Install PHP on DragonFly BSD

PHP is my another concern when I study an OS. Since many project we did in the past use PHP heavily.  PHP 5.2 is another ‘can’t move on’ requirement for many project of us and available in check list.

DragonFly BSD dports also offer PHP same as I expect :

Checking available PHP version in dports

# whereis php52
php52: /usr/dports/lang/php52
dflybsd# cd /usr/dports/lang && ls -l | grep php
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php-mode.el
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php5
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php5-extensions
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php52
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php52-extensions
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php53
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php53-extensions
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php55
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php55-extensions
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 16 13:34 php_doc

Nice. In general dports offer PHP  (in time of writing) :

  • PHP 5.4 : located in PHP5 (version 5.4.23)
  • PHP 5.3 (version 5.3.28)
  • PHP 5.5 (version 5.5.7)
  • PHP 5.2 (version 5.2.17)

Install PHP as Apache Module on DragonFly BSD

As I already install Apache MPM Worker previously I want to add PHP capability to web server as module.

I choose PHP 5.2

# cd /usr/dports/lang/php52 && make install

install_apache52_on_dragonflybsd

After installation completed.
