Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux PHP

The configuration for PHP has been moved from httpd.conf into the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf. For this file to be loaded, the statement Include conf.d/*.conf must be in httpd.conf as described in Section, “Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support”.


Any PHP configuration directives used in Apache HTTP Server 1.3 are now fully compatible, when migrating to Apache HTTP Server 2.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
In PHP version 4.2.0 and later the default set of predefined variables which are available in the global scope has changed. Individual input and server variables are, by default, no longer placed directly into the global scope. This change may cause scripts to break. Revert to the old behavior by setting register_globals to On in the file /etc/php.ini.
