Description Gerd 2005-06-05 13:37:16 UTC
Description of problem:
apache2 produces segmentation fault after accessing php scriptfile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.0.52-3.1 (FC3-rpm)
php-4.3.11-2.5 (FC3-rpm)

How reproducible:
Call php script "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" - apache will crash. I tried httpd -X with
same result, error message (in error logfile): 
"[Sun Jun 05 15:34:06 2005] [notice] child pid 10959 exit signal Segmentation
fault (11)"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. httpd 2.0.52 with PHP4 module "LoadModule php4_module modules/"
2. Call any PHP-file and see segmentation fault (no reply from server)
3. Uncommenting "LoadModule" above, normal replies from apache.
Actual results:
empty reply from server

Expected results:
phpinfo Output

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2005-06-05 21:39:00 UTC
What's the output of:

rpm -V httpd php

Please obtain a backtrace; run

 # echo "CoreDumpDirectory /tmp" > /etc/httpd/conf.d/coredump.conf

and then restart the server, and trigger the crash.  Then run:

 # gdb /usr/sbin/httpd /tmp/core.<pid>
 (gdb) bt full

Closing because bug has remained in NEEDINFO state without reply for a long
period of time.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.

This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.
