Syntax error on line 205 of /usr/local/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Cannot load /usr/local/httpd/libexec/ into server:
/usr/local/informix/lib/esql/ undefined symbol: stat

esql -V:

Apache:  1.3.19
PHP: 4.0.6
RedHat Linux: 7.1
glibc: 2.2.3

We have the same problem with newer Intel Informix Client SDK
(the one you can download from

One esql that works on Intel Linux is:
INFORMIX-ESQL Version 9.30.UC1

I unfortunately don't have an older Redhat Linux/Alpha Informix
Client SDK to try.

This snapshot _should_ fix the problem:

It works fine for me with the 2.70.UC3 which is the latest I found from the informix site. (it's same as 9.30.UC1, wierd versions they have :)

Same problem with Suse 8.2, regardless of whether latest snapshot or stable version is used.

The issue is with glibc. 'stat', 'lstat' and a few others have moved to a libc_nonshared.a archive, and out of libc. 

Check your /usr/lib/ file, it should look something like: GROUP ( /lib/ /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a )

if that still doesn't work, you need to recompile your from the libifgen.a.

Here's how:

mkdir /tmp/ifx
cd /tmp/ifx
ar x $INFORMIXDIR/lib/esql/libifgen.a
gcc -shared -o *.o
cp $INFORMIXDIR/lib/esql
