deuce Initial documentation for PHP-FPM
Line 1: Line 1:
 ====== Use PHP with the Synchronet Web Server ====== ====== Use PHP with the Synchronet Web Server ======
-FIXME+Dynamic [[http://​php.net/​|PHP]] content may be served by the Synchronet Web Server using //PHP-CGI// or, for 3.17a builds newer than November 1st, 20015, using //​PHP-FPM//​. ​ PHP-CGI is slower and less efficient than PHP-FPM, so PHP-FPM is recommended when available. 
 + 
 +PHP applications //will not// magically have access to your Synchronet content (e.g. users, messages, files). 
 + 
 +===== Install PHP ===== 
 + 
 +Make sure you get PHP-CGI or PHP-FPM support as needed. On *nix platforms, this is achieved for PHP-CGI by excluding the ''​--with-apxs2''​ option from the ''​configure''​ command-line during the installation process. 
 + 
 +===== Install PHP Content ===== 
 + 
 +Install your PHP application(s) into your ''​[Web] Root directory'',​ as specified in your ''​[[config:​sbbs.ini]]''​ file. 
 + 
 +:!: Note: many PHP web applications require 3rd party database support (e.g. MySQL), which may need to be installed as well. 
 + 
 +===== Configure Web Server For PHP-CGI ===== 
 + 
 +Edit your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​sbbs.ini]]''​ file, ensuring: 
 +  - The Web Server is enabled (''​AutoStart=true''​) 
 +  - If your application has an ''​index.php''​ file, that that file is included in the ''​IndexFileNames''​ value (comma separated list) 
 +  - The ''​MaxCgiInactivity''​ value is set to something sane (default: 120 seconds) 
 +  - The ''​CGIExtensions''​ key value includes ''​.php''​ (comma separated list) 
 +  - The ''​Options''​ key value **does not** include the ''​NO_CGI''​ option (bit 5) 
 +    
 +Example: 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[Web] 
 +AutoStart=true 
 +IndexFileNames=index.html,​index.ssjs,​index.php 
 +MaxCgiInactivity=120 
 +CGIExtensions=.cgi,​.pl,​.php 
 +Options=NO_HOST_LOOKUP 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +Edit your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​web_handler.ini]]''​ file. 
 + 
 +If you're using Synchronet for Windows v3.15 (Web Server Revision 1.525 or later), edit the ''​[CGI.Win32]''​ section, otherwise, edit the ''​[CGI]''​ section: 
 + 
 +Ensure the ''​php''​ key value points to the correct path (location) of your ''​php-cgi''​ (or ''​php-cgi.exe''​) file.  
 + 
 +Example (*nix): 
 + 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[CGI] 
 +php = /​usr/​local/​bin/​php-cgi 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +Example (Windows):​ 
 + 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[CGI.Win32] 
 +php = /​php/​php-cgi.exe 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +Edit your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​cgi_env.ini]]''​ file, ensuring it contains the following lines: 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[REDIRECT_STATUS] 
 +value=200 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +:!: If you see the PHP error ''​This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-redirect enabled.'',​ that indicates that your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​cgi_env.ini]]''​ file is missing this key. 
 + 
 +===== Configure Web Server For PHP-FPM ===== 
 + 
 +Edit your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​sbbs.ini]]''​ file, ensuring: 
 +  - The Web Server is enabled (''​AutoStart=true''​) 
 +  - If your application has an ''​index.php''​ file, that that file is included in the ''​IndexFileNames''​ value (comma separated list) 
 +  - The ''​MaxCgiInactivity''​ value is set to something sane (default: 120 seconds) 
 +  - The ''​Options''​ key value **does not** include the ''​NO_CGI''​ option (bit 5) 
 +    
 +Example: 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[Web] 
 +AutoStart=true 
 +IndexFileNames=index.html,​index.ssjs,​index.php 
 +MaxCgiInactivity=120 
 +Options=NO_HOST_LOOKUP 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +Edit the [[server:​web#​webctrl.ini per-directory configuration file|webctrl.ini file]] at the root of your PHP application and configure it to use FastCGI. 
 + 
 +Example: 
 +<​file>​ 
 +[*.php] 
 +FastCGISocket=127.0.0.1:​9000 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +Make sure that php-fpm is running and that the listener socket is the same as in the FastCGISocket line. 
 + 
 +:!: If you see the PHP error ''​This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-redirect enabled.'',​ that indicates that your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​cgi_env.ini]]''​ file is missing this key.
