OK, first things first.
I use a SRPM to compile PHP, so I can reinstall it on all my servers easily...
This SRPM worked fine until PHP 4.3.1, but it started causing problems (xml) since 4.3.2.

Here is the configure I use
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-mbstr-enc-trans --enable-track-vars --enable-calendar --enable-ctype --enable-versioning --with-readline --enable-mbstring --enable-wddx=shared --enable-mm=shared --enable-mbregex --enable-shmop --enable-sigchild --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --enable-versioning --with-readline --disable-debug --enable-safe-mode --with-exec-dir=/usr/bin --with-regex=system --with-gettext=/usr --enable-trans-sid --enable-ftp --enable-inline-optimization --with-pgsql --with-zlib-dir=/usr/lib --enable-safe-mode --with-config-file-path=/etc/httpd --enable-magic-quotes --enable-apc --with-iconv --with-gd --enable-gd-imgstrttf --enable-gd-native-ttf --with-db3 --with-interbase=shared --with-mysql --with-pgsql=shared --with-ldap-dir=/usr --with-imap-dir=/usr --with-curl=shared --with-pdflib=/usr --with-mcrypt --with-png-dir=/usr/lib --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib --with-ttf --with-ttf=/usr/lib/ --enable-xslt --with-xslt-sablot --with-expat-dir=/usr --with-sablot-js=/usr --with-xml --enable-xml --with-dom --with-xml2 --enable-xml2

Now, when I REMOVE "--with-xml --enable-xml --with-dom --with-xml2 --enable-xml2" it will work fine.
The issue lies in --with-xml/--enable-xml, I tested that... It's NOT domxml or xml2.

Again, this started with version 4.3.2

My XML versions
[root /root]# rpm -qa | grep xml

"/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart" (apache 1.3.20) loads fine, not really a problem, shows no errors, but a "ps aux" shows no httpd process and apache is not on (no site will show)

Once again, the SAME configuration, using 4.3.1 WORKS...

Please advice.

Doing 'apachectl restart' is not gonna work when you install
new module. You need to 'apachectl stop' and then 'apachectl start' to get it work. Most likely some issue with using e.g. --with-regex=system (read ./configure --help) and linking with external expat. (--with-expat-dir).

Not PHP bug, really.

I keep testing, it really is --with-xml and nothing else...
 [2003-07-28 10:36 UTC]
Try with this configure line:

# rm config.cache && ./configure --disable-all --with-xml --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs

OK Thank you.
Sorry for my freaking out, but I've working on it for quite a while now and it was starting to piss me off :-)

THIS works... Odd enough...
So logical explination would be that something conflicts with --with-xml.

Cause if I use MY EXACT same config, WITHOUT xml, it works, WITH it doesn't... Conflict?
Any idea WHAT would be the conflict?
The two you mentioned ain't it...

 [2003-07-28 11:23 UTC]
It's your apache that conflicts with it, it has expat too.
And when you use certain configure options with PHP, it gets confused and can't resolve the conflict anymore.

"Note that if you are using Apache-1.3.7 or later, you already have the required expat library. Simply configure PHP using --with-xml (without any additional path) and it will automatically use the expat library built into Apache."

That's in the manual, here:

Drop the --with-expat-dir and --with-regex=system options.
(latter is another cause for this kind of trouble)

Like I said before, this is not a bug.

 [2003-07-28 11:25 UTC]
Another thing: NEVER use /usr/lib in any configure options.
(they don't expect that /lib part and might fail if it's present)

It did not turn out to be anything you mentioned...
After many many hours I found out the --with-pgsql=shared made it crash....
