I'm running apache 1.3.26 on win32 and am experiencing *frequent* apache process crashes when using the latest build of PHP 4.3.0-dev. 

The happens when requesting the same compontents of specific webpages from the server but does not seem to be directly related to a specific functional group. I've had the crash happen when issuing a simple phpinfo() and it is reaccuring (yet not 100% of the time) for specific code running in a single iframe on a page. Sometimes it is simply an image that is being returned via setting a content-type header and performing a fpassthru.

The crash happens when running apache as a service and in console mode. I cannot reproduce the same problems with the same timestamped build compiled for linux.

I've tried to find information on how to generate a useful trace log on windows to help get this fixed but I have not found anything in the support lists or on the website. If there is anything I can do to further report this please let me know!

Could you try to isolate a small piece of code that craches Apache?
 [2002-09-10 06:00 UTC] screen at brainkrash dot com
Through a long night of compiling i've generated the following debug information. I hope it's helpful. As far as generating code, i'll try and see what I can do. To be honest i'm completely uncertain as to even where to begin. I'll try though...

Unhandled exception in Apache.exe (NTDLL.DLL): 0xC0000005: Access Violation.

Ok, i've created the simplest example I can. Unfortunately it's not as simple as i'd like. It requires a php handler to be defined in apache. The example handles a page request for the defined path in apache. It checks the requested type and includes php files with an output buffer function which then registered a shutdown function. This is done so that the output can still be captured if the requested php file performs an exit;. The crash doesn't occur unless the requested file generates multiple browser requests for files within the handled path (i haven't tested with files outside this path).

Here's the link to the example:

the README.txt file contains apache conf, file layout, and reproduction instructions.

The problem still persists in the latest daily build.

wrong version used -> bug got lost. Closing since I can't reproduce this with latest stable CVS.
