PHP version 4.38 (and earlier versions)
System  Windows 2000 5.0 build 2195  
Build Date  Jul 13 2004 17:31:56  
Server API  Apache 2.0 Handler  

When I try to print a string larger than 200k, 
I receive a blank page : "Impossible d'afficher la page"

Unable to print the page, the service may be temporary unavaillable.

Unfortunately, i can't get any error message in my error_log file, even if ERROR_ALL is set in the php.ini.

BUG #25570 explains likely the same problem, but no snapshot could resolve this crash.



Reproduce code:
echo $buf ;

Expected result:
.............. (*1000000)

Actual result:
 Impossible d'afficher la page

I've tested the sample code with the current CVS vrsion PHP4 and PHP5, both CLI and CGI, and I don't get any crashes.

What SAPI are you using?

I use php4apache2.dll from the 4.3.8 version.

You're right : in CLI mode, no problem.

excuse me : I wanted to say Php version 4.38 (and older versions) in my previous post. In deed, I haven't tested yet with php 5.

And please try using different browsers, it can be a problem of your browser.

Not a problem of my browser...

But, I have a new piece of info : 

When I use php4apache.dll + apache 1.3.31, it works fine.

So, i will use apache 1.3.31 again, and let apache2 for a while.

Thank you for your help
