Bug #47882 calls to mysql_connect crash
Submitted: 2009-04-02 21:45 UTC Modified: 2009-04-03 13:48 UTC

Private report: No CVE-ID: None

I am wondering why Bug 46842 was closed with no resolution? The status shows as "Bogus".  However, I just bought a new laptop and installed MySQL 5.1.33, Apache 2.2.11, and PHP 5.2.9-1.  Then I couldn't run anymore because Apache dies with the exact same problem reported with Bug 46842.  In other words, it's not bogus at all.

I configured php.ini the same as I did on my old laptop (Apache 2.2.8, MySQL 5.0.22, PHP 5.2.5) by turning on CURL, MySQL, MySQLi, and OpenSSL.

By the way, I got by the problem by following the advice of one of the people who posted on Bug 46842 - I copied the libmysql.dll from PHP 5.2.5 and overwrote the one supplied by PHP 5.2.9, but I only did that because I can't afford down time.  I would gladly undo that change if someone would fix the problem.

Reproduce code:
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpass = 'password';

$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die ('Error connecting to mysql: '.mysql_error());
echo 'Connected successfully';


Expected result:
Connected successfully.

Actual result:
The browser says Apache can no longer function and will close.  Apache doesn't close, but I don't get a connection either.

Your system loads libmysql.dll from 5.1 instead f the 5.0 version which was used when linking PHP but these libraries are incompatible. You can safely use the 5.0 dll to connect to a 5.1 serer though.

So, in other words, PHP 5.2.9 is simply not compatible with Apache 2.2.11?  I was using the files that came with both of those installations and it failed.
