Topic: httpd 2.2 and 2.4 and php

Hi all,

   looking at apache 2.4 docs it looks like that between apache 2.2 and 2.4 there are many changes that do not permit a single php package to work with both apache version: can you confirm this? Do you have any plan on this direction or you will build only apache 2.4 and thus php53 and php54 only for apache 2.4? Or, instead, do you plan to have php packages for apache 2.2 and apache 2.4?

Hope I was clear
Many thanks

Re: httpd 2.2 and 2.4 and php

I don't know yet if I will put httpd 2.4 is the remi repository.
Too much changes, especially on access filter (Deny from ... / Requires ip ...), which will require a full configuration analysis / update.

I confirm than php package is dependent on httpd major version.

So I don't know yet how I will handle this.

If httpd 2.4 goes to remi repo, of course, php in remi repo will require it.
But it will probably go (at least for some time) in the testing repo (which imply 2 versions of php)

Really don't know yet.

And again, this is really a big work, and I don't know if I will have time for it
(one of the reason why, I will soon drop php 5.3 support)

Re: httpd 2.2 and 2.4 and php

I think it would be better to make httpd 2.4 depend on php-fpm and modify the default config. I would be happy to assist with config file review/changes
