I have a fresh installation on CentOS 7 with httpd and following remi's wizard I installed php 5.4 as single version (I know it's old, but part of my requirements !!).
My problem is that httpd cannot run php scripts (simple like
phpinfo) just as described in this question: PHP not working with Apache on Centos 7
Apart from that problem, things that I find very very strange are:
- there is no php module in httpd:
httpd -M | grep php shows nothing!! There should be
php5_module, or not ??
- there is no php.conf file in httpd:
[user@pc ~]]$ ls -l /etc/httpd/conf.d/ total 16 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 2926 Apr 2 16:13 autoindex.conf -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 366 Apr 2 16:14 README -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1252 Nov 27 17:58 userdir.conf -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 824 Nov 27 17:58 welcome.conf
- but the same time, php is installed as described (remi-wizard):
[user@pc ~]$ php --version PHP 5.4.45 (cli) (built: Oct 22 2019 13:26:02) Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.4.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies
- php packages are there (only those I installed obviously) :
[user@pc ~]$ rpm -qa 'php*' | sort php-cli-5.4.45-18.el7.remi.x86_64 php-common-5.4.45-18.el7.remi.x86_64
Similar question I found here and the provided solution is installation of
mod_php. Sounds right... but here comes my other question:
yum install mod_php the system prompts me for php installation (though I have it installed) !!
sudo yum install mod_php ... --> Running transaction check ---> Package php.x86_64 0:5.4.45-18.el7.remi will be installed --> Finished Dependency Resolution
(it's the same with)
sudo yum install php ... --> Running transaction check ---> Package php.x86_64 0:5.4.45-18.el7.remi will be installed --> Finished Dependency Resolution
Am I doing something wrong here or missing something ??
