Bug #55010 POST requests send 4 extra bytes
Submitted: 2011-06-08 18:01 UTC Modified: 2011-06-08 18:08 UTC

Status: Duplicate Package: HTTP related
PHP Version: 5.3.6 OS: Ubuntu 11.04
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
PHP sends 4 extra bytes with a POST request when using stream_context_create and 
file_get_contents.  The extra bytes are CR LF CR LF.  The RFC does not state that 
CR LF CR LF should be after message-body.

This appears to be the same as Bug #43222: stream_context_create() bugs
Was there a test created to detect this problem?

Test script:
---------------
$url = 'http://localhost:8001/post';
$post = 'Sample';  // 6 bytes

$options = array(
    'http' => array(
        'method' => 'POST',
        'protocol_version' => '1.1',
	'content' => $post,
    )
);

$urlParts = parse_url($url);

$headers = array();
$headers[] = 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8';
$headers[] = 'Content-Length: ' . strlen($post);
$headers[] = 'Connection: close';  // Force servers to close the connection
$headers[] = 'Host: ' . $urlParts['host'];  // Required for HTTP 1.1
$options['http']['header'] = $headers;
$context = stream_context_create($options);
file_get_contents($url, false, $context);


Expected result:
----------------
The hexdump of the TCP traffic should appear like thus:


00000000  50 4f 53 54 20 2f 70 6f  73 74 20 48 54 54 50 2f  |POST /post HTTP/|

Actual result:
--------------
This is what I actually capture as TCP traffic
