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 "extension=mysql.so" 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.
