I have compiled PHP-4.1.1 with:

./configure --with-apxs --with-pgsql --enable-sockets 
--with-openssl --without-mysql --with-curl

I have compiled cURL-7.9.3 with:

./configure --with-ssl

Otherwise, I'm using the standard RH stuff.

I'm using the XML-PHP stuff ( to perform 
XML-RPC over HTTPS.  The XML-RPC requires cURL for this. 
 I need the openssl in PHP for another application.

If I perform the XML-RPC request I get:

[Fri Jan 25 17:24:44 2002] [notice] child pid 11452 exit 
signal Segmentation fault (11)

However, if I compile PHP without openSSL support, the 
request works fine.

Hope someone can help :-)

Can you provide a sample script and a backtrace (see
 [2002-01-26 14:32 UTC] lists+bugs dot php dot net at box dot cz
Same problem ...
w/ OpenSSL it goes down everytime.
(version 4.1.1 goes down just if the script uses PHP authentication, 4.0.6 gets 'crazy' after some time ... really stable environment :( )
Btw, IMHO it's not Apache/SSL/glibc/libs problem ...
I've tried many different configurations (various Apaches, various Unixes, various compilers, various libraries (freetype, ...), various PHP4 configs) past three days ...
still having the same problem.
30 mins ago I found it works if I disable OpenSSL (EAPI).
Uff ... I call this 'total waste of time'.

PS: The only common things in this case are: gd 1.8.4, PHP3 + PHP4 support (--enable-versioning), all as DSO. And no, removing PHP3 won't solve the problem, I've already tried that ... guess what happened?

FreeBSD 4.6-stable
PHP 4.2.2 --with-curl
curl --with-ssl
Apache 1.3.27 with SSL

To reproduce the bug:
* start apache
* send a HUP signal to apache's parent process (to restart it)

The server needn't serve any pages (php or otherwise).  Apache crashes while trying to reinitialize SSL.

Running the same version of everything, but curl compiled --without-ssl makes it work correctly: the apache parent kills off its children and spawns new ones.

More details:
This happens with curl 7.9.8 or 7.10.3.
OpenSSL 0.9.7 or a variety of flavors of 0.9.6.

> Please try using this CVS snapshot:

I did this; no dice.

It seems to be dying inside SSL_CTX_ctrl (via SSL_CTX_set_options) when called from apache's ssl_init_ConfigureServer at this line:

SSL_CTX_set_options(ctx, SSL_OP_ALL);

This is the same behavior it had before.  Thanks.

I am seeing a problem that is very similar to this one.

i am useing
apache2 -v
Server version: Apache/2.0.54
Server built:   Jul 28 2006 09:04:55php -v
PHP 5.1.6-1 (cli) (built: Sep  1 2006 13:52:26)
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies

running on Debian Sarge.

if i run the php script from the console, php -f <file> its okay.

when i run it through the browser, it crashes the apache child and spawns a new one.

Whats next?
