I recently went from Debian Lenny with 5.2.x and was able to use mod_php for any php files that were not located in /home/ and suPHP for all the php files that were located in /home/.
I did this because I needed a default php.ini (given me all features of php) for my websites in /var/www/ and I didn't want to have to change the owner of all the .php files from root. I also had a default php.ini for all the /home/ php files without dangerous features.
This was I had setup:
<IfModule mod_suphp.c> <Directory /home/> AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5 suPHP_AddHandler application/x-httpd-php suPHP_Engine on suPHP_ConfigPath /home/shared/ </Directory> </IfModule>
This was working perfect, but recently I upgraded to PHP to 5.3.5 from dotdeb (Lenny has no official php 5.3) . This had weird issues on lenny such as not display errors correctly and little tid bits. So I decided to upgrade from lenny to squeeze. Uninstalled php (along with it came suphp) and reinstalled with the new source. I now have 5.3.3-7 with Debian Squeeze but I cannot get mod_php and suPHP to run at the same time anymore. mod_php will always work and there are no errors in apache2 or suphp logs. If I disabled mod_php then suPHP will work.
Is there thing I am doing wrong?
