apache-2.4.10 dies in reload

Bug #1416875 reported by David Favor on 2015-02-01
This bug affects 6 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
redland-bindings (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

net3# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.10
Release: 14.10
Codename: utopic

Different than https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bug/669005 which has to do with php5-curl. I deinstalled php5-curl + had no effect.

Using trace8 provides no additional detail.

Unable to get apache to generate a core dump, even after reading many articles + trying many command line incantations.

Someone tell me how to get a core dump + I'll post the stack trace of failure.

Have narrowed problem down to a php module.

a2dismod php5 + restart + reload works, so now onto figuring out which php5 module is culprit, using apt-get purge on each ph5 module, to ensure all traces of related module cruft is removed.

Problem module is php5-librdf, so someone please update this bug report with how to collect a core dump + I'll attach the data for this bug.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

Reassinging to redland-bindings as you've identified the problem to be there. Sorry, I don't have instructions to give you to collect a core dump for Apache specifically.

affects: apache2 (Ubuntu) → redland-bindings (Ubuntu)
