Bug #9476 can't use 'system', 'passthru',... from apache. works when direct php.exe
Submitted: 2001-02-27 06:25 UTC Modified: 2001-04-27 12:57 UTC
From: avihpit at yahoo dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Program Execution
PHP Version: 4.0.4pl1 OS: w2k
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

php 4.0.4 AND php 4.0.4pl1
apache 1.3.14
both as cgi and as apache module

program execution functions don't work. ("warning.. can't fork... ")

when using direct php.exe to run the file 
(i.e. \php\php dir.php) works fine
where dir.php contains:
<?php passthru("dir"); ?>


it would have been more appropriate to return "file not found" in php 404, and "access forbidden" in php 403 :)

fixed in cvs, wait for 4.0.6
please note that dir isn't a real command try something like

passthru(getenv("COMSPEC") . " /c dir");
