apache 2.4 breaks with the default build PHP5. PHP is by default not compiled to be thread safe, and apache refuses to run, if the default configuration of PHP. In 2.2, the MPM threaded worker was an optional module for apache, and in 2.4 its now default, and part of apache's core.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
php 5.5.10-1
apache 2.4.7-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
install LAMP stack as described here:

watch as apache fails to start.

The Fix:

replace PHP with PHP_zts, which has the FPM patch, which allows PHP to work with apache, in default configuration, once more. Tested and confirmed to work as a drop in replacement for the standard PHP package.
This task depends upon
