php does segmentation fault

Help! PHP is crashing when I go something very simple
and straightforward.

I downloaded PHP 5.0.4 and compiled it with MySQL support.
I checked that my database was up and running and that
the table I wanted to access was accessible from
the mysql prompt.

I then ran the following PHP file, first through my
webserver and then at the command line, with the
same result each time: PHP segfaulted.

The file:

<html><body>
<table><tr>
<?
mysql_connect(localhost,"myuser","mypass");
# other stuff here
?>
</table>
<hr>
HTML that never appears in the result.
</html>

PHP segfaults during the connect.

Can anyone tell me if this is a known bug?
Can anyone tell me which would be a more stable version
of PHP?

Thanks

Did you look on php.net? Since they produce the modules, it's the first place I
go when I have this kind of problem...

Run the script manually with "PHP-cli" and use a debugger (gdb or any other
you may have) and see what you get out from there.

There is no such thing.

Do you mean the commandline version of php? I've already tried that,
as I pointed out in the original post.

It's not in the bug list.

I find it strange that people even use software that is this
buggy.

Run it within a debugger as I asked.

There's more than just the bugs list. Did you check the mail lists, for instance?

But I've never seen any program that's relatively complex which doesn't have
some bugs. Developers do their best to get all the bugs out - but there are
hundreds of thousands of lines of code in PHP, and there's no way to get every
one out. That's one of the reasons for updates. Heck - the last OS I know
about that was bug free was Dos 1.0 - and I'm not sure about that!

BTW, this includes your code. It should be

mysql_connect("localhost","myuser","mypass");
^ ^

Note the quotes around the string localhost.

I find it strange that an inexperienced user thinks the bug is in the
software which has millions of man hours of testing behind it and not
in their inexperience which probably has not given the problem more
than a few hours of testing.

No matter how bad the code is, i don't think it should be able to make
php segfault.. (For example, i've had scripts that would work perfectly
well with mod_php but segfaulted in the php-cli version...)
