is_file and filesize not working on a NFS mount.
These files are readable and writable for user (Using PHP CLI).

is_file and filesize working for local files. Not for NFS mounts.

By the way, file_exist is working.

The code is working under PHP 5.2.3 (cli). And not under PHP 5.2.9 (cli)

Reproduce code:
echo "Full path : $SourceFile\n";
if (!chmod($SourceFile, 0777)) {
   echo "Unable to Chmod file\n";
if (!file_exists($SourceFile)) {
    echo "Source file not found\n";

$FileSize = filesize($SourceFile);

if (!$FileSize) {
    echo "Source file empty !\n";

Expected result:
Full path : /home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7

.. and continue the script

Actual result:
Full path : /home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7
Source file empty !

# ls -lah /home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7

Strace on php execution return that :

stat64("/home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=9888768, ...}) = 0
write(2, "PHP Warning:  filesize(): stat f"..., 139PHP Warning:  filesize(): stat failed for /home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7 in /root/test.php on line 3

This might be related to ug #45040 (And LFS support in general..)

As I don't have any NFS mounted stuff available anywhere, can you try 

# CFLAGS=`getconf LFS_CFLAGS` ./config.nice
# make clean && make

And then try that script of yours.

It's working with LFS support.

Stat is exactly the same :
stat64("/home/files/3/4/0/340db92364af5c0616187f6e1db86ed7", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=9888768, ...}) = 0

But after the size is writen correctly :
write(1, "9888768", 79888768)                  = 7

(Working on a 32bit system)

I'm closing this report in favor of bug #45040 (where the actual fix 
originally was proposed)
