Subject embperl and SSI
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2014 15:45:09 GMT

I get a segfault on some page loads when using Embperl 2.4.0 on Apache 2.2.15 on a CentOS
6.4 server.  The page causing the problem is using both SSI and Embperl.  When the page is
requested, either no data is returned or partial data is returned.  When no data is returned
the following message appears in the Apache logs:
    [Wed Jul 09 14:05:48 2014] [notice] child pid 29812 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
When partial data is returned no such message appears in the logs.

Apache is configured to serve the affected file as follows:
        <Files *.html>
                SetHandler  perl-script
                PerlHandler Embperl
                Options     +ExecCGI +Includes
                XBitHack Full

There are other files that are served with no problem.  They all use SSI and Embperl, and
are all significantly smaller than this page - less than 8K.  The affected page was trimmed
down to 8100 bytes and served without error.  Disabling SSI for the file by unsetting the
execute bit allows the page to be served without errors (but then the includes do not function).
 When trimmed to 8101 the above errors started.

The following backtrace was observed from Apache when the segfault occurs:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

What's the next step to take to figure out the root cause of this issue?  Can SSI and Embperl
be combined, and if so, is this done correctly with the above configuration?
