Update # Some minor mistakes solved, tnx a lot for the emails #

A little guide I’ve made for those who would like to develop with multiple PHP versions on a local server without restarting the Apache server every time you wish to change the PHP version. If you would like to read more about FastCGI, take a look here.

I’m still perfecting this guide bit by bit, any suggestions or comments are welcome.

I’m using Lucid 10.04 (2.6.32-21-generic). This guide would surely work on most Debian based systems. If not, for testing purposes, Sun’s Virtualbox is ideal for setting up a testing environment that equals this guide.

This guide is terminal-based. In Lucid the terminal is bound by default under the shortcut CTRL+ALT+T or located in the menu under Accessories->Terminal
