Hello. After doing a 'service httpd restart', prior to which my apache-fp
was working just fine and dandy, then, after restarting httpd everytime I
try to connect to :80 or :8090 (fp admin) it just adds a [notice] line about
a seg fault. I have no idea why this jsut suddenly started happening. I even
tried rebootign the whole system to no avail.

I had recently (about a week ago) used apt-get to do a system wide upgrade,
but apache was working just fine all week till today, and I had restarted
httpd a few times this week, so I don't think it was a result of that.

The system is a RH 7.3 which was upgraded recently with Apt.
uname -a
Linux SRLINUX 2.4.18-3 #1 Thu Apr 18 07:31:07 EDT 2002 i686 unknown

Apache info:
   Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) (Red-Hat/Linux)
   PHP/4.1.2 mod_perl/1.26

I also have Apache::ASP too.

I had mod_ssl-2.8.12-3 but I down graded back to my original to see if that
would fix it but nothing changed.

Doing a tail -f on error_log:

I even tried commenting out different modules (mod_*) entries like ssl, php,
perl, dav, etc.

Thank for any help.
