Issue with non-existent php files

    I have this issue on a newly installed perfect server with ISPConfig 3.1.7p1, Debian 9.2, Apache 2.4.25 and PHP-FPM.


    Browser output:
    "File not found."

    [proxy_fcgi:error] [client] AH01071: Got error 'Primary script unknown\n'

    Handled by ErrorDocument (like any other file types).

    Another issue, I cannot run PHP files in the default /error folder of a website anymore. The source code is sent to the browser.

    Thanks for helping out :)

    Edit: this post should probably have been posted in the Server Operation forum. Sorry for that.

  2. I guess you are missing php handler for the website, Make sure you enable php for the website by selecting any handler like fast-cgi, suphp etc..

    That's not the case. PHP works fine.

    This issue is unfortunately still present on 18.04. Several StackOverflow questions without a solution. I guess it's a bug in Apache.
    It's not possible to create errordocument pages when the file extension is .php. The log says
    AH01071: Got error 'Primary script unknown\n'

    sooo please post output of
    a2query -m
    do you have any rewrites for that page like forward all requests to index.php?
    In rare situations there can be an issue where php gets its request before the correct rewrite. If you have, please post your rewrites / htaccess/additional vhost entries.

    Maybe attach the vhost file from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

    edit: oh yeah and I assume you're running using php-fpm

    Hi, no rewrites. Everything is default perfect server. The ISPConfig standard error document page should show up but it does not.

    Yes, PHP-FPM as I wrote in the first line of the first post :)

    no you just mentioned the howto ;) you still could've set it to fastcgi or mod_php with deprecated _prefork mpm ,)
    So I miss the list of modules to check against aswell as vhost file - hmm but I still missed something, normal php outside /error works fine?
    "ErrorDocument 404 /" or as mentioned to a existent .php file?
    Have you checked what your webserver's doing by setting log level very low and watch what happens while you try to load a page?

    No, see the last word on line 1 :) The php files in /error is unrelated and just a sidenote.
    The error is simply: Create a website with PHP-FPM. Go to that website and append /something.php to the URL. The ISPConfig standard error document page should show ERROR 404 - NOT Found! And it does with .html and so on, but not with .php.

    u mentioned the howto u followed, doesn't mean u have to use the fpm mode for this case ;) however yeah
    I didn't see the issue, right ... I thought an existing error.php doesn't work ( should pay more attention while reading ) but ok.
    Calling anything-nonexistent.php should call the working and existing error-document - which it doesn't.

    issue is, there's no try_files like in nginx to check file existing, dunno / will need lookup wether we can have php-fpm return status code or better apache before it wastes resources.

    change /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/vhost.conf.master
    encapsulate every <FilesMatch "\.php[345]?$"> ( think while doing it, example: mod_php wouldnt need that ) with
     <If "-f %{REQUEST_FILENAME}">

    could look like:

    dunno if this can be done with conf-custom folder @till ? you need to recreate the website vhost file either by changing something or resync just all pages.
