Comment 4 Joe Orton 2004-04-16 11:34:44 EDT
Great stuff, thanks Robert.  Building into Raw Hide now.  I'll do an
FC1 update for this one too.
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2004-04-18 07:24:31 EDT
Actually, this won't show up in Raw Hide for a while, there is a
showstopper in 4.3.[56] which is now being triggered (upstream #27810).
I'm build the fix but it needs more testing.
Comment 6 Robert Scheck 2004-04-20 06:39:56 EDT
I noticed, that the restart executed by logrotate on some systems
kills the httpd, if php 4.3.[56] is used. I still don't know how to
reproduce that breakdown and I don't know what that problem causes.
Even your patch for upstream #27810 doesn't solve it.

Maybe you are able to reproduce and track down this...

So I think, it's really okay that only 4.3.4 is used for FC2 (as it 
Comment 7 Joe Orton 2004-04-20 07:45:48 EDT
A problem separate from the mod_python issue, I take it?  If the
parent is segfaulting can you get a core dump?

echo "CoreDumpDirectory /tmp" > /etc/httpd/conf.d/core.conf

is sufficient to get a core dump in /tmp with the FC2 httpd package.
Comment 8 Robert Scheck 2004-04-23 05:10:51 EDT
I think it is a separate issue from mod_python, and I attached the 
backtrace from the core dump of the logrotate restart - maybe it

Sorry, backtrace is only such short - apr, apr-utils and httpd are
the latest ones.
Comment 10 Joe Orton 2004-04-23 07:06:32 EDT
This is exactly the backtrace you get without the fix I posted on
apache.org/~jorton for upstream #27810.  Are you sure you had the
patch applied?
Comment 11 Robert Scheck 2004-04-23 07:51:09 EDT
Waahh...pleae forget it, I used the wrong (unpatched) binary :-(

Thank you very very much for your help :)
Comment 12 Joe Orton 2004-05-12 10:04:26 EDT
Re-opened for tracking as update to FC2.
Comment 13 Joe Orton 2004-05-24 12:00:24 EDT
php-4.3.6-5 has been issued to the FC2 "testing" repos; please report
results of testing here.
Comment 14 Robert Scheck 2004-05-25 12:14:27 EDT
php-4.3.6-5 works very well here at my computers :)
Comment 15 Joe Orton 2004-06-01 11:32:29 EDT
Thanks for your feedback.
