I compiled the new php 4.3.4 under cygwin today. (4.3.4 not 4.3.3 - I couldn't select this version in the drop-down-menu of your bug-form-page).

It compiles and works out of the box.

Configure Command =>  './configure' '--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs' '--without-mysql' '--with-sqlite' '--with-bz2' '--with-gdbm'

No changes to php.ini compared to php.ini-dist.

As you can see I also included the sqlite extension (--with-sqlite). It compiles and works fine - exception: the function sqlite_popen is not working. I have to use sqlite_open all the time.

The problem occurs in the php.exe as well as in the embedded apache dll.

I also upgraded the PECL SQLite extension from your 1.0 release to the most current CVS version (04.12.2003) - but this didn't change. It's simply not working at all under Cygwin. The sqlite_popen *always* fails.

If I compile the same source code under my linux box it just works fine.

Reproduce code:
$dbname = "bbb";
$db = sqlite_popen($dbname);
echo "$db\n";
$db = NULL;
echo "Done\n";

Expected result:
Resource id #4

Actual result:

Warning: sqlite_popen(): unable to open database: /tmp/bbb in /tmp/bert on line 3

Warning: sqlite_close() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /tmp/bert on line 5

Does it work if you use an official binary release of PHP
and the official php_sqlite.dll from ?

Yes, with the recent php-4.3.4 (just downloaded from for win32 and the php_sqlite.dll (from the download location that you gave in this ticket) it works fine!

But of course it might be a huge difference if one works within native win32 (above) or within the cygwin environment (ticket). My problem happened within the cygwin environment (posix / linux emulation layer for win32 -

Thanks so far for looking at my bug report!

Compiling under Cygwin is not supported by the PHP development team. Just stick to the official windows distribution.
