Assigned To: 

i have the same problem here. when i turn on the log startup errors flag in the 
php.ini i get the following output :

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP 
headers. The headers it did return are:

FATAL:  erealloc():  Unable to allocate 1043162510 bytes


i guess there's something wrong within the parser or compiler, because nothing of the 
code is executed.

unfortunatelly i don't have 1GB RAM so i would be happy if there is any solution to

In case you missed my second message:

Here are two typical lines from the IIS error log: the first is a successful page load 
(code 200) and the second is the CGI error after the redirect (502) Note that in the 
IIS log format it is normal for a space to separate the URL
and the Querystring. The last column in the log is the referrer URL.

2001-01-16 17:20:30 - GET /success/ProbRev.php3 EmpID=5&New=Y
200 0 378 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+5.5;+Windows+98;+Win+9x+4.90)

A few more things: the problem is not easily reproducible. Also, if I change all of 
the database calls to go to mySQL (which I have installed on Windows 2000) instead of 
SQL Server 2000 (which is the database system I was using, also installed on the same 
machine), I do NOT get the CGI errors. However, in both instances, the databases do 
get updated or otherwise manipulated successfully; it's just the redirect that fails 
when using SQL Server. Hope this helps.

Can you tell us what is in the logs of IIS?

Our situation is similar to that in bug report 8571, particularly situations 1 and 2. 
After adding, updating or deleting a record to a MSSQL database, the user is referred 
to this function (stored in file which is included in each page):

function pageRedirect($inURL) {
  header("Location: $inURL"); 

$inURL is never exactly the same as the current URL - either you are redirected to a 
completely different file name, or to the same file name with a different query string 

The record modification part always completes successfully in MSSQL, and the header() 
function sends the user to the new URL, but this error occurs:

CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of headers. The headers 
that it
did return are:

... and any code in the page that the user has been redirected to is NOT executed. If 
the user clicks refresh, it does and all is well. 

This is a PHP web application being ported from a Linux/mySQL environment, where it 
works, so it appears to be an IIS-specific issue.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
