Description:
------------
Get a 2GB file in any of your file system say ./iolog-default

then execute the script with php commandline ...

<?
error_log("this is a test message",3,"./iolog-default");
?>

I am using XFS, and checked creating larger files from other programs.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?
error_log("this is a test message",3,"./iolog-default");
?>


Expected result:
----------------
It should log more then 2GB file .. the OS supports it. I am using XFS, and checked creating larger files from other programs.

Actual result:
--------------
It doesnot log any byte after 2GB file size.

did you recompile PHP with large File support ??

Thanks, It worked when php compiled with the following flags to gcc.

-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64

I need to understand why the default PHP doesnot compile with large file support, is there any problem doing so ... When PHP is used in production environment nobody can take risk.

Is it fine to deploy PHP with large file support with heavy loaded apache 2.0 ???
Any known problem in that ?

I am closing the bug, but please reply ...
