Run different PHP versions on virtual hosts in apache 2.2

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


How can I configure Apache 2.2 server to have PHP 5.3 in all virtual hosts, except one virtual host in which to run PHP 4.4? I have all the php and .dll files.

In the middle of the article you find an example VHost configuration:

# Port-based virtual hosting: every php install uses a vhost on a different port
Listen 8447
Listen 8423


BASE virtualhost


set up the main php version we're using <VirtualHost *:80> LoadModule php5_module "E:/php5/php5apache2_2.dll" PHPIniDir "E:/php5" php_value extension_dir "E:/php5/ext/" AddType application/x-httpd-php .php AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:8447> # it would be handy to use php_value directives, but CGI versions of php will not grok them, # so we rely on different php.ini SetEnv PHPRC "E:/php4/" ScriptAlias /php447/ "E:/php4/" Action application/x-httpd-php447 "/php447/php.exe" AddType application/x-httpd-php447 .php .inc # apache 2.2 denies access to the php cgi executable, unless it is explicitly granted <Directory "E:/php4/"> <Files "php.exe"> Allow from all </Files> </Directory> </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:8423> SetEnv PHPRC "E:/php423/" ScriptAlias /php423/ "E:/php423/" Action application/x-httpd-php423 "/php423/php.exe" AddType application/x-httpd-php423 .php .inc <Directory "E:/php423/"> <Files "php.exe"> Allow from all </Files> </Directory> </VirtualHost>
