    Hi Till,

    I am not sure this is my setting problem, I am using ISPConfig version 2.2.24

    1) I have enable php globally and uncheck the PHP Scripts and PHP Safe Mode options in one of my virtual site, say
    2) There is a test.php program in the /var/www/

    When I visit the virtual site www.example.copm/test.php, the source code of test.php shows up. I feel very unsafe that the php source code reveal to any visitors?

    This is a problem with your settings.

    1) If you uncheck the php option in the site settings then PHP is disabled and you see the sourcecode. hats the intended behaviour of disabling PHP ;) Enable it and it in the site settings and it should work properly. You can not enable php globally, take a look at the perfect setup guide and configure your server properly as described there.

    Sorry that I have typo, actually I have disabled PHP Globally before. Here is my /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf as

    # AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    # AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

    so, is it inevitable to show the php source code or I must remove any .php programs under /web ? This might be inconvenience for temporary disable php function per virtual website!

    Again, by experiment I found that if "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" was remarked in /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf, and disable (uncheck) the php script of one virtual site ( in ispconfig UI, the .php program source will be displayed on that website; like
    I have tried php4 and php5 in different server, will there be any gentlemen/ladies give me an advice?

    Hi falko, I have two severs; ServerA using CentOS4.6 + Apache2.0 + PHP4 and ServerB using CentOS4.7 + Apache2.0 + PHP5. Both using ISPConfig 2.2.24, some php version captured here:

    for ServerA

    and for ServerB

    I have followed the installation guide
    for /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf which only with this

    In ServerA
    LoadModule php4_module modules/
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    and in Server B
    LoadModule php5_module modules/
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    Does this information help?

    Looks ok. What's in your Vhosts_ispconfig.conf? Can you go to the directory where Vhosts_ispconfig.conf is located and post the output of
    ls -la

    You could use a .htaccesss file to disable all access to *php

    It is the intention that php source code is shown if you disable php, as php is DISABLED theb. So if you want to upload PHP files to a website you should enable php as it is absolutely useseless to upload php files to a website were you disabled php in the site settings.

    Dear all, Thanks all of your reply. What I want to disable PHP script under ISPConfig UI control panel is to let the PHP function temporary inaccessible (for internal php script development and testing). Okay, I will try other method or rename all those php programs for my temporary purpose.;)

    If you rename a php script to another extension you will get the sourcecode too ;)

    If you want to deny a filetype then you can do this by adding some apache mod_access rules to the apache directives field of the website like this:

    <Files ~ "\.php$">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
