I have a cron job set to regularly run the following:

/usr/local/bin/pecl upgrade --ignore-errors timezonedb

Earlier today it picked up the new 2015.6 timezonedb update from PECL and PHP 5.6.10 (at the time installed) immediately started spitting segmentation faults under all cases.

I upgraded to 5.6.12 in an attempt to solve the problem and the issue still persists.

PHP just cut out at midnight server-time (EDT). Loads of segmentation faults. Tried rebuilding a bunch of stuff, no dice. Tracked it down to the extension, commented it out, server came back up.

It looks like the issue caused by condition
#if PHP_VERSION_ID >= 70000
within timezonedb.h (of course when php version is less than 7)

Adding "#define PHP_VERSION_ID 70000" before "#if PHP_VERSION_ID >= 70000" produces correct (no SEGSERV)

Checked on PHP 5.5.27, CentOS 6.6

This should be fixed in both GIT master (and PHP-5.6), and the PECL release 2015.6.1
