I have found these 2 lines in my syslog,
this crash happens nearly a few times a day.

Aug 23 10:37:00 hillsbrad crashdump[10305]: httpd crashed
Aug 23 10:37:00 hillsbrad crashdump[10305]: crash report written to: /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/httpd.crash.log

My website is being used by 400 users a day,
on the 'crashing page' several images can be uploaded.

Reproduce code:
I tried to reproduce the crash, but it didn`t work out.

I`ve added some debug code,
some debuglines appear about 30 seconds before the crash.
Some a few seconds after (they are not reported in the same way).

It might also be that the debugging lines are not even reached.

Expected result:
I don`t know what exactly happens to the user on the website.
I`ve never got any complaints about it or something.

It could be a delayed crash or something
(eg: the uploads create some buffer overflow, and apache crashes on the next request or something.)

But I would expect not to see a crash happen

Actual result:
Exception:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes:      KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x310074f4

First get the latst 5.2.4-dev snapshot:

Then compile it with using --enable-debug in your configure line.
Before you launch Apache, disable all Zend extensions in your php.ini.

Run Apache under GDB:

# gdb --arg httpd -X
(gdb) run

Then do the things required to crash it and:

(gdb) bt

And you should have better backtrace. Although it seems to be coming from the filter extension by looking at the current backtrace, it's easier to pinpoint the exact place when the debug symbols are around.

I can't run 5.2.4-dev in gdb on a live server.
That will slow down about 1000+ sites i`m hosting.

But I will try to run one server without Zend extensions.
Let`s see whether I still get crashes on that one
 [2007-08-23 11:46 UTC]
Nobody asked you to run it on live site..
 [2007-08-23 11:48 UTC] jille at hexon dot cx
true, but I can't reproduce it on my dev server...
 [2007-08-23 14:12 UTC]
So it crashes but you can't build a debug version of PHP for your live site to get better backtraces so that we could actually fix it and you don't know how to reproduce it reliably..quite a chicken'n'egg problem here. :)
 [2007-08-30 12:55 UTC] jille at hexon dot cx
Well, I disabled the zend extensions on one server, but it crashed anyway...
Got any other ideas to try to locate the problem (without slowing down the entire server) ?
 [2007-08-30 13:17 UTC]
Did you build PHP with --enable-debug or not? As long as you're not able to provide any useful way for anybody to reproduce this or a decent backtrace there's not much we can do about it. And you need to do it using PHP 5.2.4. (it's the one you get from atm)
