Cloudlinux has added their support in PHP Selector to work with lsphp in LiteSpeed Web server. It leverages the same PHP Selector GUI so that user can switch between different lsphp versions in LiteSpeed Web Server without going to LiteSpeed Admin Console to build LSPHP separately.
In brief, Cloudlinux' PHP Selector, LVE Manager and CageFS need to be installed and enabled; LSWS' lsphp5 external app needs to be in NON suEXEC daemon mode （for example, suEXEC worker mode or suEXEC Process Group mode. suEXEC daemon mode is incompatible with PHP Selector) with lsphp5 binary being set to a symlink that eventually points to the actual PHP binary of user's choice in CageFS.
You can also check Cloudlinux PHP Selector documentation.
Followings need to be installed and/or enabled:
Refer to CloudLinux document for installation details and how to enable.
LiteSpeed Web Server:
yum groupinstall alt-php
yum update cagefs lvemanager
As of this writing (3/15/13), the correct package version should be:
Make sure the following entries are appended to file /etc/pam.d/su. It should be added when CageFS is installed. Just manually add them if not.
session required pam_sulve.so session required pam_lve.so 100 1
1. Enable cagefs for a user
su - username
cagefsctl -e username
3. In user's cagefs, /usr/local/bin/lsphp should be a symlink to php53 (since we pick 5.3 in step 2.)
lstestc@cptest [~]# ls -l /usr/local/bin/lsphp lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Mar 14 19:15 /usr/local/bin/lsphp -> /etc/cl.selector/lsphp* lstestc@cptest [~]# ls -l /etc/cl.selector/lsphp lrwxrwxrwx 1 lstestc lstestc 28 Mar 15 13:23 /etc/cl.selector/lsphp -> /opt/alt/php53/usr/bin/lsphp* lstestc@cptest [~]#
In lsphp5 external app (Admin Console ⇒ Configuration ⇒ Server ⇒ External App ⇒ lsphp5),
command => $SERVER_ROOT/fcgi-bin/lsphp5
command => /usr/local/bin/lsphp
See screenshot below:
1. In order to use PHP Selector and custom php.ini, lsphp5 needs to be in NON suEXEC daemon mode( for example, suEXEC worker mode or suEXEC process group mode). As explained in this blog, php.ini can not be overridden in suEXEC daemon mode.
