PHP Version: 4.2.1 OS: Solaris 8/Intel
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

PHP dumps core when compiled with both LDAP and OCI8. The reason is the Oracle client libraries include an LDAP library, and PHP is calling the Oracle ldap_modify_s instead of the OpenLDAP ldap_modify_s. We are using OpenLDAP 1.2.11 and Oracle 8.1.6.

Short-term workaround: use LD_PRELOAD, e.g. add:


to your Apache start scripts.

Here is the gdb backtrace:

Here is the final link stage in compiling PHP. Please note -lldap is supplied before -lclntsh, and thus OpenLDAP should resolve first, but apparently this is not the case:

Since you got Oracle with LDAP support, you could also 
use that instead of OpenLDAP. To use Oracle for LDAP
you write something like

This does indeed fix the ldap_modify_s problem, at least with 4.2.1, although is still linked with the Solaris standard /usr/lib/
