Re: FW: Apache, Cosign, PHP, Oracle client and PostgreSQL (fwd)

Can someone on this list aid us in working through this issue? We are trying to use apache 2.0.52, php 5.0.2 to access an oracle database. We are using the apache2 filter from cosign-1.6.2 for authentication. The base operating system is Redhat Enterprise with the apache and php rpm's removed and the packages above compiled from source.

The webserver tends to be unstable and will start to throw 'service unavailable' errors after operating some time. Has anyone else had any similiar issues, or can anyone shed any light on this issue? Apache seems to run fine without the cosign activated. Thanks.

We are using Apache 2.0.52, php 5.0.2, and cosign 1.6.2 (with the apache2 filter), and Oracle 10g for the client libraries. Everything except the Oracle software was compiled from source, and php was compiled with the --with-oci8 flag (among others).

The cosign will work for a while after apache is started, but will eventually start giving 'server not available' errors after a while. Http requests are forcibly redirected to the TLS/cosign-enabled virtual site via mod_rewrite.

The SPG site:

was run on apache / php / oracle client talking to an oracle server on
Solaris protected by cosign for about 2 years. A few months ago, we
transferred it to UMCE Linux. How are they not playing nicely together?
What's happening, or what error messages are you seeing?

Have you found that some packages will play together well, but when you
add something else into the mix, that it breaks? This shouldn't
necessarily be an issue with redhat.

If you feel it's specifically a cosign issue, you can send email to
