Re: Fwd: [php-maint] Updating php5 to 5.4.4-5 broke FastCGI setup on my machine

Hi Ondřej,

I also cannot think of any configuration that would make everyone happy. At the moment, I fear this can only be solved by more documentation.

Maybe one could add such a paragraph to the NEWS entry of php5-cgi 5.4.4-5, e.g. before "The standard configuration now also..." :

  WARNING: The new configuration may override other configuration
  directives you may have added locally for the .php extension, for
  example for FastCGI processing. This behavior is caused by <FilesMatch>
  configuration sections overriding directives appearing in global server
  or VirtualHost scope. You should review and test your configuration and
  verify that your php scripts work as expected.

The README.Debian or the wiki page you are already pointing to should then list likely candidates for problematic local configurations, like "AddHandler fcgid-script .php". Maybe it could also say, that if all else fails and the user is willing to live with the *.php.foo problem, the old behavior can be restored by replacing etc/apache2/mods-available/php5_cgi.conf with something like

  AddType application/x-httpd-php phtml pht php php3 php4 php5
  AddType application/x-httpd-php-source phps

to get the old behavior back. What do you think?

This sucks. In hindsight, maybe the mime.types change should have been deferred until we ugrade to apache 2.4 and people have to adjust their configs anyway. But I think it's too late now to go back. And leaving the *.php.foo problem there for yet another release cycle would not have been a good solution either.
