Configure Tomcat to run PHP scripts

P: n/a
Hello Everyone,

I am trying to configure Tomcat5.5 to run PHP5.2.5 scripts on linux
machine. I got some information from http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/UsingPhp
as how to do this. First, It says to apply patch to configuration file
and then apply a patch to sapi/servlet/servlet.java. But I am stuck at
the first step it self. In the first step it says to apply a patch.
But I could not get which file I've to modigy and where. I firmly
bellieve that this is because the article talks about PHP version 4
and Tomcat version >= 4 and I am using a higher version of PHP. I said
this because I couldn't find servlet/servlet.java under the folder
sapi. Please correct me if I am doing anything wrong here.

Can anyone give me the compatibility matrix of PHP versions and Tomcat
versions or atleast the highet compatible version of PHP with Tomcat
5.5.

Also, please give me a detailed procedure about configuring Tomcat5.5
to run with PHP5.2.5 on linux machine. I am new to this technology.
So, please give a detailed procedure.

Thanks in advance,
Mohan

Mohan,

You will have to build PHP from the source code. For this you will need
the gcc compiler plus development libraries for other products you might
want to use, i.e. mysql, gd, etc.

If you've never built something from scratch before, you probably have a
lot of downloading to do.

The file hasn't changed. It is still configure, and is available with
the source code download. Lines may have changed, however, so you may
need to do some looking through the file to determine exactly where the
patch goes, and modify it accordingly.

Hi Jerry,

So, you mean to say that PHP 5.2.5 scripts can be run on Tomcat5.5. In
that case what about the second path to java file (sapi/servlet/
servlet.java). I could not find this path at all.

can you please give me some more information on this?

Thanks
Mohan

(Top posting fixed)

I've never tried it, but from the page you referenced, it looks like it can.

And it looks like you need to find where your servlet.java file is and
reference it.
