Bug #31887 Custom 5xx error does not return correct HTTP response message
Submitted: 2005-02-08 17:48 UTC Modified: 2005-04-17 05:39 UTC
From: trevor dot wekel at autodesk dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: IIS related
PHP Version: 5CVS-2005-03-05 OS: Windows XP
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2005-02-08 17:48 UTC] trevor dot wekel at autodesk dot com
When running PHP as an ISAPI extension under IIS 5.1 / Windows XP, the response message for a custom error is not returned.

Reproduce code:
header("HTTP/1.1 559 CustomError");
header("Status: 559 CustomError");
echo "<html>\n";
echo "<body>\n";
echo "Error on page!!!\n";
echo "</body>\n";
echo "</html>\n";

Expected result:
I would expect to see an HTTP response code of 559 with a response message of "CustomError".

Actual result:
The HTTP 559 response code is returned correctly but the response message comes back as "Undescribed".

When running php as a CGI under IIS, this problem does not occur.  Both the response code and response message come back correctly.

The problem does not occur under Apache 2.0 / Windows XP when running as either a CGI or an Apache module.

Bug #31519 is a related and fixed bug under Apache 2.
Bug #31065 may also be a related bug under Apache / Linux.

Under IIS, the HTTP response message still came back as "Undescribed" and not "CustomError".  Do you need any additional information, such as my php.ini file?   

I downloaded and tested against  phpinfo() through IIS using php5isapi.dll version showed the Build Date as "Mar 5 2005 18:15:07" so I'm fairly sure I was using the latest version of PHP.
