Topic: php 5.3.0 problem

via yum our otherwise standard RH 5.3 server got updated to PHP 5.2.3 yesterday, after this i got serious problems with Apache, error message was:
[Tue Aug 11 15:51:27 2009] [crit] [client 80.169.42.186] (24)Too many open files: /var/www/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable, referer:

There was never an .htaccess in this location, which is the httpd root, even putting on in place did not change anything.

Another error somewho related to this (because it did not occur before and after i fixed it) was:

BaseDAO::getRecords() [<a href='basedao.getrecords'>basedao.getrecords</a>]: Timezone database is corrupt - this should *never* happen!

After i restart of httpd it worked fine for a couple of minutes before coming up with the first error message again (which was triggered by basically any request, while the second one only came up occasionally). The output to the browser was kind of changing, sometime you got a no access to directory (as if no index file exists), sometimes the stylesheet did not load, or only part of the content got displayed.

A rollback to the php-5.2.10-1 version fixed the problem for me but i thought i let you know (still appreciate your efforts).

Re: php 5.3.0 problem

php 5.2.3 ? I think you want to say 5.3.0 ?

PHP 5.3.1 (coming soon) will probably fix a lot of small bug.
