Problem: Apache 2.0.35 segfaults when loading PHP module. If LoadModule is commented out, Apache works fine.

To Reproduce: Follow instructions in PHP manual to install PHP and Apache 2.0. Once Apache is configured and everything is installed, run httpd. Httpd will appear to have started normally, but on doing a 'ps -aux | grep httpd' you will notice NO httpd processes, and there is no file. Even using 'apachectrl start', will report httpd started fine. 
Use 'httpd -X' to see segfault message.

Module Line:
LoadModule php4_module        modules/

GDB Backtrace:
(gdb) run -X
Starting program: /usr/local/apache/conf/../bin/httpd -X
[New Thread 1024 (LWP 27916)]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Please let me know what other information I can supply to help. My apologizes if this bug is already reported, I spent a good deal of time searching the bug list.

Can you try 4.2.1rc2 when it's released later today?

 [2002-05-06 13:21 UTC] tonic at nondot dot org
yes I can. Will I need to get this from cvs or will you be putting up a tar ball on

 [2002-05-06 13:23 UTC]
A tarball will be published later (@

Ok. I snagged it from the site you mentioned. Here is what I am noticing:

1) Using apachectrl will cause the same symptoms to occur.
(no HTTPD processes exist)

2) In addition, if you use apachectrl to start it (remember no processes are seen), then try running httpd.. I get this error:
[root@nondot bin]# ./apachectl start
./apachectl start: httpd started
[root@nondot bin]# ./httpd
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down

3) Ok.. so lets skip apachectrl and just use httpd. It successfuly starts httpd and I see processes!! But, now I am getting this in my apache error log:
[Mon May 06 14:31:04 2002] [crit] [client] (13)Permission denied: /home/httpd/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readble.

I do not have an .htaccess file, and I believe there was a bug similar to this awhile back?

Any help is appreciated.. and if you need anything.. just ask :)

I think the last observation regarding .htaccess is an Apache bug (or maybe a feature?!?).

Ok. I think everything is fine.. so looks like this bug is fixed.
