Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Cannot replicate the problem in identical environment. The 
problem is likely the result of misconfiguration on the 
server or permissions issue.
