When using checkdnsrr I get an Internal Server error.

I am using PHP RPM on IBM i.

Has anyone seen this error and could give me information on how to address it?

<?php
$domain="w3schools.com";
if(checkdnsrr($domain,"MX")) {
  echo "Passed";
} else {
  echo "Failed";
}
?>

Error received when running scrip:
Internal Server Error

Contact the server administrator at [no address given] to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

Time to try other PHP or check configuration. Why? I tried that on a few online PHP sites and got this:
"Warning: gethostbyname() has been disabled for security reasons"

That appears to be happening to you. I am not conversant with your choice of PHP or server.

As rproffitt suggets, it's possible that the version of PHP you're running does not allow checkdnsrr(). Are you running PHP on a Windows web server or Linux? Do other network-related PHP functions work?
