Sorry for the interruption to service this morning. I updated PHP to 4.3.6 yesterday, and fell foul of a bug which causes Apache to crash on restart with an error of “[notice] seg fault or similar nasty error detected in the parent process”.
After a bit of muttering I found a suitable patch on the FreeBSD ports CVS and everything in the garden is lovely again.
I had been worried that it might be down to the Turck MMCache PHP accelerator/optimizer that I also installed yesterday, but no, that seems fine.
Enough techie talk for now….
