Summary

XML error: Invalid character at line 1

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13.0v1

Operating system version

Mavericks Mac OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

Using the FileMaker PHP API/Custom Web Publishing we're getting an error:

XML error: Invalid character at line 1

when performing a simple find Command. I'm not sure what the invalid character is - I printed to screen the result of the find command and all the data was there. This was at the top if that helps:

[error_message_prefix] =>
    [mode] => 1
    [level] => 1024
    [code] => 401
    [message] => XML error: Invalid character at line 1
    [userinfo] =>
    [backtrace] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [file] => /Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/php/mavericks/lib/php/FileMaker/Error.php
                    [line] => 52
                    [function] => PEAR_Error
                    [class] => PEAR_Error
                    [type] => ->
                    [args] => Array
                        (
                            [0] => XML error: Invalid character at line 1
                            [1] =>
                        )

                )

Steps to reproduce the problem

Call the php page that performs a find on a contacts table. The layout referenced in the php page only contains 5 fields;

Expected result

Found set of records

Workaround

None so far.
