make install

Add PHP to $PATH

echo 'pathmunge /etc/php/bin' > /etc/profile.d/php.sh

Copy php.ini

cp php.ini-development /etc/php/lib/php.ini

Add module opcache

vi /etc/php/etc/conf.d/modules.ini

and add 'zend_extension=opcache.so'


mkdir /etc/php/etc/conf.d

cp sapi/fpm/www.conf /etc/php/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf

cp sapi/fpm/php-fpm.conf /etc/php/etc/php-fpm.conf

Update PHP FPM configuration

vi /etc/php/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf

user = nobody
group = nobody

listen.owner = nginx
listen.group = nginx

listen = /var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock

Create a symlink for php-fpm to the standard path

ln -s /etc/php/sbin/php-fpm /usr/sbin/php-fpm

Create a systemctl file add the following:

vi /usr/lib/systemd/system/php-fpm.service

Description=The PHP FastCGI Process Manager
After=syslog.target network.target

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/php-fpm --nodaemonize --fpm-config /etc/php/etc/php-fpm.conf
ExecReload=/bin/kill -USR2 $MAINPID


Create a run directory for php-fpm:

mkdir /run/php-fpm

Start php-fpm and Restart NginX

systemctl start php-fpm

service nginx restart

Create index.php

mv /etc/nginx/html/index.html /etc/nginx/html/index.php

Update nginx.con file with the followinf content

root /etc/nginx/html;
index index.php index.html index.htm;

location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;

Install NginX CentOS 7

Add Nginx Repository

To add the CentOS 7 EPEL repository, open terminal and use the following command:

sudo yum install epel-release

Install Nginx

Now that the Nginx repository is installed on your server, install Nginx using the following yum command:

sudo yum install nginx -y

Start Nginx

Nginx does not start on its own. To get Nginx running, type:

sudo systemctl start nginx

If you are running a firewall, run the following commands to allow HTTP and HTTPS traffic:

sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
sudo firewall-cmd --reload

You can do a spot check right away to verify that everything went as planned by visiting your server’s public IP address in your web browser (see the note under the next heading to find out what your public IP address is if you do not have this information already):


Before continuing, you will probably want to enable Nginx to start when your system boots. To do so, enter the following command:

sudo systemctl enable nginx

Install Redis CentOS 7 Linux

Run the following commands to install redis

wget http://download.redis.io/redis-stable.tar.gz
tar xvzf redis-stable.tar.gz
cd redis-stable
make test
make install

Create a directory where to store your Redis config files and your data:

mkdir /etc/redis
mkdir /var/redis

Copy the init script that you’ll find in the Redis distribution under the utils directory into /etc/init.d. We suggest calling it with the name of the port where you are running this instance of Redis. For example:

cp utils/redis_init_script /etc/init.d/redis_6379

Copy the template configuration file you’ll find in the root directory of the Redis distribution into /etc/redis/ using the port number as name, for instance:

cp redis.conf /etc/redis/6379.conf

Create a directory inside /var/redis that will work as data and working directory for this Redis instance

mkdir /var/redis/6379

Edit the configuration file, making sure to perform the following changes:

vi /etc/redis/6379.conf

Set daemonize to yes (by default it is set to no).
Set the pidfile to /var/run/redis_6379.pid (modify the port if needed).
Change the port accordingly. In our example it is not needed as the default port is already 6379.
Set your preferred loglevel.
Set the logfile to /var/log/redis_6379.log
Set the dir to /var/redis/6379 (very important step!)

Finally add the new Redis init script to all the default runlevels using the following command

chkconfig --add redis_6379

Start Redis instance.

/etc/init.d/redis_6379 start

Check if Redis is working

redis-cli ping

Open Ports CentOS 7

To open up a new port (e.g., 80,21,22,3306 ) permanently, use these commands.

$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=80/tcp --permanent
$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=3306/tcp --permanent
$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=21/tcp --permanent
$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=22/tcp --permanent

$ sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Without “–permanent” flag, the firewall rule would not persist across reboots.

Check the updated rules with

$ firewall-cmd --list-all
