App engine PHP modules not working

I read the docs about GAE's modules. This sample application shows how to use modules in a GAE app. I have modified the code little bit to use both php and python languages on that.

Here is the Github link where the corresponding code resides.

When I try to run this application on my local machine, by running this command

dev_appserver.py dispatch.yaml app.yaml php.yaml static_backend.yaml --php_executable_path /usr/bin/php


all works fine except the code written in php. When I try to access that particular part by triggering this
localhost:8080/mobile/
, I get an empty page instead of
Hello World
.

Answer

I have ran your code without a problem.

php module python module

Try the following:

  • Installing all necessary PHP extensions using gcloud components install app-engine-php
  • Omitting the --php-executable-flag
  • Making sure it is correct with the command which php on your terminal, and pointing the --php-executable-flag to your php-cgi
