change server api to CGI


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to change the apache server to run in CGI application mode

so this:

Server API Apache 2.0 Handler

needs to read this way:

Server API CGI/FastCGI

I believe this is the correct way of wording what I need :D I'm trying to run php serial extensions and it requires the apache server to run in cgi mode.

snip from the installation guide:

Load it and look for information under Server API line (should be CGI/FastCGI),

Configuration File (php.ini) Path line; also win_serial_port module should appear in loaded

modules list.

To change how PHP is running, open Apache configuration file, example (change path):



Comment this line:

#LoadModule php5_module "c:/Php/php5apache2.dll"


And add 2 new lines:

ScriptAlias /php/ "c:/php/"

Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php-cgi.exe"


Save, and very important, restart Apache.

I can't add the php-cgi.exe because uniform doesn't seem to come with it. I added it, then just added the lines above and well, it didn't like that :angry:

Any ideas?
