To install multiple php in your machine, wee need PHPFarm and FastCGI.

Let’s make it!

Pre-requisite

First, install apache and php (if you don’t have).

sudo apt-get install apache2 php5

Update your machine

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Dependencies

sudo apt-get install build-essential libxml2-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev pkg-config libmysqlclient-dev

Git

sudo apt-get install git

Phpfarm

cd /opt
sudo git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/phpfarm/code phpfarm

After install it, will created a folder “phpfarm” inside /opt/ like this :
phpfarm inside opt folder in ubuntu

Compile PHP

Create 2 file inside phpfarm/src
a) custom-options-5.3.29.sh and copy this script :

#gcov='--enable-gcov'
configoptions="\
--enable-bcmath \
--enable-calendar \
--enable-exif \
--enable-ftp \
--enable-mbstring \
--enable-pcntl \
--enable-soap \
--enable-sockets \
--enable-sqlite-utf8 \
--enable-wddx \
--enable-zip \
--disable-debug \
--with-mysql \
--with-zlib \
--with-gettext \
--with-pdo-mysql \
--with-curl \
--with-openssl \
$gcov"

b) custom-options-5.5.0.sh and copy the following script :

#gcov='--enable-gcov'
configoptions="\
--enable-bcmath \
--with-mysqli \
--with-curl \
--with-png \
--with-gd \
--enable-gd-native-ttf \
--enable-calendar \
--enable-exif \
--enable-ftp \
--enable-mbstring \
--enable-pcntl \
--enable-soap \
--with-pdo-mysql \
--enable-sockets \
--enable-sqlite-utf8 \
--enable-wddx \
--enable-zip \
--with-openssl \
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib \
--with-zlib \
--with-gettext \
--with-mcrypt \
$gcov"

Now, compile php 5.3.29 and 5.5.0
*This will take a several minutes

cd /opt/phpfarm/src
sudo ./compile.sh 5.3.29
sudo ./compile.sh 5.5.0

After installed, you can see two new folder “php-5.3.29” and “php-5.5.0” :
multiple php version
And link executable inside /opt/phpfarm/inst/bin/ :
php link to executable

Install & Enable FastCGI

sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-fastcgi apache2-mpm-worker apache2-suexec
sudo a2enmod actions fastcgi suexec
sudo service apache2 restart

Create folder cgi-bin:

cd /var/www/html/
sudo mkdir cgi-bin

cgi bin inside www html apache
Create file “php-5.3.29” inside /var/www/html/cgin-bin/ and copy the following script :

#!/bin/sh
PHPRC="/etc/php5/cgi/5.3.29/"
export PHPRC
PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN=3
export PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN
PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS=5000
export PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS
exec /opt/phpfarm/inst/bin/php-cgi-5.3.29

Create file “php-5.5.0” inside /var/www/html/cgin-bin/ and copy the following script :

#!/bin/sh
PHPRC="/etc/php5/cgi/5.5.0/"
export PHPRC
PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN=3
export PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN
PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS=5000
export PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS
exec /opt/phpfarm/inst/bin/php-cgi-5.5.0

cgin-bin file for configuration php

Make the file executable

sudo chmod +x /var/www/html/cgi-bin/php-cgi-5.3.29
sudo chmod +x /var/www/html/cgi-bin/php-cgi-5.5.0

Configure virtualhost

Create file “virtualhost.conf” :

cd /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
sudo vi virtualhost.conf

Paste this script to virtualhost.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>
	ServerName php53.localhost
	DocumentRoot /var/www/html/php53
	FastCgiServer /var/www/html/cgi-bin/php-cgi-5.3.29
	ScriptAlias /cgi-bin-php/ /var/www/html/cgi-bin/
	<Directory "/var/www/html/php53/">
		AddHandler php-cgi .php
		Action php-cgi /cgi-bin-php/php-cgi-5.3.29
		<FilesMatch "\.php$">
			SetHandler php-cgi
		</FilesMatch>
	</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
	ServerName php55.localhost
	DocumentRoot /var/www/html/php55
	FastCgiServer /var/www/html/cgi-bin/php-cgi-5.5.0
	ScriptAlias /cgi-bin-php/ /var/www/html/cgi-bin/
	<Directory "/var/www/html/php55/">
		AddHandler php-cgi .php
		Action php-cgi /cgi-bin-php/php-cgi-5.5.0
		<FilesMatch "\.php$">
			SetHandler php-cgi
		</FilesMatch>
