php-proxy-middleware

php-proxy-middleware

Node middleware that forwards requests to a built-in PHP server. Uses proxy-middleware and php-built-in-server under the hood.

Usage

var express = require('express');
var php = require('php-proxy-middleware');
 
var app = express();
 
// add routes to be handled by express here 
// ... 
 
// forward all other requests to the php server 
app.use(php(__dirname + '/php'));

Route forwarding

You can also selectively forward a single route:

app.use('/api', php(__dirname + '/php'));

Requests to /api/foo.php for example will be proxied to http://localhost:####/foo.php

If you want the PHP server to see the original URL (starting with /api) you can specify a URL prefix:

app.use('/api', php({
  root: __dirname + '/php',
  prefix: '/api'
}));

Available Options

php({
  phpPath: 'path/to/phpExecutable',
  address: '0.0.0.0', // which interface to bind to 
  port: '5000', // will auto-detect a free port otherwise 
  iniFile: '/path/to/php.ini',
  ini: { max_execution_time: 60, error_log: '...' },
  root: 'path/to/docroot',
  router: 'path/to/router.php',
  prefix: '/some/url/prefix/'
});
