Debian php4-bin fcgi?
I'm doing a setup for a fcgi php4 (apache & mod_fcgi), and after
compiling php4 as fcgi I found I could do the same by just getting the
source package for php4-bin and simply adding '--with-fastcgi' to
COMMON_CONFIG in the debian rules file (and then rebuild the package).
Is there a reason why nobody has thought of simply turning this
param on, and adding it as a php4-fcgi package?
If not, could this be added as package?
Or is there a way to simply install the cgi AND the fcgi as part
of the php4-bin package? This would be really handy for people using
I could also use mod_php, but I feel that seperation of functionality
is a good thing. Not only is it impossible for a fcgi to crash a
or be hacked through it, but it also possibe to run the FCGI on a
server, making it more scalable & secure. Last but not least: I can use
to give al my users their own php, and still use the advantages of the
& persistent connections Zend has to offer.
