I'm using apache 1.3.12.

The bit of code that does it on my setup:


$content = ob_get_contents();


The code in the virtual() call should obviously be replaced with something relevant on your setup.

When virtual is called, the output is immediately sent to the browser and not assigned to $content . I have a virtually identical script using an include() instead of virtual() and it works perfectly.

PHP that run it either.

So you better use include() in this case. It's also more
