PHP causes Apache to randomly exit with Segmentation fault (11) when serving a PHP file residing in an open_basedir directory. This issue was not present in PHP 5.6.30. I also confirmed the bug in PHP 7.0.19 and 7.2.0 Alpha1.

This bug is similar to BUT produces a different backtrace. Hence, why I created a new bug report.

PHP Build Summary
'./configure --enable-debug --prefix=/WAMP/php --with-apxs2=/WAMP/apache/bin/apxs'

Server API: Apache 2.0 Handler (mod_php)
Loaded Configuration file: none
Thread Safety: enabled

Apache Summary
Server Version: Apache/2.4.25 (Unix) PHP/7.1.6 OpenSSL/1.0.2l
Compiled with APR Version: 1.5.2
Compiled with APU Version: 1.5.4
MPM Name: event

httpd.conf (relevant settings)
CoreDumpDirectory /tmp/core-dumps
DocumentRoot "/JunkServer/website"

<VirtualHost *:80>

	<Directory "/JunkServer/website">
		php_admin_value open_basedir "/JunkServer/website"


Test script:
1. In the DocumentRoot directory, create an empty test.php file.
2. Since the segfault is not consistent, I used apache bench to reproduce the crash consistently:
	ab -n 10000 -c 5 http://localhost/test.php
3. Observe Apache error log and core dump

4. In httpd.conf, remove/comment php_admin_value open_basedir "/JunkServer/website"
5. Restart apache
6. Repeat step #2
7. Observe no segfaults in log and no core dumps.

Actual result:
Apache error log
[core:notice] AH00051: child pid 18214 exit signal Segmentation fault (11), possible coredump in /tmp/core-dumps

Please know that I no longer see segfaults since switching to PHP-FPM. My previous configuration included mod_php (w/ ZTS) with Apache event mpm. Although this Wiki ( states that they are compatible, I read a few blogs stating that PHP thread safety is NOT AT ALL stable.
