Hi!

Do someone know how can I configure the apache web server or the php to run a php as a cgi script?

When I try this line in php code,
#!/usr/local/bin/php
I get this error on my log
Premature end of script headers:
/www/cgi-bin/pruebacgi.php

and
When I try  this line,
#!/usr/local/bin/php -q
I get it:
malformed header from script. Bad header=       php
[options] -r <cod
e>: /www/cgi-bin/pruebacgi.php
I hope someone can help me!

Thanks in advance,
Kisses

Make sure lines like this are in your http.conf:

   ScriptAlias /php/ "usr/local/bin/"  
   Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"

   AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
   AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
   AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm


This will make PHP run in CGI mode.

hello duerra,
thanks for reply!

Well I have the apache 1.3.28 and the php 4.3.3 on Red Hat Linux 7.3

I don't have the lines you said me. I have the lines below. So do I need to add the two firsts lines? (   ScriptAlias /php/ "usr/local/bin/"    Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe")


   #
    # AddType allows you to tweak mime.types without actually editing it, or to
    # make certain files to be certain types.
    #
    AddType application/x-tar .tgz
    # The following is for PHP4 (conficts with PHP/FI, below):
    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
      AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4 .php3 .phtml .php .wml
      AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
    </IfModule>
   
     #The following is for PHP3:
    <IfModule mod_php3.c>
      AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3 .wml
      AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .phps
    </IfModule>
   
     #The following is for PHP/FI (PHP2):
    <IfModule mod_php.c>
      AddType application/x-httpd-php .phtml
    </IfModule>


    #
    # ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
    # ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
    # documents in the realname directory are treated as applications and
    # run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the client.
    # The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directives as to
    # Alias.
    #
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/www/cgi-bin/"

    #
    # "/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
    # CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
    #
    <Directory "/www/cgi-bin">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>

</IfModule>
# End of aliases.

    #
    # AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to "handlers",
    # actions unrelated to filetype. These can be either built into the server
    # or added with the Action command (see below)
    #
    # If you want to use server side includes, or CGI outside
    # ScriptAliased directories, uncomment the following lines.
    #
    # To use CGI scripts:
    #
    #AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Thanks a lot!
I appreciate your help.

Correct.  Except put a slash in front of /usr/.  I missed that the first time:

ScriptAlias /php/ "/usr/local/bin/"    
Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php.exe"

Also, you may not need the quotes.  I'm used to Windows configuring of PHP, so the Linux version may not require them.
