Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Debian Squeeze - ISPConfig Problem

    I followed the tutorial to install mod_spdy on my ISPConfig Web Server and got it running.

    However there seems to be compability problems with the ISPConfig Control Panel. Whenever I login to ISPConfig, the navigations are not working (top-/sidenavigation).

    I would really appreciate it if this could be checked :)

    For the moment, everyone else having this problem can manually edit the ispconfig.vhost in /etc/apache2/sites-available and add:

    <IfModule spdy_module>
    # Turn on mod_spdy. To completely disable mod_spdy, you can set
    # this to "off".
    SpdyEnabled off

    to deactivate spdy for the CP.

    I've added this to our bugtracker, however I'm not sure if this is something we must fix. I think this is something the mod_spdy project should check (maybe there are incompatibilites with Ajax?). I suggest you fule a bug report there as well.

    Hi falko

    OK I will get in touch with them to check and let you know.

    Thank you.

    I tried using mod_speedy with roundcube.
    Same here.
    You just have to open Firebug and use roundcube for 1-2 minutes and the console is filled up with errors thrown by the ajax requests.

    According to the ticket that was submitted to spdy_devs, this is not an issue with spdy. It is an issue with ISPConfig using mod_php instead if mod_fcgi for serving php? Is there an easy way to switch the panel to mod_fcgi?

    Ok, so mod_spy is not compatible with mod_php? Then you should disable mod_php on your server if you want to use mod_spdy. Fastcgi is used automatically in that case by ispconfig.

    Any ideas here? I just want to tell ISPConfig to use fastcgi by default.

    Just uninstall mod_php, ispconfig will use fastcgi automatically then. Installing mod_php makes no sense as most cms systems use ajax today so you cant use any of them with mod_php and mod_spdy.

    To disable mod_php run:

    a2dismod php5

    (for Debian and Ubuntu).

    But I don't want to do that. I want to keep that in case someone wants to use it on the server. Is there no way to force it in the config?

    Edit the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost and remove the mod_php part. then restart apache.

    I tried that, but it still does not show properly. There must be more of an issue here. I will look into updating that ticket.

    Digging out more than a year old thread!


    What is the status of both mod_php and mod_spdy to work like dclardy proposed in ispconfig3?

    Any updates in this connection? Thanks!
