The port only installs php.ini-dist and php.ini-recommended, which are the ones from the PHP source tree. If neither of these is copied to php.ini then php.ini-dist is hardcoded inside php itself, also not something the FreeBSD port alters. > Second, Apache FreeBSD RC scripts inherit the user environment from > sudo(8) unless you pass -H or -i flag/args > > E.x.:, > > % sudo -H -i -u root /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 restart > > Compared to: > > $ su - > Password: > $ /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 restart > > Result in completely different results in PHP's $_ENV As expected.

Correct. You can however clean the entire environment, by setting apache22limits_enable="YES" and apache22limits_args="-e -E -C daemon". If you need specific variables to be available and the rest to be gone, the standard rc script doesn't support it. You'd have to roll your own. > I may be better off using getenv() in PHP directly. For portability yes, since it doesn't rely on EGPCS, but otherwise they give the same results. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
