May related to:
This line in my web.config file was causing the issue:

Read more A nice way to output csv with temporary file

In php programming, we always need to output data with csv format, fputcsv is good function to do that. However, it require a file handler which means you must do fopen to open a file write the content to it.

// output up to 5MB is kept in memory, if it becomes bigger

$csv = fopen('php://temp/maxmemory:'. (5*1024*1024), 'r+');

fputcsv($csv, array('blah','blah'));


// put it all in a variable
$output = stream_get_contents($csv);
