Lighty doesn't like that combination. It seems that on socket connect, lighty crashes.
Here is a small strace.log

Is duplicate of Bug #1843: luasockets and lightys buffer_init are not prefixedWontfix2008-12-12

I'm trying to find the exact reason for the sigsegv, it is not the connect, but the first call to functions like add, set, get. If i have more details i'll add them here


Updated by Terminar almost 13 years ago

Ok, it doesn't seem to be in the Connect, crash happenes when socket:send is used,,, I have attached the Memcache module the testfile i used as "magnet" and the valgrind output. You need to install luasocket to use this.

i have this problem too see atached valgrind and strace


Updated by tx over 12 years ago

in addition with some peoples on irc we made additional tests with
stand alone lua and luasocket

works like charm

That is obviously not a lighttpd bug. In fact memcache.lua uses luasockets. Luasockets has a buffer_init function that is called when sending data. Unfortunatly lighty also has a buffer_init method which overwrites luasocket's buffer_int method. Therefore the buffer get's not initialized correct and when the process tries to access buf->tm it fails with a null pointer (sigsegv).

In my opinion that is not a lighttpd bug, but in fact is a result of bad naming in luasockets as a library should at least prefix it's exported methods.

I suggest to close this ticket.

  • Status changed from New to Wontfix
  • Patch available set to No

See #1843


Updated by darix almost 11 years ago

this needs a patch in lua or renaming our function
