Subject [users@httpd] PHP4/PHP5 both as Apache 2 Modules RHEL 5
Date Sat, 21 Feb 2009 00:12:25 GMT
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has successfully installed php4 and php5 both
as Apache modules on RedHat Linux before.  My situation is that I have
legacy authentication code that requires php4.  Sorry, not required, I
just don't have the time to try to figure out how to modify the scripts
to run under php5.  

In addition we are moving to a new authentication method that requires
PHP5. I would like to have the sites that run with the older version of
php4 and the scripts that run with the newer version of php5 installed
on the same server so the developers can move over authenticated
applications as necessary.

I currently have php5 installed as a module and php4 installed as a cgi
binary but there is heavy use of the $_SESSION variables in the scripts
and it does not function when php4 is configured as a cgi binary. I keep
getting an undefined index error in the apache log that refers to a
$_SESSION variable declared in one of the scripts.   

My thought is it would be possible to have 2 virtual named hosts and one
run php4 as a module and the other php5 as a module.

Any input or point in the right direction would be appreciated.
