Install php 5.2.17 on FreeBSD 9.2

Mysql Apache Linux PHP Mugs
Another server came and the requirement still same. PHP 5.2.17 is a must. I only have 2 options from the vendor; using ubuntu or freebsd.

Its 2013 and all support for php 5.2 on ubuntu server already gone. I have one option left for this job. FreeBSD. Since my last work with FreeBSD I also think FreeBSD 9.2 already throw PHP 5.2 but I’ll try it first.

Install Ports, PHP 5.2.17, Apache 2.2 and MySQL Server 5.1

# portsnap extract

Install latest supported PHP 5.2

# cd /usr/ports/lang/php52

Choose required stuff, Apache as web server.


===>   NOTICE:

This port is deprecated; you may wish to reconsider installing it:

PHP 5.2 series is strongly discouraged for new  installations, migrate now.

It is scheduled to be removed on or after 2014-03-01.

Wew. At least it work for my job now 🙂

For apache selection, let it as is.


Install PHP Extensions

# cd /usr/ports/lang/php52-extensions && make install

choose extensions that you like. ( I pick MySQL, Curl, GD beside default options).

Tips : add WITHOUT_X11=yes to /etc/make.conf to prevent system install X11 related software.

Install MySQL Server

# cd /usr/ports/databases/mysql51-server && make install


Add service to /etc/rc.conf :

# echo mysql_enable=YES >> /etc/rc.conf

# echo apache22_enable=YES >> /etc/rc.conf

Starting Service

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server start
Starting mysql.

Add php handler

# ee /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf

Make sure these lines exists :

LoadModule php5_module        libexec/apache22/

in load module list

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

in IfModule dir_module

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

inside IfModule mime_module directive.

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 start
Performing sanity check on apache22 configuration:
Syntax OK
Starting apache22.


Create php script

# ee /usr/local/www/apache22/data/info.php

put these lines :



Open via lynx

lynx localhost/info.php

then I get

3. Create testing directory

$ mkdir digitalfusi

4. Create php script

$ nano digitalfusi/index.php

put these lines :


echo “Hello world from <p>”;




5. Create yaml file (configuration file).

$ nano digitalfusi/app.yaml

Put these lines :
