Subject: [PHP-DEV] PHP 4.0 Bug #8808: sybase_connect() problem
From: sjm05 at health.state.ny.us
Operating system: Win2000
PHP version: 4.0.4pl1
PHP Bug Type: Sybase-ct (ctlib) related
Bug description: sybase_connect() problem
I work for NYS Department of Health. We have a large
Public Health Network which operates on SUN boxes with Sybase ASE SQL. Most of the applications are written
I am investigating the possibility of replacing the PowerDynamo with PHP. On the surface it appears that we would not be in for a major rewrite as we would if we were to employ JSP as an alternative. PowerDynamo is a dead
product in the eyes of Sybase as well as most of the Sybase Developer community.
I first became interested when we attempted to move the existing application to Laptop computers for purpose of taking to presentations. I found that the combination of the MS Personal Web Server and PowerDynamo was very
unstable. I began looking for a better Web Server for the Laptop computers which lead me to Apache. I have never been able to get PowerDynamo to work with the Apache Web Server.
In learning about the Apache Web Server I began to see the PHP product being discussed as a SQL Server interface. So I began investigating it at that point.
So for I have PHP, MySQL, and Apache functioning properly in Win2000.
Sybase ASE is functioning properly as well in the ODBC interface to SQL Advantage, Access, PowerBuilder, etc.
When I attempt to connect the PHP code to the Sybase server it fails giving the following error message:
The instruction at "0x00a555b1" referenced memory at "0xa5ed7940".
The memory could not be "written".
Click on OK to terminate the program
Apache/1.3.14 Server at 127.0.0.1 Port 80
This has happened a number of times with several builds of the Apache, PHP, and reloading the Win 2000 OS just to be sure.
PHP Version 4.0.5-dev
Windows NT 5.0 build 2195 / Jan 12 2001
Sybase 11.9.2 ASE for Windows NT
I have installed PHP on other computers using the same configurations and gotten some slightly different results.
As in what follows:
[Thu Jan 18 21:39:32 2001] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Premature end of script headers: c:/php4/php.exe
In each case the call to the sybase_connect() causes PHP to fail.
If I comment out the sybase_connect() call the rest of the program runs although calls to other sybase functions return appropriate error messages in that there is no connection.
I can send more detailed information in the way of Apache error.log, php.ini, phpinfo() display screen, and the Apache httpd.conf. This format does not lead itself to attachments.
I may have left something out in the way of preparing the interface in that I have found very little reference to the PHP / Sybase installation.
