Problems running multiple PHP versions 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5

I am trying to install and configure PHP 5.5 (the latest one on the PHP site) to work in the /opt/rh/php55 folder which I created, along with the install for PHP 5.4 and the default php 5.3 version (the 5.4 using the tutorial on this site).

Now the only problem I am having is with PHP 5.5, it's running as standard mod_php fine (tried running the phpinfo() function in an index.php file and all works as expected.

I compiled it using the commandline: './configure' '--prefix=/opt/rh/php55' '--with-config-file-path=/opt/rh/php55/etc' '--with-apxs2' '--with-curl=/usr/local/lib' '--with-gd' '--with-gettext' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-kerberos' '--with-openssl' '--with-mcrypt' '--with-mhash' '--with-mysql=/usr' '--with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config' '--with-pdo-mysql=/usr' '--with-pcre-regex=/usr' '--with-pear' '--with-png-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-xsl' '--with-zlib' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-iconv' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-exif' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--enable-soap' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-mbstring' '--enable-zip' '--enable-wddx' '--with-libdir=lib64'

Then of course make && make install

I then did the cp of the php.ini file and just a blank screen in anything other than mod_php is there something I am missing here?

Thanks in advance, Jeremy.

This was on centos 6.5 for further information :)

When you receive that blank screen, do any errors show up in the error logs for that domain? Those are located in $HOME/logs/error_log.

No sadly nothing.

I know its working though the updated PHP version though (or the newest rather) since the website options and setting it to mod_PHP or whatever, CGI works though.

I have been poking around (accidentally responding to a thread that wasn't this one lol) and think its apache's (in fact I know it's apache's) handling of PHP that's causing the problem I just seem to remember using another username on this forum I may have forgotten when I looked into this problem.

I will try and log back into that one, I may have it on an old personal blog post I archived in SQL so I will look through that, it's a weird one.

Note to self do not install the epel fcgi module for apache it won't work lol.I kinda knew that was this morning well that was causing the problem I seem to be good at remembering things this early when I've had enough sleep.

Thanks so much this is just so I remind myself and I will put it in a blog posts so I do not waste anyone's time again.

Thank you so much for your help I really appreciate your time, Jeremy.

It's in this one:

But for me it's in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/php54-php.conf

Finally lol!
