Bug #37428 php.exe crashing if unable to load any of configured extension dll
Submitted: 2006-05-13 10:43 UTC Modified: 2006-05-24 22:05 UTC
From: velkran-2 at yahoo dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: *General Issues
PHP Version: 5.1.4 OS: Windows XP SP2
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2006-05-13 10:43 UTC] velkran-2 at yahoo dot com
Description:
------------
php.exe will crash if any of configured extension dll cannot be found.
It can either incorrect extension_dir or just missing dll file.
From my point of view it is better to proper report this situation, not just crash.
As far as i can see usually php report this situation in error log.
I'v tried 5.1.4 and 5.1.2 with same results.

Just to be sure, i did these steps:
1. Download php5.2-win32-200605161430.zip
2. Download php5.2-dbgpack-win32-latest.zip
3. unpack these 2 files to e:\php5.2
4. copy php.ini-recommended to php.ini
5. edit php.ini, uncomment line ;error_log = syslog
6. edit php.ini (to emulate "PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library" error)
Before:
;extension=php_bz2.dll
To:
extension=xphp_bz2.dll
7. change current directory to e:\php5.2
8. start php.exe
9. got usual windows GPF message, click "Debug" to create backtrace
Please find a Backtrace at the end of this comment.

As far as i can see there is some problem with windows event log reporting, basically it failes at this line:
	/* default event source */
--->	if (!PW32G(log_source))
		openlog("php", LOG_PID, LOG_SYSLOG);
I'm pretty that openlog was not called yet, i put a breakpoint on it. So failing somewhere inside mystical PW32G thing.
Hope this will be help.

I was able to reproduce this problem on latest 5.2 snapshot
 [2006-05-22 09:30 UTC] velkran-2 at yahoo dot com
The workaround for this issue - is not use event log (on Windows)
 [2006-05-24 21:06 UTC] edink@php.net
What do you mean by do not use event log?

I don't get a crash I get:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '.\php_xxx.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
