php55-opcache, php56-opcache: crash when built with Xcode 10

Reported by: hostep (Pieter Hoste) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Component: ports Version: 2.5.4

Port: php55-opcache, php56-opcache



Today I finally decided to upgrade to macOS Mojave and re-install all the ports I need.

I still have to support various projects running on PHP 5.5 unfortunately, and I noticed it no longer properly works on Mojave when php55-opcache is installed and enabled.

My setup is with Apache 2.4 => php55-fpm => php scripts
CLI-wise, everything is fine. But when attempting to open a php script through the webserver, it crashes.

The php-fpm.log says

[23-Feb-2019 18:27:19] WARNING: [pool www] child 95563 exited on signal 11 (SIGSEGV) after 3.393581 seconds from start

Here's part of a crash log I found in /Library/DiagnosticReports:

It appears this is a know problem in Homebrew and FreeBSD and already got fixed in those projects:

I have this problem on PHP 5.5, but it might as well occur on 5.6 or 5.4 and 5.3 (I haven't tested these). On PHP 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2 it does not occur.

Any chance a fix can be included in Macports for this problem?

I would totally understand if this gets closed without resolution, as PHP 5.x is no longer supported.
We can work around the problem by disabling the opcache module in PHP. Just posting this to see if there is interest or maybe for other people who run against the same problem so they can find a solution quicker.

Summary: php55 with opcache on mojave no longer works properlyphp55-opcache, php56-opcache: crash when built with Xcode 10

Thanks for reporting this problem and the solution that others are using.

I can confirm the problem on High Sierra with the Apache 2 handler using PHP 5.5 and 5.6 when opcache is compiled with MacPorts clang 7.0 (and presumably 6.0, according to the other reports) and I can confirm that the proposed patch fixes it. I don't see the problem when opcache is compiled using the clang in Xcode 9.4.1, but presumably I would see the problem if I upgraded to Xcode 10. PHP 5.4 and earlier and 7.0 and later don't seem to be affected.

I'll get it fixed in MacPorts, but it would be a good idea to report this problem to the developers of PHP so that if they do make another release of the 5.6 branch they can include this fix. Would you report it to them?

comment:4 Changed 2 years ago by hostep (Pieter Hoste)

Thank you for this very quick fix Ryan!

I can confirm that updating to the latest version of php55 & php55-opcache in my case fixes the issue.

As for reporting the issue to PHP maintainers, I'm afraid we are too late for that, since PHP version 5.6 is no longer supported since 31 Dec 2018:

Thanks again!

comment:5 Changed 2 years ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Glad to hear it worked for you too!

I know that 5.6 is no longer supported since December 2018. That didn't stop them from releasing 5.6.40 in January 2019 with the note "There may be additional release if we discover important security issues that warrant it". But if they don't know about this problem, they certainly won't include a fix for it in such a possible future release. So I would recommend reporting it to them so they have the option of fixing it.
