How To Install (LEMP), Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP Stack on Ubuntu 12.04?

How To Install (LEMP), Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP stack on Ubuntu 12.04

L - Linux
E - Nginx (Pronounced Engine-X)

Step 1 Log in to your Linux server with the root user. This has taken care of the 'L' of LEMP.

Step 2 Next we will update all the softwares to the latest versions

sudo apt-get update

Step 3 Install MySQL on the server with the following command :

sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql

You would be prompted to enter a password for your MySQL.

Once the installation is complete activate it using the following command :

sudo mysql_install_db

Next run the MySQL set up script :

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

You will be prompted to enter your password. Then you will be asked to change the root password, type N and move on.
For the rest of the options chose 'Y'.

Enter current password for root (enter for none): 
OK, successfully used password, moving on...
By default, a MySQL installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MySQL without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y                                            
 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
... Success!

By default, MySQL comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

Step 4 Install PHP

sudo apt-get install php5-fpm

Open www.conf file

sudo nano /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf

Find the line

sudo nano /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf

and change it to

listen = /var/run/php5-fpm.sock

Save the file and exit and restart php-fpm :

sudo service php5-fpm restart

Step 5 Install nginx

echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" | 
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nginx-stable.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys C300EE8C
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nginx

You need to start nginx by typing :

sudo service nginx start

Step 6 Open up the default config file for Nginx

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

The Server block for the config file should have the following settings

server {
        listen   80;

        root /usr/share/nginx/www;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;


        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;

        error_page 404 /404.html;

        error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
              root /usr/share/nginx/www;

        # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on the php-fpm socket
        location ~ .php$ {
                try_files $uri =404;
                fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
                fastcgi_index index.php;
                fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
                include fastcgi_params;


Restart Nginx

sudo service nginx restart
