cannot pass query string (GET) vars

P: n/a
I'm having a very odd issue, that arose this morning after working
fine yesterday...

here's a very simple script:

1: <?php
2: $test = $_GET['test'];
3: echo "Hello" . $test . "<p>";
4: ?>

when called using this URL:

http://216.244.107.150/info.php?test=me

the code should just output:

Hello me

but instead the server just hangs, until my browser timesout. If I
remove "?test=me" from the URL, the script works just fine (output:
"Hello "), but for some reason all my PHP scripts now hang when I try
and pass a name/pair on the URL.

Any ideas?? I'm very new to PHP and probably change the config of IIS6
somehow, or just broken it in some other way. Any advice would be
appreciated.

Seems to work OK from here using that IP. Are you sure it isn't some local
firewall/proxy setting? Does IIS keep a access and/or error log, and if
so, what is in it?

To confirm.. when you click the above you see "Hello me" - not just
"Hello"?

No firewall/proxy.. it was working fine for me earlier today. I'll
check IIS6 again, but I'm not sure what to look for. I just tried from
Firefox, and receieved this error message:
"PHP has encountered an Access Violation at 01C21255" - I also tried
from another PC on my network.. same deal. Lastly tried from a remote
PC (via Remote Desktop to the server this is all running from)

ok.. something screwy is going on, right?

I'd say so. Try to access any access/error logs and check it out. The one
with 'oelebole' in the get strings was OK, compare that to your failed
requests.

Here are the logs.. anything jump out at you?

As you can see. I tried "oelebole" first, and it worked! So, I tried
"me" again, failed.. I tried "kevinblount" hinking the length or
reserved word thing might be in play, but it failed to. I then tried
"beekay", failed.. finally back to "oelebole" and it failed this
time.

Really confused now :p

I just checked the evnet logs.. nothing showing at all regarding PHP

I also restarted IIS, and after that the script worked with "me" and

500 status means internal server error, so check the error log why an
error occured. If nothing jumps out, check wether it's an IIS or PHP issue
by using a static page with the GET string instead of a PHP one.

I wish I could edit these posts, rather than spamming all the time..

I found that turning on "friendly HTTP errors gave some clues"..
here's the latest

ok.. restart IIS again
1) first I run http://216.244.107.150/info.php and see "Hello"

2) next I run http://216.244.107.150/info.php?test=me" and it hangs

3) I tru and go back to http://216.244.107.150/info.php and this time
IE returns the friendly error "HTTP 500 - Te website cannot display
the page"

4) no matter how long I eave it, once it's failed once, I can't get
the scipt to work again.

RK: Could you try again, then if it works.. try a different couple of
test= values? I want to mke sure it's working for you multiple times,
not just once.. might be connection/IP based? clutching at straws
here

seems that this is server based, rather than script. Again, nothing
obvious in the IIS logs and no event log entries

I think I need to reinstall PHP and/or follow the IIS setup section
again

Hmmm, worked 5 times in a row, and then failed. Using the last working
GET's in another browser did not fix it.

I'd say that with an error like 'PHP has encountered an Access Violation
at 01CE1255' reinstalling PHP is indeed your best bet.

To confirm.. when you click the above you see "Hello me" - not just
"Hello"?
Indeed. Changing test to 'oelebole' worked too (see your access logs)
No firewall/proxy.. it was working fine for me earlier today. I'll
check IIS6 again, but I'm not sure what to look for. I just tried from
Firefox, and receieved this error message:
"PHP has encountered an Access Violation at 01C21255" - I also tried
from another PC on my network.. same deal. Lastly tried from a remote
PC (via Remote Desktop to the server this is all running from)
ok.. something screwy is going on, right?
I'd say so. Try to access any access/error logs and check it out. The one
with 'oelebole' in the get strings was OK, compare that to your failed
requests.

Here are the logs.. anything jump out at you?
As you can see. I tried "oelebole" first, and it worked! So, I tried
"me" again, failed.. I tried "kevinblount" hinking the length or
reserved word thing might be in play, but it failed to. I then tried
"beekay", failed.. finally back to "oelebole" and it failed this
time.
Really confused now :p

good call on tryuing static pages.. worked fine. I also tried a

Seems to be just IIS. Another post about the error that Firefox
reported seems to have given me an avenue to follow.. hopefully I can
get this working soon. Thanks for all the help.. and if you do think
of anything else, I'd be more thank greatful to hear about it :)

Final update.. having rolled bck to 5.2.0 the error no longer appears.
Following an idea from another post I made regarding the specific
error I recieved in Firefox ("PHP has encountered an Access Violation
at") I found a few (not many mind) posts that said this was a 'bug'
introduced after 5.2.1, so rolling back to 5.2.0 should fix it, and so
far it has for me.

Cheers

here's a very simple script:

when called using this URL:

http://216.244.107.150/info.php?test=me

the code should just output:

Hello me

but instead the server just hangs, until my browser timesout. If I
remove "?test=me" from the URL, the script works just fine (output:
"Hello "), but for some reason all my PHP scripts now hang when I try
and pass a name/pair on the URL.

Any ideas?? I'm very new to PHP and probably change the config of IIS6
somehow, or just broken it in some other way. Any advice would be
appreciated.
