Description Pascal Christen 2018-11-06 12:37:16 UTC

We just started to test PHP7.3 on our develpoment Server. Now I get the following issue with PHP7.3 on FreeBSD 11.2:

[#]/usr/local/php73/bin/php index.php 
Bus error (core dumped)

This problem just happens on FreeBSD. I made the same wordpress (default installation with DB-Setup) on Ubuntu 18 with PHP7.3 wihtout any issues.

Can you guys reproduce that?

Comment 1 Jochen Neumeister freebsd_committer 2018-11-06 13:14:33 UTC
You use the wordpress from the wp site?
When you use the wordpress port (www/wordpress), do you get the same error?
is this error only with wordpress? Or with other CMS? Typo3 for example.
Comment 2 Pascal Christen 2018-11-06 13:19:41 UTC
(In reply to Jochen Neumeister from comment #1)

Yes I used the latest Wordpress from the https://wordpress.org/download/ site,

Let me check other CMS later this week - sorry!

Hi Pascal :-)

Thanks for the testing. Which version did you test it with? The day before yesterday, I committed version RC5. The bug was still with BETA2. I will also build and test a WM at the weekend. Let's hope the PHP developers fix that soon.

Hi. Just verified it with the RC5. Same problems...

Hey Pascal. Thanks for the testing and the link. I hope the PHP team finds a patch soon. I will keep that in mind. I take the PR to me, because TZ is very busy at the moment.
Comment 8 Pascal Christen 2018-11-12 08:25:44 UTC
(In reply to Jochen Neumeister from comment #7)

Ok thanks. But personally I'm not sure if we're facing the same issue with the "tried to allocate 12298126926392233984 bytes" and the wordpress error (See gdb output in #6). What do you think? related problems or 2 diffrent?
Comment 9 Pascal Christen 2018-12-03 10:49:09 UTC
Do we have any updates on this case? Do you need any additional information?
Comment 10 Torsten Zuehlsdorff freebsd_committer 2018-12-19 08:42:44 UTC
Hello Pascal,

i'm taking over the PR, but most likely i won't have much time until next year for it.

Still lets harvest some important information:
- Does this issue persist after the Release of 7.3.0?
- Is there any PHP Bug entry? 
- Can you provide a new debug trace?

From the trace you already added it looks like a bug in the trim() code. But before digging into the code, i want to make sure nothing had changed since then. :D

Do you know any other user having the same issue? At the moment you are the only one. 

Comment 11 Oliver H 2018-12-19 15:18:04 UTC
(In reply to Torsten Zuehlsdorff from comment #10)

Thanks for taking on this report. We have also been seeing this issue, so to answer your questions:

1. Yes, this issue is still there on PHP 7.3 release
2. No PHP bug entry that I can see
3. New stack trace (for WordPress 4.9.9) below. Apologies it isn't compiled with debug on, hope it's still useful. It at least shows that zif_trim is still involved.

Core was generated by `php index.php'.
Program terminated with signal 10, Bus error.

This is on FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p6. PHP was compiled from ports today on our standard poudriere server.
Comment 12 mark burdett 2018-12-26 20:22:45 UTC
I didn't try WordPress but I saw similar issues with another PHP app on FreeBSD 11.2 and PHP 7.3.0

After upgrading to FreeBSD 12.0 the issue was resolved.

Comment 13 Pascal Christen 2018-12-27 13:12:30 UTC
Still having issues with php7.3 on freebsd 11.2

If you guys also have problem try to push these bugs:

Hope we'll find a solution soon! :)
Comment 15 Torsten Zuehlsdorff freebsd_committer 2019-01-07 11:07:55 UTC

from now on i have back a regular time to cope with this issues.

The linked PRs look promising. Just to be sure:

Pascal, you did apply the linked patch and it works?

If so, i will add the patch, so we do not need to wait until the next release.

Comment 16 Oliver H 2019-01-07 11:17:32 UTC
(In reply to Torsten Zuehlsdorff from comment #15)

I tried the patch from #14 and can confirm it resolved the problem here. However I don't yet know what (if any) performance impact removing ifunc support has since it's currently a very lightly loaded server.
Comment 17 Pascal Christen 2019-01-07 16:51:55 UTC

Hi Thorsten

Yes it works but don't know about side effects.
