Description Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-06-27 09:10:29 CEST
During update to PHP 5.4 php5-suhosin is removed but the config remains. This leads to an startup warning:

HP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library
'/usr/lib/php5/20100525/suhosin.so' - /usr/lib/php5/20100525/suhosin.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at 

We need to purge /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini during the update. Maybe we patch the new php5-common to delete this config file.

There is no simple solution for this and the same problem exists e.g. in standard Debian when updating from Squeeze to Wheezy:

During the upgrade to PHP 5.4 php5-suhosin is uninstalled due to the "Breaks: php5-suhosin (<< 0.9.34)" in php5-common. As such php5-suhosin remains installed in "rc" state with it's conffile in place:

root@master:~# dpkg -L php5-suhosin

- Simply removing /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini while it's still registered by dpkg is problematic

- There's no mechanism is Debian package relationship mechanics which allows to declare that a package is purged instead of simply removed

- AFAIK we don't have preup/postup scripts for components (otherwise we could run "dpkg --purge dpkg -L php5-suhosin" in postup)

Since the error is only visible in the apache.log and not during e.g. an Apache restart and is only logged if the PHP 5.4 packages are installed on UCS 3.2 I suggest we ignore this for 3.2 and run "dpkg --purge dpkg -L php5-suhosin" in the UCS 4.0 postup script (starting with UCS 4.0 everyone would otherwise see this in the logfiles.

That's OK for me if it is only a log message. Move to UCS 4.

(In reply to Moritz Muehlenhoff from comment #1)

> run "dpkg --purge dpkg -L
> php5-suhosin" in the UCS 4.0 postup script

Copy&paste error, tthat should of course read "dpkg --purge php5-suhosin"
Comment 4 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-10-16 17:25:11 CEST
added dpkg --purge php5-suhosin to postup.sh
Comment 5 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-11-04 12:58:58 CET
OK: r54551 ChangeLog
OK: r54548,54762 postup.sh
