Description redhatbug 2002-12-15 01:20:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705) Description of problem: This is a request for an enhancement to solve a serious unstable problem. I was told when I contacted Red Hat to post this issue here with [RFE] at the start of the summary. Have the ability to install PHP with Apache 1.3 instead of Apache 2.0. RedHat 8.0 only gives the option to install Apache 2.0, however PHP does not run stably yet on Apache 2.0 and the php.net developers still are strongly are suggesting that you do not use Apache 2.0 with PHP in a production environment. I'd like to upgrade my servers to the newer RH8.0 version to take advantage of some other improvements but because most of my servers use PHP in production environments I can not risk my business by putting an unstable setup of PHP in place. Please consider adding this to the RedHat network so I can install a stable http/php server on RedHat 8.0 I know that Apache 2.0 is not considered unstable anymore on it's own so it'd be great to have the option to put Apache 2.0 or 1.3 that way my production sites can still have the stable 1.3/php combination. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.This is a request for enhancement to solve a non-production quality setup you have with PHP (it's the fact php installs with Apache 2.0 in which php does not run stable enough yet for a production/business environment Additional info:

Assign to the right product. Fix priority.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2002-12-17 21:19:50 UTC
Hi - just to clarify, this is something you have actually experienced, i.e. you are seeing server crashes when using PHP in 8.0? If so, these are obviously things we will fix, but some more details would be useful (e.g. which extension modules are in use)
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-06-13 11:18:36 UTC
If no details are given about instability problems we cannot fix them; please file bugs on reproducible problems.
Comment 4 redhatbug 2003-06-13 16:20:06 UTC
I don't have those anymore as I moved back to RH 7.3 - basically there was problems with sessions and memory leaks. Perhaps you need to contact the actual developers of PHP. This is more a poor business choice than a bug as your are installing an alpha quality program on a server and labling it as stable. I don't see how you can install a product (php) on your servers and call your servers stable if the developers themselves say their product is unstable when installed with apache 2.x. It even gives this warning NOT TO USE on production servers when you compile it with apache 2.x
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-07-08 15:54:36 UTC
The warning in the PHP documentation is really inspired by the problems which you'd find if using PHP with one of the thread-based server models in Apache httpd 2.0. The default httpd binary we provide uses the same "prefork" model (process-based not thread-based) as in 1.3, so this is not a cause for concern. I'm going to close this bug as there is nothing we will fix here. Thanks for your feedback.
