Error in cronjob (segmentation fault)

(Danya ISS) #1


I just got the following error e-mail from my cronjob:

Cron maxstats@server01 /home/maxstats/public_html/piwik/misc/cron/ > /dev/null
/home/maxstats/public_html/piwik/misc/cron/ line 71: 25280 Segmentation fault $CMD

What sort of error is it, and is it a serious error? Can I fix it or is it an error from Piwik itself?

Thanks in froward!

If the PHP runtime seg faults, then it’s a PHP bug. You might be able to fix it by rebuilding PHP using the latest stable version from

In some cases, it could be a buggy libc. Edit misc/cron/, changing:



        MALLOC_CHECK_=1 $CMD

If that doesn’t work, try repairing your MySQL database.
