View Full Version : PHP not updating

07-29-2008, 02:22 AM
I am using custombuild 1.2 Beta to update 5.2.5 (CLI) to 5.2.6 (CGI).

./build php5-cgi

The script shows that the installation is complete

PHP 5.2.6 with suPHP Installed.

However, when I check the version on PHP it shows

[root@vps custombuild]# php -v
PHP 5.2.5 (cli) (built: Feb 29 2008 16:39:01)

Can anyone help me to identify why PHP is not being installed? I am trying to install FastCGI, but the tutorial for installing fast-cgi (by tillo) on DA suggests installing PHP - CGI.

Thanks for any help.

Why don't you read Custombuild FAQ (http://directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19221)?

/usr/local/php5/bin/php-cgi -v

/usr/local/php5/bin/php-cgi -v

I did read it, but perhaps not that well. Thanks a lot for the help with this. This helped me debug my actual goal of running my site on fastcgi.

I followed this thread http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showpost.php?p=124878&postcount=450 (except #4. I don't want Xcache at this time.)

At the end when I comment

#LoadModule php5_module /usr/lib/apache/libphp5.so
and uncomment

LoadModule fastcgi_module /usr/lib/apache/mod_fastcgi.so

and restart apache, it stops interpreting PHP and forces a download. The download file contains the PHP code as text.

Once again thanks for your help.

More on the problem:

The browser tries to open the PHP file with an application named


Here is the FastCGI config (/etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-fcgi.conf)

<IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
ScriptAlias /fcgi5 /opt/fcgi/php5.fcgi

<Directory "/opt/fcgi">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -Includes
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
SetHandler fastcgi-script

AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi

FastCgiIpcDir /tmp
FastCgiWrapper /opt/fcgi/suexec
FastCgiConfig -singleThreshold 100 -killInterval 300 -autoUpdate -idle-timeout 240 -pass-header HTTP_AUTHORIZATION

AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .inc .php .cphp .phtml .php5

Action application/x-httpd-php5 /fcgi5


And /opt/fcgi/php5.fcgi contains

export PHPRC
exec /usr/local/php5/bin/php-cgi

Check /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-php-handlers.conf.

Check /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-php-handlers.conf.

It has

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .inc .php .php3 .php4 .php5 .phtml
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Does this need to be deleted?
