I fooled around for hours, and suddenly it's working, and I'm not sure what this I did that fixed it. Man that pisses me off...
Bottom line is that
mod_php83 is fucked. I had to remove
it, and build/install
mod_php82 from the port, using
gcc compiler. Instructions here:
apache24 with mod_php82 won't start up. Scroll down about halfway.
With this fix, apache will now start up with the
php_module statement, but it's still not parsing/executing
php code -- sigh.
cacert.pem" (probably haxx.se). I've put this into the directory with my other certificates just for ease of locating. Then create symbolic link to it where php can find it. This fixes curl_init error when trying to do https connections.
ln -s[your certs dir / haxx file name]
cd /var/local/etc. Check for existing
php.ini- if not present, copy from one of the samples. Now edit this file:
max_input_chars = 4000
memory_limit = 1024M
session.auto_start = 1; I think this was needed to make a cmdline execution work
session.save_path = /tmp/php_sess; be sure to manually create this dir,
mysqli.default_socket = /var/db/mysql/mysql.sock; be sure to manually create this dir; note that this will give a "file not found" on the first php mysqli call.
pkg install php73
pkg install php73-session
pkg install php73-mysqli
One of my customers uses WordPress and Akeeba backup. You'll need these additional packages:
pkg install php73-filter
pkg install php73-simplexml
pkg install php73-mbstring
pkg install php73-hash
One of my packages uses curl with json to communicate outbound:
pkg install php73-json
pkg install php73-curl
pkg install mod_php73
track_errors = 'off'; before this my php webpages would get an error about "track_errors has been depracated".
LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache24/libphp5.so
In my php code:
mysql_connect() to mysqli_connect().
remove mysql_select_db() - it's parm is now the 4th parm to mysqli_connect().
The return from _connect() is now used by the mysqli_ functions, thus must now be declared as a global in every single fucking routine that uses it. I HATE PHP - PHP is shit. Ok, it's better than VBScript, but that's not saying much.
Every mysqli_query() gets a new first parm that is the connect result.
mysql_fetch_object() becomes mysqli_fetch_object(), no parms changes, yay!
mysql_real_escape_string() becomes mysqli_real_escape_string() and gets the _connect return. Why the fuck a string sanitizer needs the db connection I cannot imagine - at best, this scares me.
mysql_error() becomes mysqli_error(), needs new connect parm "link".
mysql_data_seek() becomes mysqli_data_seek(), no parms changes.
