Title: PHP Version Switcher
Post by: Administrator on May 24, 2014, 09:38:32 PM
Now CWP has PHP Switch option in which you can very easily switch to other PHP version and recompile it with desired modules.

How to use it?
- Click on PHP Version Switcher (here you will get server PHP version and compiled modules which your server has now compiled).
- Select PHP Version you wish to compile in drop-down menu and click next.
- In PHP compiler you can add or remove modules you want (please use only: one per line).
- Click on Start compiler and compiler will start to work in background.

Compiler needs from 5 to 20 minutes to finish depending on modules you are installing and your CPU power.
You can return in eg. 15 minutes and in CWP - PHP Version Switch check which version of PHP and modules you now have.

Your websites and CWP will work during compiler process and PHP will be update when compiler is completed and only if its successful.

You can check PHP compile logs in file:
Code: [Select]
/var/log/php-rebuild.log
If you wish to monitor compiler then use this command from shell:
Code: [Select]
tail -f /var/log/php-rebuild.log

glad to see this messages!
but I still concern some details.
if I switch to another php version, will CWP remove the installed version, or just compile the selected version in another path?
and is the web server still working during the process of compiling?

PHP Version Switcher for me not Working !!
The same issue! I can't change PHP from 5.4/5.3 to 5.2 but it works from 5.4 to 5.3.

Any suggestion?

I would like to add tidy support on php.
I add
Code: [Select]
--with-tidy in php switcher but it does not change tidy support.
The log file ended with
Code: [Select]
checking for TIDY support... yes
PHP Rebuild Completed
I try to change the php version (from 5.4 to 5.5) but it is the same thing (version does not change and log file end with php rebuild completed).
I am doing something wrong ?
Thank you

Changing the php version from 4.4.9 to 5.2.17 or other upper versions doesn't work. In PHP Info page it mentions "You are running PHP version: 5.2.17". But in the table of the same page it points "PHP Version 4.4.9". What is wrong? Please help me.

Update:
# php -v
php version -> 5.2.17

On the other side, one of my websites on this host tells the current version is 4.4.9.

you will need to check php selector and if you have set custom path for account php version somewhere in htaccess

I guess the latest CWP version still having the same issue where I did the php recompilation from 5.4 to 5.3 and from 5.3 back to 5.4 again. On php -v it showed 5.4 but the php info page still showing 5.3.

you should contact support so this could be checked on your server

Hello , thank you for this feature in CWP,
i like it and looks very nice idea :D
i have a question:

1. Does this feature can used by user?  or only root privilege!?

because i create an user account for my customer , i gave to him the credentials , and if he like to change php version he can do it by himself , with php version switcher!! ? so !
i know one method is to edit .httacess file but should be better to be this feature for users to!

thank you!
Title: Re: PHP Version Switcher
Post by: Administrator on November 21, 2015, 11:21:17 PM
you can only change per user by using htaccess and php selector, as php-switcher is a global server version.

How can I use flags during compile, like in the selector?  Specifically, I want to compile my base PHP version with --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs.  Thanks!

Hello,

I have a problem with mi PHP Versión Switcher, i'm trying to install a php-ldap module, I foundthis option http://forum.centos-webpanel.com/php/enable-php-ldap-extesion-in-php-5-6-(centos-6)/ (http://forum.centos-webpanel.com/php/enable-php-ldap-extesion-in-php-5-6-(centos-6)/) , but i can't add new flags to the PHP Version Switcher compiler, can you help me to find a solution?

My CWP Versión is: 0.9.8.333 and the PHP Version is 5.6.30
Title: Re: PHP Version Switcher
Post by: gkiss88 on August 02, 2017, 08:44:38 AM
The version switcher works fine for me but I have a few concerns with it:

1. What's the point of providing such feature while there's a packaged version available (cwp-php) installed by default? I believe it would be more logical to package and maintain one particular version used as the PHP interpreter for the CWP web interface and several other system functions and use PHP Selector for providing PHP usage feature for users. Now that I compiled version 5.6.31 using the Version Switcher, I have two separate instances of the same PHP version (one in /usr/local and one in /opt/alt/php56) which looks pointless to me.

2. Both the packaged and the manually compiled version install files to /usr/local directory. I believe this is not very wise as it might cause file conflicts between the compiled and the packaged version and also, overwriting files provided by packages is never a good idea (except for configuration files, of course).

3. As it was pointed out by other users, it would be nice to provide some interface to customize configure options (or at least extend them so that features/modules required for CWP to work may not be disabled).

Anyway, CWP is a great piece of software, I started testing it a few days ago and has been loving it, so far. Keep up the good work, guys!

My CWP Versión is: 0.9.8.333 and the PHP Version is 5.6.30


this is simple
Just edit configuration file for version you want to change and the open php switcher

Configuration files location: /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/conf/php_switcher/
Edit file for php version you need, example for php 5.6 and add this at end of the file

nano /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/conf/php_switcher/5.6.ini

Code: [Select]
[myconf1]
default=1
option="--with-pcre-regex"

This is not related /usr/local version is default version (from php switcher) while /opt/alt is installed by php selector.

Hello
In the PHP Selector section when I click Install Dependencies, then in the log file:
Code: [Select]
Finished Dependency Resolution
Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

         1. You have an upgrade for libc-client which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libc-client of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libc-client.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.

         2. You have multiple architectures of libc-client installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.

         3. You have duplicate versions of libc-client installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).

Hi,

Is there any way to enable php selector in every user accounts.? So they can switch from one version into another that suites their need.
Some of my hosting clients are former cpanel clients, they have the php selector on their cpanel account. But can't find it in cwp
