When E_NOTICE or E_WARNING happen in eval'd code the script return 500
HTTP respons even on not blank pages

PS: third time i have to open the bug, 'cause continue to close it as bogus without wait my reply to his comments. i'll put, as soon as possibile, a script online on our server so you could test the behaviour on the enviroment where we reproduce the bug

Reproduce code:
    eval('$pluto = "test ".UNDEFINED_CONST." test";');

    echo 'AFTER';

Expected result:
Apache Access Log: - - [20/Nov/2007:16:09:23 +0100] "GET /testBug.cgi HTTP/1.1"
200 25

Actual result:
Apache Access Log: - - [20/Nov/2007:16:09:23 +0100] "GET /testBug.cgi HTTP/1.1"
500 25

This is an existing bug. Having the same error on 2.5.4 on FreeBSD.

A failed eval results in a 500 error, although when calling error_log() on the last line of the code, the php script does reach and execute that.

The script is executed correctly, and the response from the server also includes the ( correct ) output of the script without any php errors, but after the 500 header ofcourse. Browsers hang on the error and don't show the output.

I've been having the same problem and thought I'd post my workaround.
If you simply overwrite the headers to return a 200, it works.

eg header("Content-type: text/html", true, 200); (second arg is to overwrite the current header)

NB This needs to be called AFTER the eval that causes the issue.

Hope this helps,

Was able to eliminate this bug by turning output buffering off in php.ini

I have the same issue with 5.2.6 with @eval. See Bug #45592.
Some can mark my bug entry as duplicate.

error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE);

class Test {
    function func1() { // HTTP 500                                          
        ini_set('display_errors', 'off');
        @eval('completely wrong');
        echo 'boo'; exit();
    function func2() { //HTTP 200                                                
        ini_set('display_errors', 'on');
        @eval('completely wrong');
        echo 'boo'; exit();
    function func3() { // HTTP 200  and HTTP 500 with output buffering  

        ini_set('display_errors', 'off');
        echo 'noerror';
        @eval('completely wrong');
        echo 'boo'; exit();
