getallheaders() is supposed to be available outside of the Apache SAPI since PHP 

This is true for php-cgi for example, but it is not true for php-fpm where 
getallheaders() still causes

 Fatal error: Call to undefined function getallheaders()

Test script:


Expected result:
I expect to see the query headers (I need getallheaders() to get the OAuth bearer 
token from the Authorization header which unfortunately doesn't survive the move 
into $_SERVER)

Actual result:
 Fatal error: Call to undefined function getallheaders()

I'm having the same issue. 
getallheaders() works fine using PHP-CGI (5.5.3), but compiling and using a 5.5.3 
PHP-FPM will raise a Fatal error: Call to undefined function getallheaders()

A fix would be much appreciated.

PHP 5.4.9 with php-fpm having this issuse.
A fix would be much appreciated.

Running PHP-FPM, 5.4.4 this is present.

The documentation on mentions that this function became available from 5.4.0 for FastCGI and my PHP-FPM tells me its API is FPM/FastCGI.

A solution is to either update the documentation with the workarounds mentioned in the comments or to more clearly define that this is not available for PHP-FPM.

Or adding it to PHP-FPM.

The documentation is misleading and regardless this type of functionality should be transparent across all SAPIs (where applicable) - especially one as relevant as FPM.

Thank you!

This ommission is now 4 years old...

I know the PHP team hate distribution patches, but Debian has integrated a patch that fix this missing function for FPM, at least for 5.6 (0046-getallheaders-for-php-fpm-62596.patch).

Why not take it?

I hope it's not going to be 4 :)

I suggested generic name for the function when the change was made. e.g. sapi_header_get_all(), sapi_header_send(), etc.

It would be time to cleanup all function naming mess.

There's PR #910[1] lying around since quite a while – not sure why it hasn't been merged yet.

It seems that is not even accepted for 7.1 even. 

In the meantime, @ralouphie has a polyfill that can be installed via composer: making the function available in all scripts that loads the composer autoloader.

PS I tried adding to this bug report but I could only choose PRs with ids from around 1800+

Let's clean up function name mess now and add it (them).
Need RFC for this. If nobody cares, I may handle this. Assign this bug to me.

Hello, I also commented here in 2013 for this bug to be fixed. 
Apparently a person has been assigned to this bug in 2014. 
Today 2017, it has been "un"assigned. 

Does this means this bug will never get fixed ?
 [2017-12-14 11:01 UTC] chris dot collins at boxuk dot com
It would be good if this could be resolved. It appears it has got close to being fixed in 5.5 and 5.6, but both times PRs have been closed due to those versions lapsing into "security fix only" mode. It's still present in PHP 7.

The previously mentioned workaround to use a polyfill (ralouphie/getallheaders) works: at the very least should be updated to indicate this method is not always available.

Popular Linux distributions will begin defaulting to PHP-FPM in the not-so-distant future. Fedora 27 has already done so. It may be wise to get ahead of this issue.
