Subject [users@httpd] PHP mystery on new server?
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2005 10:01:29 GMT
Greetings all. 

I'm completely baffled at the moment. Here's the scenario: 

I've designed, developed and administered my company's Intranet website,
employing HTML & PHP as the main browser technologies. We've recently moved
the Intranet from a Windows NT server to a Windows 2K server, with all
necessary software going with it (i.e. Apache, PHP, MySQL). Also, the old
server has been renamed and the new server given the old server's name. 

All seemed to be working okay until I tried a webpage which uses software
I'd written in PHP - this does not work on the new server, the old server is
fine though. Only one other webpage that uses PHP is not functioning,
otherwise all other PHP webpages are functioning as they should on the new

In more detail, the page that does not work uses forms to send and receive
data from a mainframe - the form shows up on both Intranet webpages fine,
but the new Intranet does not error but polls the page and eventually times
out (I guess). I'm wondering if I've missed anything out on the new server?
I don't think it's the respective code - they are identical on both servers.
I've checked php.ini and http.conf but nothing's seems to be (obviously)

The Apache versions are 2.0.45 and 2.0.54 resp. on the old and new servers.
Both servers have PHP 4.3.9 version. 

Can anyone suggest anything else I can check? Any help would be greatly

Thanks in advance.
