How To Install Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP


Step 1: Install the Nginx Web Server

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nginx

Type one of the addresses that you receive in your web browser. It should take you to Nginx’s default landing page:


If you see the above page, you have successfully installed Nginx.

Step 2:Install MySQL to Manage Site Data

sudo apt-get install mysql-server

You will be asked to supply a root (administrative) password for use within the MySQL system.

The MySQL database software is now installed, but its configuration is not exactly complete yet.
To secure the installation, we can run a simple security script that will ask whether we want to modify some insecure defaults. Begin the script by typing:


Answer y for yes, or anything else to continue without enabling.

Step 3: Install PHP for Processing

sudo apt-get install php-fpm php-mysql

Step 4: Configure Nginx to Use the PHP Processor

We do this on the server block level. Open the default Nginx server block configuration file by typing:

sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

Currently, with the comments removed, the Nginx default server block file looks like this:

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;

    root /var/www/html;
    index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

    server_name _;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

We need to make some changes to this file for our site.

  • First, we need to add index.php as the first value of our index directive so that files named index.php are served, if available, when a directory is requested.
  • We can modify the server_name directive to point to our server’s domain name or public IP address.
  • For the actual PHP processing, we just need to uncomment a segment of the file that handles PHP requests by removing the pound symbols (#) from in front of each line. This will be the location ~\.php$ location block, the included fastcgi-php.conf snippet, and the socket associated with php-fpm.
  • We will also uncomment the location block dealing with .htaccess files using the same method. Nginx doesn’t process these files. If any of these files happen to find their way into the document root, they should not be served to visitors.
    The changes that you need to make are in red in the text below:
server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;

    root /var/www/html;
    index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

    server_name server_domain_or_IP;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

    location ~ \.php$ {
        include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock;

    location ~ /\.ht {
        deny all;

When you’ve made the above changes, you can save and close the file.

Test your configuration file for syntax errors by typing:

sudo nginx -t

If any errors are reported, go back and recheck your file before continuing.

When you are ready, reload Nginx to make the necessary changes:

sudo systemctl reload nginx or sudo service nginx restart

Step 5: Create a PHP File to Test Configuration

We can do this by creating a test PHP file in our document root. Open a new file called info.php within your document root in your text editor:

sudo nano /var/www/html/info.php

Type or paste the following lines into the new file. This is valid PHP code that will return information about our server:


When you are finished, save and close the file.


If php does not work restart by using command sudo service php7.1-fpm restart

thank you..
