Subject [users@httpd] any reasons not to compile with -enable-exception-hook?
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 02:06:22 GMT


is there any reasons why you would not want in production (or hardened
server) an apache compiled with -enable-exception-hook?

The manual says:
"For safety reasons this directive is only available if the server was
configured with the --enable-exception-hook option. It enables a hook that
allows external modules to plug in and do something after a child crashed."

what safety reasons? why ?

Thank you - Fred
