Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Yes, i saw all the questions about the weird characters at the end of a PHP script. I will ask here because no solution from the internet and serverfault worked.

At this page: https://webmail.pixelwolf.ch/test/ there are some mysterious characters. And that's the problem why my Roundcube does not work.

What I already checked and tried:
1. added AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
2. changed to AddDefaultCharset to ISO xxx (dont know the string right now)
3. php5filter disabled
4. gzip checked (according to php returns junk characters at end of everything) but characters remain there

For notice: on my local server there aren't any of those characters. On local it just works.
So what can I check further?

Ok problem half-solved: I just removed libapache2-mod-php5filter and instead of that I installed libapache2-mod-php5. I don't know whats wrong with that but that solved my problem. I even don't know why I installed filter instead of handler. –  thonixx Apr 25 '12 at 19:23
    
Filter seems to be the default with some package managers these days, I've also had php5-filter problems recently when creating new boxes. Good job working on your own solution. –  Tim Apr 25 '12 at 19:42
    
@Tim: this problem caused me weeks of trouble. Bcause first we showed for problems by RC and now I just wanted to get rid of those characters. And tadaa: the headache causing problem is gone. –  thonixx Apr 25 '12 at 21:09

You saved my day.

I had also this wired square / question mark character on every php page. In hexa, I had those in extra on every pages:

1F 8B 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

It happends also only when receiving gzip content. Removing libapache2-mod-php5filter made the trick:

$ a2dismod php5filter

That's just an alternative to removing the php5filter. –  thonixx Jul 15 '13 at 12:09
