Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

Same issue here (PHP 5.3.1 as a  fastcgi module in IIS7). Getting timeouts and HTTP 500 codes whenever I encounter a script that wants to connect to a MySQL server.

Internal logging of my app tells me that the mysql(i)_connect function fails: "Could not connect. A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond."

After reverting to an older version of PHP (pre 5.3.1) all works fine again.

@pajoye: sample code is really simple:

// this will fail in PHP 5.3.1 on IIS7 (fastcgi) even though the DB server is up and the credentials are fine - Internal Server Error will be spawn.
mysqli_connect('localhost', 'username', 'pass'); 


Hope this helps.

yes, i too downgraded to 5.3.0 because of this issue. I even tried installing a latest snapshot on 25th Nov, but had the same issue..

Please disable IPv6 or set localhost correctly in your hosts file (not ::1, as said and explained already a good 100 times here) and try again. Or use

Id like to add, in Windows Server 2008 R2 the hosts file already had 
both of the lines ( and ::1) commented already, but it does 
note (# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.)

Un-commenting the line (       localhost) seems to have fixed 
the issue for now.

Is this going to be fixed in a future PHP release ? Or is it windows ?

"Un-commenting the line (       localhost) seems to have fixed the issue for now."

You have to do it. It is not an option.

Same configuration issue, as always > bogus.
