Multiple PHP versions on CentOS7 with virtualmin

I installed both php5.6 and php7.1 and I can see them on “PHP Versions” in Server Configuration.
In “Website Options” I selected "CGI wrapper (run as virtual server owner) "

Then when I select php7,
It adds the following Directives to httpd.conf

RemoveHandler .php

RemoveHandler .php5

RemoveHandler .php7.1

php_admin_value engine Off

Then website becomes inaccessible,
The requested URL /cgi-bin/php5.cgi/index.php was not found on this server.

When I comment out these lines I can access to the website but I can not use PHP 7.1

Any ideas?


I’ve encountered very similar issue.

The requested URL /cgi-bin/php5.cgi/index.php was not found on this server.

I’m running multiple PHP versions on CentOS 7.

I had some issues with switching from mod_php to FastCGI.

I found that only mod_php was working for me.

Up-on switching to FastCGI i’ve had the same issue “The requested URL /cgi-bin/php5.cgi/index.php was not found on this server.”

What i did was to fix this is remove;


From httpd.conf

Could you verify if this fixes you issue?


Finally I fixed the problem.
If anyone has the same problem the fix is;

There was missing configuration lines for the virtualhost in the http.conf, I added the following lines;

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/

<Directory /home/>
allow from all
AllowOverride All Options=ExecCGI,Includes,IncludesNOEXEC,Indexes,MultiViews,SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Require all granted

2 nd change I did; suexec rootdoc.

suexec -V
-D AP_DOC_ROOT="/var/www"

so I delete www and create symlink to /home

rm -fr /var/www
ln -s /home /var/www

Now both php versions work good.
