I followed the instructions in the book to install php5 and did not had any problems. Following are the steps to install mod_python and mod_perl

Installing mod_python:

  1. cd /usr/ports/www/mod_python3
  2. make install
  3. make clean

Once the installation process is completed, it is time to integrate mod_python with Apache. So open the Apache config file and look for the part where you see all 'LoadModule' lines:

  1. vim /usr/local/etc/apache2/httpd.conf

and add this line:

LoadModule python_module libexec/apache2/

Installing php5

I have tried to install the php5 as described in lab instructions.

#/usr/ports/lang/php5/make install clean

It gives me the error message during installation OR Some time my FreeBSD virtual machine Crashes during installation. I am using Virtual box.I have tried installing new FreeBSD with standard option. It crashes at first time. Any hint, suggestions to this problem would be really appreciated.

The error message i got is.. can't cd to /usr/ports/devel/autoconfig262/work/autoconfig-2.62:No such file or directory patch patch-autoconf.texi fail to apply cleanly.

Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/autoconf262.

Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/php5.

Error code 1 Stop in /usr/ports/lang/php5.


I have installed PHP5 with Pkg_add method

pkg_add -r php5

PHP configuration

A) Edit Apache configuration file for PHP Configuration.

Step1: Edit the httpd.conf file make Apache aware that PHP is installed.

vi usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf

Step2: Put the following code in httpd.conf, near the DirectoryIndex

<IfModule dir_module>
  DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

Step 3: Insert the the following lines towards the end of the file

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Step 4: Copy php.ini-recommended to php.ini

cp /usr/local/etc/php.ini-recommended /usr/local/etc/php.ini

B) Configure php.ini to save its sessions

Step1: Edit php.ini so PHP knows where to put its session files

vi usr/local/etc/php.ini

Step2: Uncomment the following line

session.save_path = "/tmp"

C)Testing PHP Configuration

Step1: It is Just displaying the file contents.I think its not running it. Means the command


Just show me the following output

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Any help/suggestions are welcome

Finally Done it

As described before i got the following error messages while installing from ports.

can't cd to /usr/ports/devel/autoconfig262/work/autoconfig-2.62:No such file or directory
patch patch-autoconf.texi fail to apply cleanly.
Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/devel/autoconf262.

I again looked at those error messages. I installed the package autoconfig262 (i dont know why we need this package. At least we need this package to install PHP5. So i did it with pkg_add -r autoconfig262 and again tried php5 with ports methods and every thing is fine.

PHP5 and Apache are fine. Great!.
