I had posted an issue after the VM update before the most the most recent one. At that time my issue was I had a site that had some php code in an asp file. To get that to work, there was an htaccess file that used: “AddType application/x-httpd-php .asp”. After the previous VM update that line no longer worked and I fixed it by using: “AddHandler php5-script .php .asp” instead.
Yesterday I updated again to the newest VM version and now the php code (like before) is being automatically comment out.
If someone could offer a suggestion on how to now get this php code parsed I’d appreciate it,
It sounds like that may be relying on mod_php to function.
If you change your domain’s PHP Execution Type to “mod_php”, does it function correctly at that point?
You can change that in Server Configuration -> Website Options.
Thanks Eric, ya know, I could have sworn I did that as my first test - but before I told you I had already tried that, I did it “again” and it worked.
So THANKS again. Is the site at risk now?
Well, it’s no more at risk than it was previously
But yes, that particular site appears to need mod_php enabled to function, and that does introduce security problems on multi-user systems.
It doesn’t make that one site at risk, that makes your other sites at risk from that one site.
Ah, I see - it’s been this way for a few years, so I guess I won’t sweat it.
Is there any better way of doing this now?
I just got another customer, this one with php in html files and had to switch over to mod_php to get to work. This one is a rather busy site and I’m not feeling real comfortable with the security compromise.
