Subject Re: [users@httpd] LD_LIBRARY_PATH issue in 2.2.22 and earlier
Date Thu, 24 May 2012 17:17:34 GMT
I got caught the same way in March (re PCI scanning).  Guess my guy is more 
up to date than yours!

There should be no reason that I found not to update to 2.4.2 BUT BE 
CAREFUL OF THE CONFIG FILE CHANGES!  For example the "order deny allow" 
format directives no longer work in 2.4.*.  There are a few other changes.

Also, do not be tempted to update to PHP 5.4.0 as it will cause segfaults 
in all the child processes for reasons that escape me completely.  Use a 
5.3.x version.  This may be my problem but someone on this list was able to 
confirm the issue and said that it is a PHP issue.  It may be resolved by 

Hope that's useful.
