Well it's broken for sure if php -v dumps .. and if php cli is broken
most likely the module is too, which may well explain apache crashing ..

Sorry, I'm on digests here which can take half a day unless you cc me,
so I hope you've made some progress by now .. no, nothing obvious, but:

I'd be trying to separate these two problems: save configs, comment out
all of the php stuff in httpd.conf and get your upgraded apache up and
running properly first, then refetch / reinstall / reconfigure php5?

I commented out all extensions and then brought them in one by one.
The one which was causing core dumps was I had a few
others that I had to comment as otherwise they were giving me trouble
(because of the simplexml being commented out I guess):,,,,

I am not really worried about these. I am not really sure if I will
ever need them. So fine for the time being. php -v does not produce
core dumps and I can start apache.

There's only one problem left to be solved - files with php extensions
are not really shown in browser until I click RELOAD. Files with html
extensions are shown without the need to reload. Thanks for your
