In some rare cases both pg_escape_string and pg_send_query cause a segfault in Apache/2.4.18. Unfortunately it happens in cases where I cannot replicate outside of our stack with a test script. However, I have a test machine up where I can replicate the issue consistently so I can provide whatever information is necessary from there.

I can provide whatever output is needed.

Test script:
Unable to provide given the nature of not knowing how to reproduce the issue in a simple test script. This issue is fully reproducible in a brand new machine built on our stack and is reproducible on brand new Ubuntu 16.04.4 machines using PHP 7.1.16.

Expected result:
No segmentation fault.

Actual result:
In the error log: [Wed Apr 25 10:32:28.271689 2018] [core:notice] [pid 32568] AH00052: child pid 12510 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

pg_escape_string() is simple libpq wrapper function, so chances are high that other feature's memory management error is the cause. Please do not forget to paste list of installed modules. i.e. php -m or phpinfo()'s modules list.
