    Question Enabling php for directory in Apache

    In apache, how can i enable php for a particular directory?

  2. #2

    Thumbs up try this full solution

    1. gzip -d httpd-2_0_NN.tar.gz
    2. tar xvf httpd-2_0_NN.tar
    3. gunzip php-NN.tar.gz
    4. tar -xvf php-NN.tar
    5. cd httpd-2_0_NN
    6. ./configure --enable-so
    7. make
    8. make install

    Now you have Apache 2.0.NN available under /usr/local/apache2,
    configured with loadable module support and the standard MPM prefork.
    To test the installation use your normal procedure for starting
    the Apache server, e.g.:
    /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start
    and stop the server to go on with the configuration for PHP:
    /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl stop.

    9. cd ../php-NN

    10. Now, configure your PHP. This is where you customize your PHP
    with various options, like which extensions will be enabled. Do a
    ./configure --help for a list of available options. In our example
    we'll do a simple configure with Apache 2 and MySQL support. Your
    path to apxs may differ, in fact, the binary may even be named apxs2 on
    your system.

    ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql

    11. make
    12. make install

    If you decide to change your configure options after installation,
    you only need to repeat the last three steps. You only need to
    restart apache for the new module to take effect. A recompile of
    Apache is not needed.

    Note that unless told otherwise, 'make install' will also install PEAR,
    various PHP tools such as phpize, install the PHP CLI, and more.

    13. Setup your php.ini

    cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/lib/php.ini

    You may edit your .ini file to set PHP options. If you prefer having
    php.ini in another location, use --with-config-file-path=/some/path in
    step 10.

    If you instead choose php.ini-recommended, be certain to read the list
    of changes within, as they affect how PHP behaves.

    14. Edit your httpd.conf to load the PHP module. The path on the right hand
    side of the LoadModule statement must point to the path of the PHP
    module on your system. The make install from above may have already
    added this for you, but be sure to check.

    For PHP 4:

    LoadModule php4_module modules/

    For PHP 5:

    LoadModule php5_module modules/

    15. Tell Apache to parse certain extensions as PHP. For example,
    let's have Apache parse the .php extension as PHP. You could
    have any extension(s) parse as PHP by simply adding more, with
    each separated by a space. We'll add .phtml to demonstrate.

    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml

    It's also common to setup the .phps extension to show highlighted PHP
    source, this can be done with:

    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

    16. Use your normal procedure for starting the Apache server, e.g.:

    /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start
    PS 1) when u try to install php package remeber to remove all its depencies
    if depencies are not resolved this will alwayz through u message
    rpm for c , c++, phython, perl and xml should also be installed
    2) Note that u hav enable mysql with php in above example but in practicle u may need it to compile and configure php with other modules too

    3) If ur using mysql try to make a mksql account for the same DO NOT USE ROOT ACCOUNT IN SCRIPT FOR ACCESSIN THE DATABASES

    Thanks a lot for the whole solution, its very kind of you, but i've php already installed for apache.All i wanted to know is that, is it possible to enable php for just a particular directory e.g. /usr/share, in apache and not to allow a global access for it.
