How can i configure environmental variables that are passed to apache (xampp on windows 7) and the scripts? Is there a way to set them up in the httpd.conf?

2 Usecases:

  • extending the PATH variable to be able to run the cgi-programm (dlls dependencies)
  • setting some environmental variables that the programm does need during runtime

I do not want to globally set these variables

  • XAMPP is not topical here. Windows 7 is not a server OS and thus falls outside our scope too. – user35787 Feb 6 '17 at 8:45
  • @istheEnglishway but there are tags for both of them and it is server related - so i do not understand your points. Sure it is not for "production" use and not meant to be online reachable - but a simple internal server based tool. – vlad_tepesch Feb 6 '17 at 8:54

The mod_env Apache module gives you the PassEnv and SetEnv directives that enables you to set up the environment per your needs.
