could you give a little more detail in what is happening?

What code are you using?

Does the webserver return a blank page (As in, is the response totally empty)? what headers are you receiving? are there any errors in phplog, of\r in apache error log. What happens if you include some debug statements in your code?




PS you should really consider upgrading your php, as php 5.2 is deprecated and will no longer be supported

What level is your error reporting set at? Since there is no output, it would seem your script dies before the "echo data". Do you perhaps have output buffering enabled? Can you confirm that PHP is working? (craete a new script with only:


to check that. Furthermore adding more error reporting (at the top of your script) may help:
