PHP has encountered an Access Violation -- PHP 4.3.x, MySQL, Windows Server 2003 (and a thousand other combos of software involving PHP). And I don't expect a solution because this problem has been going on for 7 -- yes, that's SEVEN - years. And I see people telling us to upgrade PHP (but then I see the new versions still get it), I see them blame Microsoft (but I see people getting it on Apache), I see them telling people to use MySQL (which is what I use and a lot of other people are using and we're STILL getting this idiotic error); basically I see people coming up with all sorts of off-the-wall "solutions" including " hey, post a bug". Well, the people associated with PHP are not going to do anything about it. But it IS a PHP problem. When you see all these various combos of software and the only common thread is PHP, even a monkey has to come to the conclusion that any solution must lie with that product. You can't go around blaming every other product in the software world. So if anyone has an *intelligent* solution, I'd like to hear it. By the way, I've never had or seen this error with Java -- or with Ruby.
