Debian 9 LAMP

I finally made the switch from Centos to Debian which I felt has more updated packages and much larger community.

Here are the steps I took to setup one of my web servers.

 

MariaDB(MySQL)

To install MaridaDB on Stretch, just use apt to install the packages.

 

apt-get update

apt install mariadb-client mariadb-server

 

After Installation is complete run the following command to secure Mariadb

 

mysql_secure_installation

 

 

Apache 2

To install Apache run the following command

apt-get install apache2

 

To run virtual host in a custom directory you will need to edit httpd.conf add the following lines

 

Let says your going to create a user called www and you want to run all your virtual host inside that directory. You will need to add the following to allow apache to serve the web files


<Directory /home/www/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Require all granted
</Directory>

 

PHP 7

 

To install PHP 7 run the following command

 

apt install php7.0 php7.0-mysql php7.0-pear php7.0-xml

 

 

Now Enable MariaDB and Apache to start up when the system boots up.

 

systemctl enable apache2

systemctl enable mysql

Lets starts up the services

systemctl start apache2

systemctl start mysql

 

Now lets test it works

Create a file called test.php

Copy code and paste code


<?php

echo phpinfo();

?>

Save and hit your IP address for example http://192.168.1.2/test.php

 

You should see all the PHP module you have installed
