WorkingSoftware.com.au:
Configuring PHP4 and PHP5 to run concurrently on FreeBSD
Jun 25, 2007 @ 10:50:00

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
