setup works fine under 4.3.4 - and has done so with previous versions!

- Under PHP5, with every refresh of the page the inclusion of the file is erratic - every few refreshes the inclusion is not done.

If you need any part of my php.ini, let me know please.

Thanks,
Steve

Reproduce code:
---------------
<html>
<head>
<title>The world of services</title>
</head>
<body>

<% include_once("c:/wwwroot/domain.com/english/inc/header.inc"); %>

Please select from the menu on the left!

</body>
</html>

Expected result:
----------------
A page with the menu on the left (created fromt he included file), plus the contents.

Actual result:
--------------
Only the contents apperas, the inclusion is not done.

Try using the PHP tags, not those ugly ASP tags.
(<% %> -> <?php ?>)

YES, with conventional <?php ?> tags the includes work perfectly and consistently! :)

However, this IS still a problem - I need to use the <% %> because of the editor I must use (FP...)! ASP-style tags ARE - in theory - supported, aren't they? (They are enabled in the INI file, and I have been using them in all our sites for ages without any problems!)

So then the problem changes to ASP-style <% %> tags versus regular <?php ?> tags... Do I have to open a new bug report, or just leave this one open?

Thanks!

Another note: This cannot be an IIS related bug, it must be related to PHP itself since all previous versions of PHP worked fine even with the ASP delimiters (<% %>) which I have to use. The problem arose only as of version 5.x - including the latest build which I just tested.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php5-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php5-win32-latest.zip

There's good chance this is fixed now, can you please try the snapshot..
