Having a really weird problem with some PHP scripts that use DB2
connections and the i5_xxxx APIs.
Started when we moved to a new box (which is literally a clone of the
original) - scripts that used 'localhost' started failing. Changing to
127.0.0.1 fixed it.
Other problems forced us to switch back to the old box which prior to
switching out had been working just fine. It started failing in the same
way - only thing that had happened in between was an IPL. No PHP upgrade,
no code changes, nothing. Again switching to 127... fixed it.
Opened PMR and IBM requested a trace. No problem - change the script back.
Now the original scripts work again with localhost - yet other scripts that
use it still fail! Arrrgh - this is beginning to feel like Windows !!
Has anyone experienced anything similar?
