Description:
------------
PHP Version 5.2.9
Server API CGI 

I have faced a typical php bug in date formatting on a server, The server return NOTHING for English Ordinal Suffix (st, nd, rd or th) when used with Day of the month(j) formatter.
Below is the code

<?php 
error_reporting(1);
echo 'testing format [m/d/Y h:i:s]'. date('m/d/Y h:i:s');// ok
echo 'testing format [jS F, Y]'. date('jS F, Y');// NOTHING shows
?>

While the first format shows correct value, the later shows nothing, if used alone ( without the first formatting line) Server generates error.

Is is php bug or server problem.

Many thanks for your time.
Regards


Test script:
---------------
<?php 
error_reporting(1);
echo 'testing format [m/d/Y h:i:s]'. date('m/d/Y h:i:s');// ok
echo 'testing format [jS F, Y]'. date('jS F, Y');// NOTHING shows
?>

Thanks derick

I already tried with other versions upto php 5.3 including 5.2.10, on all occasions it is found working, as I can not get hold of 5.2.9 anywhere, I have to report this to the hosting support to upgrade.

Please do let me know if you can confirm that this only exists in 5.2.9

However I am referring this id and asking the hosting support to upgrade.
