Here under some stuff to dos apache + php just through an htaccess.
* With .htaccess method :
If you have into your php.ini -> safe_mode = On
Simply put a .htaccess file on the root directory of your website
with this content :
php_value session.save_path /var/www/somewherehowexist
Apache segfault with :
[Fri Sep 30 10:33:11 2005] [notice] child pid 17743 exit signal
Trace/breakpoint trap (5)
There was a bug in the apache2handler SAPI, sapi_apache2.c file, that
made this segfault here possible, the bug now is fixed upstream and
5.1.0 final, 4.4.1 final and the next 5.0.X release will have the patch.
Also work with session.save_path into a VirtualHost.
