Hi,

I have found a very serious and easy to reproduce bug happening with CURL on latest PHP 7.2.X (which is 7.2.24).

Just run the code below on your server running PHP+APACHE+MARIADB:

<?php

$curl = curl_init();

$opts = array();

$opts[CURLOPT_URL] = "https://www.sitepor500.com.br";

curl_setopt_array($curl,$opts);

echo curl_exec($curl);

?>

It will work just fine, I mean, you will see the contents of the page on CURLOPT_URL. Now JUST ADD one single line of code to it and the bug will happen:

<?php

$conn = mysqli_connect("localhost","root","your_password");

$curl = curl_init();

$opts = array();

$opts[CURLOPT_URL] = "https://www.sitepor500.com.br";

curl_setopt_array($curl,$opts);

echo curl_exec($curl);

?>

Incredibly, just adding a connection to a local database will make CURL fetch the content of the URL specified at CURLOPT_URL as "" (empty string). This happens with any URL.

Test script:
---------------
<?php

$conn = mysqli_connect("localhost","root","your_password");

$curl = curl_init();

$opts = array();

$opts[CURLOPT_URL] = "https://www.sitepor500.com.br";

curl_setopt_array($curl,$opts);

echo curl_exec($curl);

?>

Expected result:
----------------
You should see the URL content

Actual result:
--------------
Nothing is shown

Guys I think it has something related to SSL!

On the test code I provided you if you change https://www.sitepor500.com.br to any domain that DOES NOT have SSL it will work. Try changing https://www.sitepor500.com.br to any domain that does not force https redirection and the bug goes away.

So it clearly only happen when the destination domain uses SSL.

note: this bug does not happen when using `file_get_contents`.

This should be solved on 7.2.5 with Nikita's patch http://git.php.net/?p=php-src.git;a=commit;h=4f984a2fdb3815361f83013c23af0ff5d6d63d67 of bug #78775

Ah, good catch!  It's 7.2.25, though.

@gilperon, can you please try with a current Git snapshot?

I mean with PHP 7.2.25 (which has already been released).

Hey guys,

Yesterday it came back to work, RIGHT after I updated the PHP version to 7.2.25. However today, the bug came back to happening again! It's pretty strange, cause I didnt update anything today on my CENTOS server.

Really weird. I also clean installed Centos 7 on a new cloud, installed LAMP with PHP to 7.2.25 and the bug also happens on a clean install. It's pretty easy to check it, just run the code with MYSQLI and CURL using HTTPS and it happens.

HOWEVER if I remove HTTPS from the CURL it works just fine.

To clarify, running under strace should be as simple as "strace php script.php".
