run php5 and php7

hello - is it possible to have two different virtual servers run different versions of php?


  1. i installed php5 on at /usr/local/bin/php5

  2. in httpd.conf, i changed any ‘7.0’ to ‘5.6’

    AddHandler fcgid-script .php5.6
    FCGIWrapper /home/ .php
    FCGIWrapper /home/ .php5.6

  3. i copied /fcgi-bin/php7.0.fcgi to /fcgi-bin/php5.6.fcgi and changed the final line:

exec /usr/local/bin/php-cgi5

  1. mkdir /etc/php5.6; and copy php.ini from /etc/php7.0 to /etc/php5.6

now when i reference a webpage with

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

i now successfully see:

PHP Version 5.6.21

could anybody please verify my steps? since i guessed at everything so far i really dont trust this.
