[mapserver-users] PHP $imgObj->saveImage(null) sends headers

1) Your php code is not correct I think, ob_get_clean  just cleans the
output and does not return the captured content.
2) Try with no framework, maybe it sends some headers before you run your code.

This works for me in Zend Framework in MVC mode, should work for symfony too.
$image = imagecreatefromstring(ob_get_contents());
