Through yum, rpm commands I've got php53 and other 53 versions common pdo cli mysql pdo

I can't tell what version of apache I have, or how to integrate this php into apache.

[root@server1 httpd]# yum list installed | grep 'apache'

vzdummy-apache.noarch 1.0-1.swsoft installed

Am I on Apache 1.x or 2.x ? Will I need to update or compile Apache from source, to compile PHP module in it ? or can I use DSO ? Build and Install Apache (with DSO support)

I've found my configuration files, for apache and php and I can do which php ( and it shows /usr/bin/php ) but I'm not sure, any other directories that are used, or where php.ini-recommended is ??

Ah, using

php -r "phpinfo();" | grep Configuration

I see that my php.ini is located at /etc/php.ini

Also reading through the httpd.conf, I'm guessing I'm on 1.2, with this text

# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/> for
// and I see this also - Including the php configuration files
Include conf.d/*.conf

And my php.conf has the AddHandler directives. I would next need to track down the modules that are referenced, to confirm they exist.

I've also reviewed my logs ( access and error ) and can't find anything terribly wrong; It just seems that Apache will ignore any requests for a .php resource.

Suggestions welcome; I must be missing something silly. TIA, for your help.

  • On CentOS 5.2 and I did restart Apache, also. – Robert Apr 28 '11 at 7:09

on centos rhel and so on, apache normaly is named as httpd check yum list installed | grep 'httpd'


vzdummy-apache.noarch 1.0-1.swsoft installed

Apache package is named httpd. I don't know what this vzdummy is. This is not from any standard repository. I suggest you remove both httpd and php by

yum -y remove httpd
yum -y remove php\*

and after that reinstall from scratch:

yum install httpd
yum install php php-XXX php-YYY

where php-XXX and php-YYY packages for PHP you need.



Then execute

locate *.repo

to see if you have any third-party repositories on your CentOS. You should have the output like this:


If you have something else, new repositories can clash with standard ones preventing your OS from working correctly. You have to setup priorities for all packages.


Thank you very much. Thru the help of IRC chat ( #bind, #centOS ) I was able to find out that I probably had a fake CentOS version created with openvz

I did use yum update ( rpm ) to update the whole box to CentOS 5.6 and things got working.
