    If I could impose on you, I could probally figure it out in a week or two but since ISP config is running so nicely I dont want to mess it up.

    httpd.conf :

    Code:
    <directory /var/www/*/web>
       # Options +Includes -Indexes
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        <files ~ "^\.ht">
        Deny from all
        </files>
    </directory>
    
    <directory /var/www/*/user/*/web>
       # Options +Includes -Indexes
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        <files ~ "^\.ht">
        Deny from all
        </files>
    </directory>
    
    <directory /var/www/*/cgi-bin>
       # Options ExecCGI -Indexes
        AllowOverride None
        AllowOverride Indexes AuthConfig Limit FileInfo
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        <files ~ "^\.ht">
        Deny from all
        </files>
    </directory>
    
    Include /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf
    
    and vhosts

    ISPConfig adds addhandler and filter records for PHP because some apache 2 versions need filters, some need addhandler and some need both.

    This is already solved in the next ISPConfig release, then you can select in the config.inc.php file which php handler shall be used.

    Hi till .. sorry to revoke this old threat, but i am looking for a solution "without" upgrading ispconfig , since i never walked through a complete successful upgrade and it alwas resulted in a fresh install .. what i dont like to redo again for now and my system is productive ..

    so i am looking for a way to implement a fix ..

    my problem with this issue goes a little bit further , since my apache used to crash regulary and always covered by this "unknown filter"-issue

    Check the function make_vhost() in /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/config.lib.php. You can change it so that it doesn't write the PHP filters to your Apache configuration.

    I'm sure that makes sense to you, but for someone who doesn't have the same technical knowledge you have, it is not really a solution.

    I'd like a simple "how to" to tell me what to change so that I don't get 3,800 lines per hour saying something like:

    [Fri Sep 01 15:26:41 2006] [error] an unknown filter was not added: PHP

    They only differ in the date and time!

    Just update to the latest ISPConfig release and change the line:

    Code:
    $go_info["server"]["apache2_php"] = 'both'; // 'filter' = set PHP filters, 'addtype' = Set PHP addtype or 'both' = Set Filter + Addtype, suphp = SuPHP wrapper enabled
    to:

    Code:
    $go_info["server"]["apache2_php"] = 'addtype'; // 'filter' = set PHP filters, 'addtype' = Set PHP addtype or 'both' = Set Filter + Addtype, suphp = SuPHP wrapper enabled
    in the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php. Then change a setting in one of the websites and ISPConfig rewrites your apache configuration.

    Thanks. That seems to have fixed the problem.
