apache 2.2 run php as username with fcgid

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:25 pm

One of my problem is to secure a little websites at least to run as their user and not as apache . In this way if one wordpress is hacked not all website to be modify by that script .

On internet you will find something like this

<IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
MaxRequestLen 15728640
FcgidConnectTimeout 20
SuexecUserGroup username groupname
<Directory /var/www/vhosts/>

Options +ExecCGI
AllowOverride All
AddHandler fcgid-script .php
FCGIWrapper /var/www/wraper/ .php
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

All is fine in some situation works . However I notice that if you have the php 5.6 installed this won’t work . I try all loglevel debug and other stuff but it simply didn’t start that wraper with that user in process list.

After some more dig I found out that /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf is different then on other php version and in this 5.6 that file have a SetHandler .

So the solution is to overwrite again that SetHandler

So in your vhost before add this IfModule you need to add also

<FilesMatch \.php$>
SetHandler None

how to disable gzip for specific file

Filed under: Linux,Php — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 1:33 pm

The short answer is

RewriteRule ^dashboard/index - [E=no-gzip:1]
SetEnvIf REDIRECT_no-gzip 1 no-gzip

Some explination of that solution

The – means NOOP, E means set variable, 1 is the value. After redirects, the variables are renamed and prepended with REDIRECT_.

This work for php FPM

If you have a mod dso you can use also this

apache_setenv('no-gzip', '1');
