Error in PHP 5.0.5 and Apache 1.3.34 - Cannot load libphp5.so


hello gurus!!
i need your help once again. i just installed apache, mysql, and php. after i installed php and tried to run apache, i get this error:

[root@projectff conf]# apachectl start
Syntax error on line 221 of /www/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /www/libexec/libphp5.so into server: /www/libexec/libphp5.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

line 221 in my httpd.conf states:
LoadModule php5_module libexec/libphp5.so

i have read similar thread like mine but i can't find the fix for this.

i am logged in as root and looked at the file /www/libexec/libphp5.so's permission. it has 755 on it. it is owned by root.

i am using: fedora core 4
installed: apache 1.3.34, mysql-5.0.15, and php-5.0.5.

anybody pls. help. thanks in advance.

It may be that the versions of Apache and PHP are so far apart, there are problems loading the lib. PHP5 is rather new (still in development, not mainstream yet I thought?) whereas Apache 1.3.x is fairly old school, Apache2.x has been considered stable for quite some time.

How did you install the applications, and if via RPM, where did you get the RPM's?

Cool

hello mc,
thanks for your reply. i am following this book about setting up lamp. they suggested to use apache 1.3 instead of apache 2 due to its stability. on php however, they suggested to use 5, due to its updated fixes. i have tried installing php 4 but same result. i am thinking of installing apache 2 with php 5, then apache 2 with php 4 if the previous does not work. i have another question for you: how do you uninstall an application? do you just write over it?

below are my steps for apache and php. i have them on scripts:

for apache:
cd /usr/local/src/webserver/apache_1.3.34
make distclean
./configure \
--prefix=/www \
--enable-module=so \
--enable-module=rewrite \
--enable-shared=rewrite \
--enable-module=setenvif \
--enable-shared=setenvif \
--enable-module=mime \
--enable-shared=mime \
--enable-module=mime_magic \
--enable-shared=mime_magic \
--enable-module=dir \
--enable-shared=dir \
--enable-module=auth \
--enable-shared=auth \
--enable-module=access \
--enable-shared=access \
--enable-module=alias \
--enable-shared=alias \
--enable-module=status \
--enable-shared=status \
--enable-module=userdir \
--enable-shared=userdir \
--enable-module=vhost_alias \
--enable-shared=vhost_alias \
--enable-module=env \
--enable-shared=env \
--enable-module=log_referer \
--enable-shared=log_referer \
--enable-module=log_config \
--enable-shared=log_config \
--enable-module=log_agent \
--enable-shared=log_agent \
--enable-module=headers \
--enable-shared=headers \
--enable-shared=max \
--enable-rule=SHARED_CORE

*****the last 2 lines i added in. it came from a php site suggestion in solving cannot load lib errors.

for php:
cd php-5.0.5
./configure \
--with-apxs=/www/bin/apxs \
--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql \
--enable-ftp \
--enable-trans-sid

i ran makes and make installs after the configure. any suggestion?

thanks!

Thank you so much for the post. The fix resolved my issue.
Actaully do you mind explain what does this "chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/local/apache/modules/libphp5.so" do and how does this resolve the issue?

Thanks,
xsqian

Hm.. good point.

Which means I do not know 100%.

What really happens is that SELinux security model blocks the access to certain parts and I am guessing libphp.so module of the apache is blocked by this.
So the command that I have found alters so php module is included into either exception or different group which receives proper access granted so apache server includes php module.

I did try to figure out a bit, but it is very complicated as you have understand SELinux.
So I gave up at a certain point.

It is not just a list of exceptions for certain program. The first thing I saw was understanding the state transitions so I didn't want to go to deep that this stage.
