Description David Kutálek 2012-08-03 05:26:58 EDT
Description of problem:

When user switch httpd to worker MPM mode while having installed php, php config tries to load php-zts module. Since php-zts subpackage is not required and it is even located in optional channel, it may easily happen that httpd won't start because of php:

# service httpd start
Starting httpd: httpd.worker: Syntax error on line 221 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 9 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/libphp5-zts.so into server: /etc/httpd/modules/libphp5-zts.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I know that threaded variant of php is without modules and not recommended, but imho we should either always install php-zts with php or arrange configuration in a way which do not broke httpd in this case.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install httpd, php, uninstall php-zts if installed
2. stop httpd, switch to worker in /etc/sysconfig/httpd, start httpd
Actual results:

httpd fails to start in worker mode, with php installed but php-zts not installed.

Expected results:

httpd starts, either with php-zts, or without php when php-zts not installed.

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2012-08-16 11:06:56 EDT
Installing -zts by default is not really desirable.

The described behaviour here is actually the desired behaviour; the server should fail to start up with a configuration error because it *is* a configuration error to try to run php + worker without php-zts installed.  It can't work.
