Hotfix PHP segfaults ISPConfig 2.2.x

    Since we updated PHP to version 5.1.2 in ISPConfig 2.2.0, I have seen a number of problems related to segmentation faults here in the forum. These segfaults have never been there with PHP 5.0.x versions.

    After searching the PHP bugtracker, I found several bugs in PHP 5.1.2 that result in a segfault. It seems that PHP 5.1.2 is not as stable as the older versions and some of you got these stability issues.

    Even if i can not reproduce the segfaults on my servers, I decided to make a hotfix that downgrades PHP 5.1.2 to PHP 5.0.4 in ISPConfig 2.2.0 and 2.2.1 installations. This hotfix must only be installed if you encounter one of the following problems:

    1) Changes in the ISPConfig interface where not written to system config files.

    2) Running the command:

    /root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php

    as root user results in a segfault.

    Installation instructions:

    Login on the shell as root user and execute these commands:

    tar xvfz compile_php_5_0_4.tar.gz
    cd compile_php_5_0_4
    The compile script stops ISPConfig, compiles php 5.0.4 as replacement for PHP 5.1.2 and starts ISPConfig again.

    Can this still be persistent in 2.2.2 ?

    I have installed 2.,2.2 and encounter now that :

    although I have eliminated a domain in the interface, It won't let me remake the site, because the does allready exist !

    Should i also downgrade ?.

    Is the domain still in the recycle bin?

    Please apply the above hotfix. It works for ISPConfig 2.2.2 too.

    Did you do some manual changes to the ISPConfig database?
  9. comedit

    comedit New Member

    I might have done a database update (i am running in "discover how it all works mode", but nothing manual in the database itself

    So you advice firstdowgrade PHP and then empty the bin ?

    I just downgraded. But it's complaining about XML stuff. Are they just warnings and can be safely ignored?

    You can ignore these warnings, as long as you dont want to use the remoting plugin.

    Are you using the ISPConfig dev version with the remoting plugin installed?
  16. danielos

    danielos New Member

    Yes I am using the latest dev version with the latest remoting plugin.

    I took the old (5.1.2) and replaced the updated one (5.0.4, the hotfix one), and restarted ispconfig. No seg fault and the tool menu appears again.
