Configure php5 as module and php4 as CGI to run at the same time


I have a problem..

i have compiled php5 as a apache2 module and it's running fine..! Now i need to run php4 with the same apache as a CGI sccript, i tried google and find out, to configure php as CGI/fastCGI to apache the option required are

--enable-discard-path --enable-force-cgi-redirect --enable-fastCGI and rest of the options and without apxs2 of course, and then configured apache accordingly.

Now when i tried to run phpinfo script, it's giving hell of warnings and syntax error however that php5 is running fine with out any error.

I don't want to use rpms( i'm using fedora) wanted everything to compile so any one please help me out !!

can you run php4 from the command line?

cgi accesses scripts from cgi-bin. Such scripts have the typical first line #!/bin/sh or #!/usr/local/bin/perl or #!<your-path-to-php4>. That should just work. Try it without any additional configurations such as the fastCGI.

If you need Apache configured for both php5 and php4 depending on circumstances, I'm not sure of that. However, take it one step at a time. Make sure php4 still works from the command line. Make sure you can execute a script that calls for php4. Make sure you can execute that script from a web browser through cgi. Then start messing with tuning.
