Subject [users@httpd] How to get my script run by the module instead of the execcgi
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2008 13:56:08 GMT

OK, originally we intended to use the php5-cgi to run a PHP script.

Having suffered an error and reading through the error logs and the 
suggested solution - we managed to get the source displayed as a page, 
but not to actually execute.  Not quite the intended result.

I have now compiled libapache2-mod-php5 and ensured that it is loaded 
before it is needed.

However, the server is stubbornly insisting on using php5-cgi and not 
using the module.

At least part of this must be because in my <Directory ....> stanza I have

Options ExecCGI

But if I comment this out, I just get a 403 forbidden.

I cannot work out how to ensure that the module is used rather than the 

Would someone care to point me in the right direction?

Many thanks.
