This is regarding apache which is not coming up with PHP. If you can give me some suggestions I will move it further.
I found that Apache has a DSO(Dynamic Shared Object). Using this DSO it tries to register any third party shared library which has been compiled as a plug in to be used by apache. When I load PHP module then this DSO registers one function to be called at the time of cleanup. During startup Apache runs this cleanup once and in this process when it calls that function(dso_cleanup) which in turn calls dlclose() causes the SIGABRT to be issued because of which Apache aborts.
I am not able to fugure out why at this moment it aborts. One reason can be that handle which is passed in dlclose does not exist. But dlsym suggests that handle exists. Here is the GDB output I got.
