Subject Re: Seg Fault with PHP and Perl together

Check the mail archives for this list, there was a thread about using perl and
php together not that long ago. I think that one suggestion was to compile
mod_perl statically with apache, and to load php as a module. Also, you may want
to upgrade your perl to at least 5.6.1, if not 5.8.0. Are you using apache
1.3.26? (anything older has a well-known security exploit). What version of

Subject:  Seg Fault with PHP and Perl together


I inherited a very happy cobalt raq3 with 2 sites using embedded Perl
which work very well. There are about 20 sites on the box. I needed to
get PHP running on the same box, so I made the module, added it into the
httpd.conf and PHP was working fine - Except that it broke the perl sites.

The http error log entry is:
child pid 22610 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

- the client gets a 'page not found error'.

All I have to do get perl working again is to comment out

LoadModule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/
AddModule mod_php4.c

and restart httpd, it works fine again, obviously minus the php

Bearing in mind, I am on about page 3 of "O'Reilly's Apache - The
definitive Guide" does anyone know the simplist way I can get it
working? I don't need any sites to use both embperl and php together.

This is a virtual site section in httpd.conf for one of the perl sites
(anonymised) there is also a big <Perl> chunk in the httpd.conf, not
sure if that is relevant here.

ServerAdmin root
DocumentRoot /home/sites/site42/web
PerlModule Apache::DBI
PerlModule HTML::Embperl
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}                !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}                !^$
RewriteRule ^/(.*)            $1 [L,R]
RewriteOptions inherit
#<Files *.htm*>
#SetHandler perl-script
#PerlHandler HTML::Embperl
#Options ExecCGI
AliasMatch ^/~([^/]+)(/(.*))? /home/sites/site42/users/$1/web/$3
AliasMatch ^/users/([^/]+)(/(.*))? /home/sites/site42/users/$1/web/$3
# AddHandler server-parsed .shtml
# AddType    text/html     .shtml
AddHandler cgi-wrapper .cgi
AddHandler cgi-wrapper .pl

It looks like perl and PHP are getting in each others way, should I try
and make a new apache? what order should I do things in? Should I look
for another job? :), I need to get it working quickly and with the
minimum disruption to the server. Every time I try and do things like
this on a RAQ something breaks something else, usually its the GUI and I
get about 50 phone calls.

perl is version 5.005_03, Apache 1.3, PHP 4.21
