Handle .phar files with php
Last modified: 2017-05-10 11:37:07 EDT
Description of problem:
.phar (PHP Archive files, similar to .jar) allows one to pack up whole PHP applications in a single file.
When dropping a .phar file into apache's document root, the .phar file does not get handled by php but treated as plain text.
The apache configuration should be changed to let mod_php handle .phar files in addition to .php files.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install apache with mod_php
2. Create a .phar file e.g. http://p.cweiske.de/120
3. Open the .phar in your browser
Phar file contents are displayed
phpinfo() output should be shown.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Having to think more about this
Fixed in http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/php.git/commit/?id=b2791b6eece4e6af00c6fa29d516c1f676f89ad0
Notice: this fix is only planed for F27 with PHP 7.2 as probably other packages need to be fixed (to protect unwanted .phar execution)
