[Solved] Multiple Versions of PHP using suexec?

    This is a huge issue. We run PHP 5.2.x, 5.3.x, and 5.4.x. User's can switch between all three versions, or run them simultaneously in different directories, addon domains, or subdomains. We also run suEXEC on our servers, and the PHP extensions are setup as so:

    lsphp52 -> 5.2.x
    lsphp53 -> 5.3.x
    lsphp54 -> 5.4.x

    The only one that would actually work now is the default one (php -> lsphp5) or php53 (lsphp53).

    We either need a way to edit what extensions are suEXEC capable, or it should, by default, include the logical extensions:

    php6 (which isn't even available yet, as 5.4.1 is the latest release right now)

    Please advise.

    Agreed. This continues to be an issue which needs some sort of permanent resolution. Ideally it would be nice if we could configure the suexec capable extensions. Otherwise at the very least we would need:


    But even then more would need to be added in a timely fashion as the version become available (php6, etc).

    To clarify:

    wiki (http://www.litespeedtech.com/suppor...peed_wiki:multiple_phps_in_control_panel_lsws) statement 'suEXEC capable suffixes are: “php, php4, php5, php53, phtml, php54, fastphp” ' does NOT mean php 5.2 can not be used in suEXEC. Instead, it can be. just associate php5 handler with php 5.2. wiki is updated accordingly.

    Is this really hard for you Litespeed guys to implement custom suExec suffixes? It could be really nice feature and more possibilities for us to have more options to provide more customized php versions to our cPanel hosting customers.
    I really like you webserver as it is a way more better than apache in every aspect.
    It will be nice if we will be able to offer for example:
    php 5.3.19 + ioncube
    php 5.3.19 without ioncube
    php 5.3.19 + GD
    php 5.3.19 without GD

    It is not enough suExec suffixes ;) If it is not so hard to implement this I would like to see this in future litespeed versions :) It will be huge improvement for us, your customers :)

    Merry Christmas.
