This is a SAPI module for PHP 4.x supporting thttpd, the tiny,
turbo, throttling HTTP server by Jef Poskanzer.
NOTE: All HTTP requests will be serialized. That means, one long running
script will block all other requests. Choose another web server,
if you want to execute arbitrarily long running scripts.
The module contains a patch against version 2.21b of thttpd. The patch
fixes a number of bugs and adds some functionality:
- HTTP/1.1 Persistent Connection/Pipeline Support
- PHP Scripting (**.php by default)
- Highlighting PHP Scripts (**.phps by default)
- Fast Accept Loop (unique to PHP)
- Periodic Connection Expiring (unique to PHP)
- Log to stdout (logfile=-)
- Fixes the Host: header vulnerability (affects vhosts only)
- Asynchronous request body handling (e.g. for POSTs)
- Accept filter for Linux
- Fix for non-blocking sending of thttpd-generated responses
You can configure the filename extensions by creating a config file for
thttpd and setting these entries:
The PATTERN has the same format as defined here:
"**.php" means: match any file ending in .php in any directory.
Setting the pattern from the command line is not supported.
NOTE: This version supports *only* thttpd 2.21b, no prior or later
This is a functional and stable module (it runs a large application
like IMP 2.2.0 without any problems). Its original intention was to
demonstrate the ability of PHP to work in every web server environment.
1. thttpd 2.21b (2.20 or +2.22beta will _not_ work)
Full Distribution:
2. PHP 4.x
Snapshots from CVS:
1. Extract software packages
$ gunzip -c thttpd-2.xx.tar.gz | tar xf -
$ gunzip -c php-*.tar.gz | tar xf -
2. Prepare PHP
$ cd php-*
$ ./configure \
--with-thttpd=../thttpd-2.xx \
<further PHP options>
$ make install
$ cd ..
You can see the list of valid PHP options by executing
$ ./configure --help
3. Configure, compile, install thttpd
Now follow the thttpd instructions. The Makefile template of
thttpd was changed to automatically use the components
required by PHP.
