I just installed WordPress 2.1 on RHEL4 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 3)) (redhat-release-4ES-4.1).
When I enter the admin section and click on "Manage" and then the link for "Categories", I get nothing. Depending on what browser I'm using it tries to download the php file, or tells me there's an error.
So, I got to the web server log and I see this:
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x0a14e470 ***
[Fri Feb 16 15:25:09 2007] [notice] child pid 20994 exit signal Aborted (6)
From which I infer that the Apache mod that handles PHP files is being aborted entirely, resulting in the php file not being processed and Apache just trying to serve it up as a file with a php extension.
So, is this some incompatibility with the version of PHP I'm running, or glibc? I would assume that something in the /wp-admin/categories.php file is blowing up something in my Apache module or in glibc resulting in the process meeting an unexpected and unsavory end.
I'm going to try looking for updates to see if this fixes the problem, but surely someone else has encountered this already?
Thanks in advance...
