php - no input file specified linux




Apache mod_proxy_fcgi and PHP-FPM(php-cgi.exe) issue(No input file specified.) on Windows (2)

The following is PHP-FPM (PHP 5.5)

php-cgi.exe -b 127.0.0.1:9000

The following is mod_proxy_fcgi (Apache 2.4)

The first way

<Files ~ "\.(php|phtml)$">
    SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/"
</Files>

The second way

<LocationMatch ^(.*\.(php|phtml))$>
    ProxyPass fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/$1
</LocationMatch>

The third way

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
    RewriteRule ^([^\.]+\.(php|phtml))$ fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/$1 [P,L]
</IfModule>

The above three ways will get an error "No input file specified." Anybody know why? How should I do to solve this problem?


I think this is a bug in mod_proxy_fcgi, connected to an issue resolved in Apache 2.4.12 onwards:

mod_proxy_fcgi: Remove proxy:balancer:// prefix from SCRIPT_FILENAME passed to fastcgi backends. [Eric Covener]

Here is a link

Unfortunatelly it was not good enough as Apache is sending the SCRIPT_FILENAME with a starting slash, similar to \c:\fileName.php, which is not resolved as a local file name and is never executed. You may verify this using a network sniffer(Wireshark) listening on your FastCGI port.

I will be more than happy to see this issue resolved officially since I am not confident in recompiling Apache by myself and so I am using distributions from apachelounge.


Inexplicably, simply changing the trailing / to a # seems to fix the problem:

<Files ~ "\.(php|phtml)$">
    SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000#"
</Files>

In trying to understand this I set Apache to LogLevel debug (timestamp/module/process details removed for brevity):

  • Using / gives:

    mod_proxy_fcgi.c(911): [client ::1:60730] AH01076: url: fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/E:/test/webroot/test.php proxyname: (null) proxyport: 0

    proxy_util.c(2417): [client ::1:60738] AH00947: connected  to 127.0.0.1:9000

The crucial difference appears to be in the last line, where the second (working) method doesn't appear to log anything as the value passed to the PHP process.

I'm at a loss to explain this and can't find mention of it anywhere. (Perhaps a braver soul than I would be willing to delve into the Apache and/or PHP source to investigate.)

Note that I haven't tested this beyond running phpinfo() so wouldn't recommend it for a production server.


Edit

This works for PHP 7.0, but with PHP 5.6 I still get the 'No input file specified' error.

Edit 2

And working with Apache 2.4.25, but not the recently released 2.4.26!

This seems to be an incompatibility minefield that is explicitly mentioned in the CHANGES_2.4.26 file:

mod_proxy_fcgi: Return to 2.4.20-and-earlier behavior of leaving a "proxy:fcgi://" prefix in the SCRIPT_FILENAME environment variable by default. Add ProxyFCGIBackendType to allow the type of backend to be specified so these kinds of fixups can be restored without impacting FPM. PR60576 [Eric Covener, Jim Jagielski]

The documentation has been updated to reflect this:

One example of values that change based on the setting of this directive is SCRIPT_FILENAME. When using mod_proxy_fcgi historically, SCRIPT_FILENAME was prefixed with the string "proxy:fcgi://". This variable is what some generic FastCGI applications would read as their script input, but PHP-FPM would strip the prefix then remember it was talking to Apache. In 2.4.21 through 2.4.25, this prefix was automatically stripped by the server, breaking the ability of PHP-FPM to detect and interoperate with Apache in some scenarios.
