Hi Trevor,

Your Apache must be able to use a version of PHP that can load the
php_mapscript module. If you use the FGS's PHP as CGI (not as Apache
module), you should be able to get it working.

To use it, include the file $FGS_HOME/www/conf.d/php.conf in your
httpd.conf (make sure PHPRC is set (see $FGS_HOME/www/bin/httpd)).
Before starting your apache, you will have to source setenv.sh.
