[EP-tech] Apache crashes with a segmentation fault

In its 10th year of being in use, our digital library (harvested in
particular by Europeana) was hit by the problem causes by the automatic
upgrade of Debian stable. It may be the very problem described at


         Possible cause: apache linked against "expat" library. If you
         did not install apache from source then it is possible it was
         linked against the "expat" library. The problem arrises that it
         is also linked against mod_perl and when we use the XML::Parser
         module, that is also linked against expat. 2 expat's in one
         apache make it seg-fault.

What is the best way to proceed?

We will appreciate very much your help.

Best regards
