Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
... however. There is one problem. My php is working fine unless I call a .php that doesn't exist. Normally you'd expect a 404 but it's returning a 500 (Internal Server Error). I checked the apache error log and it shows:
Premature end of script headers: c:/program files/php4/php.exe
I'm surprised that your seeing a 500 and not a 404. So surprised that I had a look around to see if I could find a solution. No luck so far but you're not the only one:
It seems that it is a bug in your version of php.exe. So check the version and see if there is a newer one you can use. If that dosen't fix it look for other reports on this problem - and see if you have anything in common - send back the info to the developers at php.net.
If your only using your installation for development then things will be fine even with the bug. No reports of similar problems on Unix installs.
I saw that post (and many like it) too but couldn't find a solution anywhere. As you say, it is just a development unit so any production server should *hopefully* be OK. Thanks for having a look around though.
If anybody has a solution, let us know (lots of people will be very grateful!)

It will make debugging a little confusing.
Yep. On a development box I would keep the 500 message, if you had to go live on the same setup I would use the work around...
I should also have mentioned that this is in your .htaccess (for other peeps when finding this post in google - about a month from now).
