Re: Apache (Sarge) broken -- anybody have a quick fix ?
Mine segfaults on cold-start but only with php4 module loaded and
have done so for quite a while.
I figured out that, at least in my case, this works ...
I comment out the php4 module and 'apachectl start',
then uncomment it and 'apachectl restart' ...
All modules, and binaries are from packages.
Hopes this helps...
