    am trialling LSWS and have installed it within a chroot. The path to LSWS is /chroot/opt/lsws and the root being /chroot. I attempted to compile PHP using the LSWS method but it complained about missing wget/curl even though I copied them into the chroot.

    So, I downloaded PHP 5.4.8 and compiled from source using the --with-litespeed and then copied the resuling sapi/litespeed/php binary to /chroot/opt/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp.

    This works okay but I have also compiled the PHP 5.4 Suhosin extension and unsure where to place it ? is there a specific directory under the chroot it needs to be placed; and indeed any further extensions which we may required.

    Many thanks.

    Hmmm, interesting if I execute lsphp from the command line one sees
    ./lsphp -v

    in your LSPHP5 external app configuration, Command should be set to '/opt/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp'

    All running! a good learning process on how PHP handles chroot. Read some articles on net and for new revisions not correct. Will try and find time to write up own experience; once sorted MySQL in chroot as-well. It involved a mount bound from a upstream directory though that is personal preference. Can start to do some testing now :) Thank you.

    good to hear.

    for MySQL, if use socket connection (by default /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock), you need to create a hard link (ln not cp) in chroot (ie, /chroot/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock).
