I’m using Virtualmin to manage some servers (both physical or VPS) and I’m pretty confidence to say that this is the best freeware for server control panel.
Virtualmin currently provide PHP 5.1 (I’m using CentOS 5.5) and here’s how to upgrade its PHP version to 5.2. This command will activate Bleeding Edge Packages for CentOS/RHEL 5 on Virtualmin:
[root@server01 ~]# rpm -ivh http://software.virtualmin.com/bleed/centos/5/i386/virtualmin-bleed-release-1.0-1.rhel.noarch.rpm
After that, simply run following command to update PHP:
[root@server01 ~]# yum update php
And just answer “yes” when your system ask. Update process will just take a few seconds to complete.
After reading a tutorial of how to install Nginx, PHP and MySQL in a difficult way, now I would like to tell ya how to install them in a very easy way.
I found this method was very effective and completed just within few minutes in my Centos VPS.
- Download this shell script to your VPS
[root@power ~]# wget http://freevps.us/downloads/nginx-centos.sh
- Run that bash script
[root@power ~]# bash nginx-centos.sh
- Voila! Nginx, PHP-FPM and MySQL are installed at glance!
Not only that, this shell script also installed a tool to create virtual host in Nginx named
When I made virtual host for this blog, I just need to run this command:
[root@power ~]# setup-vhost sandalian.com
Then I uploaded all my files at
/var/www/sandalian.com and configure database connection etc.
Thanks to you guys at freevps.us, installing this stack never been easier than this!
