    Hello all,
    I have Windows 2003 server with Plesk 7.6.1
    I installed, IPB, VBulletin, SMF forums.. All of them when I or other members wants to change avatar and when they choose external URL... PHP says;
    CGI error!
    Then Service Unavialable.
    I have to restart the server to make PHP run again.
    Does anyone knows how to solve it?

    Thank you for your time!

    What does it have to do with Plesk Control Panel?!

    I believe it is plesk settings cousing this problem. I am running PHP as ISAPI having this problem, if I won't run it as ISAPI and I will choose CGI support, then I am having CGI ERROR. But at least it is just saying this. It is not crushing whole PHP in server that I need to restart to make PHP run again!

    Hi Dejin, I came accross a similar problem which may be related. In order for php to load an external URL it usually uses the function fopen.

    Plesk 7.6.1 comes with PHP 4.4.2 and there is a known issue with fopen and external URLs. It will give a CGI Error.

    See version 4.4.3 http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-4.php

    * Fixed bug #36017 (fopen() crashes PHP when opening a URL).

    If the forums are using fopen() for external urls (a differnt domain) then this is more than likely your problem.

    Ive not used any of the forums so I cant say for sure.
