I am implementing gettext into a website, but for some reason, the pages
keep swapping between the intended translated language (French), and the
primary language (English).

I'm using RedHat 7.3, with gettext-0.11.1-2 RPM.

At the top of every page, I have this code:

        setlocale(LC_ALL, 'fr_FR');
        bindtextdomain('messages', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/locale');

And on my testing page, I have gettext() calls surrounding any outputted
text.  Upon checking the returned result of setlocale, it is indeed 'fr_FR'.

I have created a messages.po file (via "xgettext -n *.php"), and put in the
translated text.  I then created the messages.mo file (via "msgfmt
messages.po").  These are both placed in the following directory:


Now, when I load up the web page, everything *should* be French.  Sometimes
it is.  But sometimes it's English instead.  It's a 50/50 thing.  I've
verified that the "setlocale" call is ALWAYS using "fr_FR".

Can anyone help me out?

(And as an aside, can the gettext parameter span multiple lines, or must it
be on one line?)
