Debugging Apache

Problem: Apache quit working

Solution: Debug via gdb httpd2

Apache quit working after some network changes. The error log contained numerous

child pid 20038 exit signal Segmentation fault (11) lines.

Running gdb httpd2 along with a backtrace (bt) revealed the function / line of code throwing the error. The problem was quickly tracked down to the LDAP config (ldap.conf).
