Re: [EP-tech] Apache crashes with a segmentation fault

We experienced this issue running EPrints on Ubuntu 18.04 and we "resolved" it by switching to mpm_prefork, but I'd prefer to understand the cause of the crashes (which do happen sometimes still) and the option to run EPrints under mpm_event.  I don't think that expat is the issue, since we're not running any python scripts on that server.  LibXML is a different story though, as EPrints does use that.   

We have the following:
ldconfig -p | grep -i libxml

        libxml2.so.2 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxml2.so.2
        libxml2.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxml2.so
        libxmlsec1.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxmlsec1.so.1
        libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1

But EPrints is reporting that it is using this:
	XML::LibXML 2.0128 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.26/XML/LibXML.pm

Does that mean that the LibXML being used by EPrints on our server is a local installation component rather than a system one?   I suppose the broader question is: what is the best practice; which LibXML library should be used by EPrints on Ubuntu 18.04?

This mayne means you've two expat or libxml, one from the system and another from a local installation? If you use only the system version, you shouldn't have this problem.

This can have some info:


but basically remove any self compiled component and use system one, or recompile them again.
