I'm developing my own PHP extension with a class in it. I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 and the extension broke. I since tried to update to 10.04 to see if it fixes it as my dev environment is 10.04 and it works fine on there. The only major difference from what I can understand is the server is 64 bit and my laptop 32 bit architecture. I have PHP version 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.5 (Zend build 20090626).

I have tried running my test PHP file:

$server =  "http://localhost/";
$port = 1214;
$f = new PPKeyClient($server, $port);

And the relevant bits from the extension:

        // Register PPKeyClient class
        zend_class_entry ce;
        INIT_CLASS_ENTRY(ce, "PPKeyClient", pp_functions);
        PPKeyClient_ce = zend_register_internal_class(&ce TSRMLS_CC);
        PPKeyClient_ce->create_object = PPKeyClient_object_new;
        memcpy(&PPKeyClient_handlers, zend_get_std_object_handlers(), sizeof(zend_object_handlers));
        PPKeyClient_handlers.clone_obj = NULL;
        return SUCCESS;

zend_object_value PPKeyClient_object_new(zend_class_entry *ce TSRMLS_DC)
        zend_object_value retval;
        PPKeyClient_object *intern;

        // TODO - only instantiate look at
        // http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1906565/php-extension-library-accessing-php-superglobals
        // or google for http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=superglobals+in+php+extensions&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

        intern = ecalloc(1, sizeof(PPKeyClient_object));
        zend_object_std_init(&(intern->std), ce TSRMLS_CC);
        zend_hash_copy(intern->std.properties, &ce->default_properties, (copy_ctor_func_t) zval_add_ref, NULL, sizeof(zval *));

        intern->last_curl_result = PPKC_NO_REQUEST;

        retval.handle = zend_objects_store_put(intern, PPKeyClient_object_dtor, NULL, NULL TSRMLS_CC);
        retval.handlers = &PPKeyClient_handlers;
        return retval;

PHP_METHOD(PPKeyClient, __construct)
        PPKeyClient_object *intern;
        char *url, *ssl_ca_crt = NULL;
        int port = 80, url_len, ssl_ca_crt_len = 0, ua_len = 0;

        if(zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "s|ls", &url, &url_len, &port, &ssl_ca_crt, &ssl_ca_crt_len) == SUCCES$
                intern = (PPKeyClient_object*)zend_object_store_get_object(getThis() TSRMLS_CC);
//              intern->port = port;

//              intern->baseurl = estrndup(url, url_len);
//              intern->baseurl_len = url_len;
//              intern->ssl_ca_crt = estrndup(ssl_ca_crt, ssl_ca_crt_len);
//              intern->ssl_ca_crt_len = ssl_ca_crt_len;
//              intern->useragent = "PP KeyClient (PPExt#" PHP_PRIVATE_PASSWORDS_EXTNAME " v" PHP_PRIVATE_PASSWORDS_VERSION ")";

I know that commenting the intern = (PPKeyClient_object*)zend_object_store_get_object... line makes it work, but obviously I can't set the values from the constructor without that.

I'm so lost and would appreciate any help finding what's up!


Pointers are 4 bytes long on a 32 bit system and 8 on a 64 bit system.

I can't remember exactly how I fixed this - I think @SlappyTheFish was right - something to do with 64 bitness. I later re-installed the server to be 32-bit and I believe that fixed it, so essentially the problem wasn't solved but I worked around it.
