Im trying to follow falko exellent howto - on installling ISPCONFIG 3 on Centos everyting has worked till now.

Im at this point -
cd /tmp

cd suphp-0.7.0/
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-1-config --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-apache-user=apache --with-setid-mode=owner --with-php=/usr/bin/php-cgi --with-logfile=/var/log/httpd/suphp_log --enable-SUPHP_USE_USERGROUP=yes
make <---- here is where I receive the errors
make install <---- here is where I receive the errors

and I get this when i try to restart apache

Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 210 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/suphp.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/ into server: /etc/httpd/modules/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas to get me moving ...

well found that
yum install mod_suphp worked

after i edited
vi /etc/suphp.conf

as Falko says in
The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.2 [ISPConfig 3] - Page 5

moving on, so lets see what else happens :D

I had the same problem and was also able to run yum install on suphp, but I ran into problems after that. The problems were blank webpages from testing webmail, phpmyadmin and the initial page for ISPConfig.

This was on CentOS 5.3 x86_64. Turns out this error was because I only had the i386 install of apr-devel (I think configure was looking for an x86_64 header file that didn't exist from the i386 install). Running "yum install apr-devel" got the x86_64 version, and then I was able to successfully use ./configure, make and make install on suphp after that.

Note, since I had already run yum install suphp, I had to delete the yum installed version of /etc/httpd/conf.d/suphp.conf and create a new one with only the line from the tutorial ("LoadModule suphp_modules modules/").

BTW, the newest version of ISPConfig ( seems to work on CentOS 5.3 if you follow the CentOS 5.2 instructions. (and replace i386 with x86_64 if you use 64 bit).

Hope this helps anyone else who runs into the same problem.

Thanks for the great tutorials!

Had same problem as topic starter...

The post of stottle made the How-to working again!:)

sorry to resurrect the dead, but i have wasted 2 days and longs on this.

Had the same problem as stottle, php woulnd parse correctly after running the Perfect Server Centos ISPConfig. I was getting plank white pages for webmail and phpmyadmin.

Solution, from above, edit suphp.conf, comment everything out except 'LoadModule suphp_modules modules/'

I am getting the same error.
I tried


yum install mod_suphp
There is no package available.
I know it is old thread.

I m now using CentOS 6

Which repo did you use to install mod_suphp ?


falko 29th November 2011 23:47

mod_suphp is available in the RPMforge repo, so you need to enable this first.

agriz 30th November 2011 00:14

can i get the url to enable RPMforge repo?
