Description: CGI PHP doesn't erase the #!/path/to/php

[EMAIL PROTECTED] has a similar problem on a different platform:
--- Start Quote ---
This problem exists also for NT4 with server signature:
 Server: Apache/1.3.14 (Win32) PHP/4.0.4pl1

If I do not put:
at the top of the file then I get an apache server error and this
message in error.log:

[Mon Mar 12 14:08:39 2001] [error] [client xxxx] c:/apache/cgi-bin/hello.php4 is not 
executable; ensure interpreted scripts have "#!" first line
[Mon Mar 12 14:08:39 2001] [error] [client xxxx] couldn't spawn child process: 

As soon as I put it back it works.
An example script:

echo "<br>hello cgi<br>";

but the html-source generated by this is (from browser's "view source"):
<br>hello cgi<br>

Of course, you can hide it with a trick like:
<body bgcolor="black"><font color="white">...
but that's ugly too...

    The only lines concerning PHP in httpd.conf are:

AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .phps

    And, since I use .php as file extension, this lines are irrelevant.

What is your apache configuration for PHP scripts?

   And if you still have any doubts, thinking that Apache has reconized the file 
extension and is not using the cgi version, try

   The output is the same. And if you read the php output on both pages you'll see 
that PHP is run as CGI (Server API CGI).

   "PHP does not require the first line that you are including unlike perl due to the 
way its set up in apache."

   You're wrong. PHP is not set up at all in Apache. Look what happens if I delete the 
first line:

<TITLE>500 Internal Server Error</TITLE>
<H1>Internal Server Error</H1>
The server encountered an internal error or
misconfiguration and was unable to complete
your request.<P>
Please contact the server administrator,
 [EMAIL PROTECTED] and inform them of the time the error occurred,
and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.<P>
More information about this error may be available
in the server error log.<P>
<ADDRESS>Apache/1.3.12 Server at Port 80</ADDRESS>

Server error log:
[Mon Jan  1 16:00:34 2001] [error] [client] Premature end of script

PHP does not require the first line that you are including unlike perl due to the way 
its set up in apache.
