Bug #52786 PHP should reset section to [PHP] after ini sections
Submitted: 2010-09-06 20:39 UTC Modified: 2010-09-09 07:11 UTC
From: f dot grutschus at lubyte dot de Assigned: aharvey
Status: Closed Package: *Configuration Issues
PHP Version: 5.3.3 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2010-09-06 20:39 UTC] f dot grutschus at lubyte dot de
Description:
------------
Many distributions use config-file-scan-dir configure option to set a custom config scan directory.

When PHP ini sections are used in the main php.ini, or in an ini file at the config-file-scan-dir, the following ini files can't use extension= or zend_extenstion=.

This prevents PHP modules from being loaded and breaks many distribution packages. Tested with Debian (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=595761) and Fedora (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=595761).

See also my comment here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.sections.php#99780

Please clarify if this is a PHP bug or any following ini must use [PHP].

Test script:
---------------
on Fedora:
# php -m | wc -l 
73  
# echo "[PATH=/usr]" >/etc/php.d/test.ini
# php -m | wc -l
65 

Expected result:
----------------
automatic set ini section back to [PHP] after [PATH=] or [HOST=]

Actual result:
--------------
[PATH=] or [HOST=] prevents any following extension or zend_extension config option.
