Description gbromov 2014-12-01 20:42:56 UTC

On amd64 version, when using php56-fileinfo extension, and apache have both mod_dav_svn and mod_php5 modules loaded, it crashes with Segmentation fault (11).

Steps to Reproduce: 

1. Install fresh amd64 version of 10.1-RELEASE, apache24,  mod_dav_svn, mod_php56, php56-fileinfo

2. Write a simple php script in apache DocumentRoot
$fi = new finfo(FILEINFO_MIME);
echo $fi->file('/etc/rc.conf');

3. Open it in a browser.

Actual Results:

Empty page (No data received) is shown, and httpd.core is saved on the server.

Additional Information:

* If I comment out

LoadModule dav_svn_module     libexec/apache24/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module   libexec/apache24/mod_authz_svn.so

entries in httpd.conf the page opens successfully.

* Even when


is the only entry in /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini, it doesn't seem to makes any difference

* It seems to be working fine on i386 system.

Fix Summary and assign.
Comment 2 Willem Jan Withagen 2015-09-17 07:32:45 UTC
I'm running php55, and ran into the same problem.
Removing the dav_svn_module is the solution for this.

Probably the dav_svn_module needs to be rebuild as well, to be compatible with the newly installed mod_php core.

This is in the mod_dav_svn package.

But doing so did not resolve the issue.
So there is a real mismatch between mod_fileinfo and mod_dav_svn
Comment 3 Jan Strobl 2016-03-17 13:22:09 UTC
I'm just facing the same problem, in latest ports version (i.e. php56-5.6.19). Googling led me to this:

It seems to be the same problem, the bundled libmagic conflicts with system one. 

The mechanism and also suggested patch is described there. As this could be relevant to only OSs with system-included libmagic (like FreeBSD) and not for majority, maybe we shouldn't wait for official PHP correction and create a local patch in ports?

Maintainer feedback?

Disable libmagic on subversion

I do believe patching php should be the better way forward, how-ever with a lack of alternatives...

Quirk (PoC) of disabling libmagic on subversion will cause the error to go away. Since libmagic is marked optional [1] there should be no harm disabling it.
