Description Robert Scheck 2004-01-13 05:26:43 EST
Description of problem, how reproducible & steps to reproduce:
The first one:
If I upload a file using the file upload example from the php website,
all I get are corrupted files. The resulting files are about two times
bigger then the input files. The amount of bytes on the output varies a
little bit. This does not happens with files of 10 Kb, but different
files which vary from 60-120 Kb got corrupted.

The second one:
If I post text in a textarea, nothing goes wrong. But if I post a lot of
text in a textarea, parts of the text is copied into the text itself.
For instance, I copied the source of http://www.php.net (normal HTML
source) in a textarea. Posted the data to info.php (this script only has
the phpinfo() function, so I can see all data). The sourcecode of the
php website is 376 lines long. The result is about 734 lines. This is
around twice as big (The site looks really weird ;-))

Well, this text is copied, but I had got still *exactly* the same annoying problem!

More at: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=19263

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
Change the following in php.conf in /etc/httpd/conf.d to something 
better and working :)

--- snipp ---
<Files *.php>
    SetOutputFilter PHP
    SetInputFilter PHP
    LimitRequestBody 524288
--- snapp ---

Change it to that:

--- snipp ---
# PHP 3
AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .phps
AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .phtml

# PHP 4
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
--- snapp ---

Expected results:
Change it as soon as possible ;-)

Additional info:
That bug is horrible to many many users...
Maybe you've got to fix that problem in RHEL, too? In Fedora and Fedora Development all looks fine, but you only use there 
"AddType application/x-httpd-php .php", and not all possibilities I listed above :-(

This is bug 82967, and the workaround was included in the -17.2 erratum.

Can you double check that you are using php-4.2.2-17.2 on a server
which exhibits these symptoms?  I can't reproduce any POST body
corruption issues here using the -17.2 packages.

Hm okay, wasn't reproducable at the computers after an reinstall 
of the latest offered httpd and php packages in the up2date
