When you call the phpinfo function, it posts your password on the resulting page. Therefore, you can not include a call to phpinfo on any public page, because people could get into your system. I think that the default call to phpinfo should not output the username/password of the owner of the file.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

I assume you mean environment information which you can skip in the output (RTFM). Otherwise the function is never meant to be shown to every user.
