It appears that the copy function is not affected by the security restrictions set on the php.ini file



With a script like:
print('<font color=#007700>Try to copy() c:\winnt\win.ini to d:\www\htdocs\phptest</tr></font><br>');
if (!copy('c:\winnt\win.ini', 'd:\www\htdocs\phptest\win.ini')) {
	print('<font color=#007700><b>OK</b>: Copy() Failed</font>');
	print('<font color=#DD0000><b>Warning</b>: Copy() Succeeded!!!</font>');
print('<font color=#007700>Try to fopen() file d:\www\htdocs\phptest\win.ini</font><br>');
if (!fopen( 'd:\www\htdocs\phptest\win.ini', 'r' )) {
	print('<font color=#007700><b>OK</b>: Fopen() Failed</font>');
	print('<font color=#DD0000><b>Warning</b>: Fopen() Succeeded!!!</font>');

I can copy a file from a forbiden directory to an allowed one and the read it.

Other functions that I have tested don't have this "bug".

I tested with Apache for Windows 1.3.14 and the PHP4 module

Best regards,

Victor Fernandes
