My Apache 1.3.12 server using mod_perl 1.24 (statically linked) and PHP 4.0.2 (dynamic module (.so)) crashes as soon as I access *any* data on the server. "lynx localhost" reports "network errors", and then quits. Netscape just reports that the document is empty.

If I rebuild Apache and leave out mod_perl, everything is fine. If I leave mod_perl in but don't load the PHP module (i.e., comment out the line in httpd.conf) everything is fine as well (except I don't have PHP).

If I check /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log, it says: "Apache/1.3.12 (Unix) PHP/4.0.2 mod_perl/1.24 configured -- resuming normal operations". As soon as I access the server, a new line is added: "child pid xxx exit signal Segmentation fault (11)"

Here's the gdb backtrack output:

    rtld_fini=0x4000ae60 <_dl_fini>, stack_end=0xbffffb1c)

PHP build was configured with: ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs
No warnings at the end (i.e. no warning about e.g. a corrupted apxs script)

Built with just: make , followed by: make install
The php.ini file was just copied and renamed from php.ini-dist

Apache 1.3.12 was compiled with all default modules, with mod_so and mod_perl added. The only thing I changed in httpd.conf is the server name (set to www)

mod_perl is version 1.24, build without any special options.

I use mysql 3.22.32. No additional options during build, just configure, make, make install.

I'm sorry if this is not a bug but is just an error on my side. However, I have read a bunch of faqs and have recompiled all required components several times using several different docs as a guide, but I still end up having the same problem. If you need any more information, please contact me via e-mail.

Have you tried compiling mod_perl as DSO too?
And please try also using PHP 4.0.3pl1.

 [2000-12-05 01:54 UTC]
This should be fixed in CVS now. Please try latest snapshot from  or wait for PHP4.0.4 to be released.

If problem still exists with snapshot or PHP 4.0.4, reopen this bug report.
