Description Ben Noordhuis 2011-03-29 19:20:35 UTC
Quoting the commit log:

"Fix NULL pointer dereference in mod_rewrite.

Example config that triggers this behaviour.

  # RewriteEngine is off here
  RewriteMap crash int:crash
  <Location /crashme>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.+) ${crash:$1}

The RewriteMap directive must check the validity of its arguments
regardless of the value of RewriteEngine at the time of processing."

This bug exists in HEAD and (at least) Apache 2.2.14.

Comment 1 Ben Noordhuis 2011-03-29 20:47:13 UTC
Something this patch exposes is that registering mod_rewrite extension functions from the optional_fn_retrieve hook doesn't work because that runs after the config phase. Doing it from the pre-config hook works but is perhaps not the proper approach.

Thanks Ben -- commited to trunk in r1154808 and will propose for backport.
Comment 3 Stefan Fritsch 2011-09-17 15:27:19 UTC
fixed in r1164941 in 2.2.21
