    Hi

    I have had a look where Till suggested that you run php4 as a cgi object.

    I have postnuke 0.7.63 installed on a webserver and want to transfer it to a new server with ispconfig.

    It is just not possible to run php4 as php5 is installed as default.

    Is the only solution to run php4 as described in a thread here today ?

    Why not make ispconfig configured, so you can tick php4 or php5 off in the controlpanel for the specific domain, then it would really help you solve a lot problems.

    Sincerely

    Mogens

    This is assumption not correct. I recently installed it for a customer: php as mod_php + php4 as cgi.

    1) Install the php4-cgi package from your linux distribution.

    2) To enable PHP4 in a website, add these two lines in the
    apache directives field of the website:

    Action php4-cgi /cgi-bin/php
    AddHandler php4-cgi .php


    And then make sure that the following options are disabled:

    CGI-Scripts
    Standard CGIs
    PHP Scripts
    PHP Safemode

    Hi,

    I have a debiab etch server installed after the "perfect setup"-HowTo.
    I Installed php4-cgi with apt-get intall php4-cgi

    Added the following to the apache directives field of the website

    Action php4-cgi /cgi-bin/php
    AddHandler php4-cgi .php

    And disabled the follwing options within the specific web:

    CGI-Scripts
    Standard CGIs
    PHP Scripts
    PHP Safemode

    Now all I see is the php source code. Did I miss something?

    This will only work depends if you have a binary named php in your global cgi-bin directory.

    For example the php4 binary might be named php4 or php4-cgi and not php, so the rsulting code will be:

    Action php4-cgi /cgi-bin/php4
    AddHandler php4-cgi .php

    or:

    Action php4-cgi /cgi-bin/php4-cgi
    AddHandler php4-cgi .php

    Okay, there is a /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php4 on my system, so I added

    Action php4-cgi /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php4
    AddHandler php4-cgi .php

    But now I get a 404: Fehler 404 - Datei nicht gefunden!

    Also tried

    Action php4-cgi /cgi-bin/php4

    as I'm not sure if I have to use the full path there, but the same result...

    There is also a /usr/bin/php4-cgi but this isn't working either.

    HTML-files are shown correctly...

    The error log says: [Fri Jun 22 15:48:13 2007] [error] [client 74.6.28.226] File does not exist: /var/www/web17/web/cgi-bin

    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/

    in apache2.conf
