Installing mod_php and mod_perl in a VDS causes apache to core dump


This issue is a SD 3.5 bug, which does not exist in SD 3.7.

The problem is in a very special interaction of mod_php + mod_perl + connecting to mysql from mod_perl script.
If a VDS owner MUST have php and mod_perl and MySql connection from modperl cgi, he can disable the mysql module support in php:
1. vi VDS/lib/php.ini
2. comment the "" line
This will solve the core dumps problem.

Another workarround is working with regular perl cgi scripts, which work correctly and do not create apache core dumps.
