#5228: 500 Error on Install or Upgrade of 2.3 on FreeBSD
 Reporter:  KentWA   |       Owner:  anonymous               
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new                     
 Priority:  high     |   Milestone:  2.3.1                   
Component:  General  |     Version:  2.3                     
 Severity:  normal   |    Keywords:  500 FreeBSD Server error
 A 500 Error is generated whenever attempting to run install.php when
 installing or upgrade.php when upgrading on a FreeBSD server. I have
 attempted this on 4 different servers with different hosting companies.
 Configuration of main server is Running on FreeBSD 6.1 and PHP 5.2.2 with
 the Suhosin Patch in a shared server enviroment. I have raised the
 available PHP max memory to as high as 64MB.

 The upgrades were done from a fresh install of plain vanilla 2.2.3
 installs. The clean installs were done on new domains that were created
 specificly for Wordpress and had not been setup prior to installation.

 Server log file reports:
 ALERT - canary mismatch on efree() - heap overflow detected (attacker
 '', file '/hsphere/local/home/kentogle/kentogletree.com/wp-
 includes/taxonomy.php', line 11)

 There are several Support Board threads covering people with the same
 problem, one I started is:
