php version switcher
Posted 08 May 2005 - 12:39 AM
a friend needed an easy to install wamp installation with php4, so i made a little bat to switch php versions. it acts like a toggle and does check to make sure everything's where it's expected to be before it runs.
the attached zip contains all the new files and modified httpd.conf. it maintains directory structure from uniform server's root (the parent directory of diskw), so be careful not to overwrite your httpd.conf if you've changed it yourself......
tested and works for me on winxp pro sp2.. however, as always, ymmv. :)
basically you make a one line change to httpd.conf. it's line 288 for an unmodified file. (or use the included one if you've not made any changes to it).
three new files get put into apache's conf directory. make sure loadphp.conf loads the correct version that you have in /usr/local/php. the other version of php needs to be named 'php4' or 'php5' (as appropriate).
the batch goes in the parent directory of diskw. with uniform server shut down, just run the switchphp.bat file to switch which php version gets loaded.

Can you also post it in the SF Patches system over at our site page on SourceForge?
i don't have a sourceforge account. i just leech.. err, i mean download stuff from there.
it's just something i whipped up cuz i needed it..
i saw another wamp installer that had one, so figured i'd share mine here.
i claim no rights to it, she's all yours. you can do whatever you want with it..

Does this work anymore? Apache wouldnt even load when I tried this and i didnt get any errors besides from when it tried to redirect to the admin panel after apache started and it couldnt connect. The switchphp file produced no errors. Any tips?
Figured it out, was an issue with the from the plugin not having the line: PHPIniDir "/usr/local/php/"
Everything works fine now. Woo hoo. =P
