#Dummy initial filehandle to obtain lock via 
$fd = fopen('c:/temp/php_flock_test', 'a'); 

$locked = flock($fd,2); #Exclusive blocking lock 
if (!$locked) { 
print "Error: timeout obtaining lock"; exit; 

#Second (actually used) filehandle 
$fdsafe = fopen('c:/temp/php_flock_test', 'w'); 
fwrite($fdsafe,'Replacement text'); 



// This will simply create the file but not put "Replacement text" in the file.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
