Bug #35126 v 4.4.0-4 cURL Problem
Submitted: 2005-11-06 15:59 UTC Modified: 2005-11-06 23:12 UTC
From: mike at phpeeb dot com Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: cURL related
PHP Version: 4.4.0 OS: Unix
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

cURL no longer executes, script just dies. Happened with new installation of 4.4.0-4 my webhost installed. I cannot upgrade PHP myself, hence my choosing 4.4.1

PHP Version: 4.4.0-4
cURL Version: 7.15.0

Reproduce code:
$ch = curl_init($host_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $host_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $xml);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSLCERT, $cert);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_REFERER, $curl_ref);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$result = curl_exec($ch);

Expected result:
var $result should either return Array of data or error.

Actual result:
$result returns nothing, script dies after curl_exec(). Even die() or echo commands written beneath curl_exec() do not show up. Possible PHP crash?

What more information do you need?
This version of PHP and cURL appear to be incompatible. I was told by my server admin that they use Debian package.

Executing cURL in this version seems to crash PHP, as any instruction written after curl_exec() does not get followed, even die() instructions.

You can read, can't you? 

a) Your example script is useless.
b) Used PHP version is too old.
c) PHP 5.1 + Curl 7.15.0 works just fine for me.

In future, ask your administrator to file bug reports.
