From Iain Dooley on WorkingSoftware.com.au today, there's a new tutorial covering the installation of PHP4 and PHP5 onto a FreeBSD server.
So, briefly here is my little recipe for getting PHP4 and PHP5 to run concurrently on FreeBSD using Apache 2.2 and mod_proxy.
He points out one method that's been posted to get this all working, but notes that there are a few issues he found with it. That's the point of this post - to rectify and solve those problems to have you on your way to a happily working PHP4/PHP5 installation.
His guide is broken up into the key steps:
- Compiling with mod_proxy from FreeBSD ports
- Installing another Apache instance
- PHP Installation
- Configuring and running Apache
- and a bug, Bug 37770, he came across where the proxy would just stop working
