    Hi all

    Since ISPConfig 3.0.5 now supports custom/additional PHP versions, I took the time to compile some for me today - based on the ISPConfig manual (yep, you should buy a copy!).

    Since this might be interesting for others as well, please find attached the resulting .deb packages.

    To install, just unzip the wished version(s) and run dpkg -i php-*.deb to install the package. It will then be installed to /opt/php/<version>. Additionally, you should copy the provided .ini files to /opt/php/<version>/lib and copy php.ini-production to php.ini (within this folder).

    Note: They were build on Squeeze 64-bit for FastCGI!

    Downloads (if they are offline right now, try later -> uploading)

    You can add them to ISPConfig now (consider docs/manual to see how to do that).

    A very detailed tutorial on how to create your own packages will be published soon as well. Stay tuned!

    Thanks for the packages.

    Btw, do you know the phpfarm project? It makes it easy to compile and update php binaries. You can find it on

    Hi till

    No, I didn't know it before. Looks really promising! Thanks for the hint - I'll check how it can help me (and it seems like it can).

    Thanks :)

    I've run a little benchmark today to test performance/speed of different PHP versions. Here are the results:

    All versions include the same amount of modules, same php.ini etc. - so there is definitely an improvement in how the interpreter works :)

    Probably this will make custom PHP versions even more attractive for some users here :)

    I've discontinued it recently. Please use one of the tutorials here on HTF to compile a custom PHP version.

    I'm sorry for that...
