How to Install Apache 2.2, PHP 5.6, MySQL 5.7 on CentOS 6

Today I am going to teach you the easiest way of installing a Webserver with Apache, PHP, and MySQL.

We are going to use Epel and Remi repositories on CentOS and configure our server. First of all, we should find the latest version of Epel and Remi packages from their sites :

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/
http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/

After it, we will download the packages on our system and install them on the server.

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

After these packages are installed completely, we should activate these repositories on Yum configuration file.

nano /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

Make sure that “[remi]” and “[remi-php56]” are enabled. It should look like as following.

[remi]
name=Remi’s RPM repository for Enterprise Linux 6 – $basearch
#baseurl=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/remi/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/remi/mirror
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi

[remi-php56]
name=Remi’s PHP 5.6 RPM repository for Enterprise Linux 6 – $basearch
#baseurl=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/php56/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/6/php56/mirror
# NOTICE: common dependencies are in “remi-safe”
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-remi

We have to save the file and then edit the Epel repository to make sure it is enabled too.

nano /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo

It should be enabled as following :

[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 – $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/$basearch
mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch
failovermethod=priority
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-6

Now we can start to install PHP, apache on our system.

yum clean all
yum update
yum install php php-mysql

After all these steps are done, we will install MySQL on our system.

wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el6-7.noarch.rpm
yum localinstall mysql57-community-release-el6-7.noarch.rpm
yum repolist enabled | grep “mysql.*-community.*”
yum install mysql-community-server

It is now fully installed, we will start all services and will confirm the installed versions.

service mysqld restart
mysql –version
service httpd restart
php -v
httpd -v

If you have any question, please add a comment and I will get you back.

HugeServer Announces Logo and Website Redesign

We are glad to announce our new logo and website redesign inspired by following factors:

  • Impressing current and new customers
  • Creating a more trusting and supportive energy through the new look
  • Staying up-to-date with current digital trends
  • Attracting new customers

I believe the new Logo design was a necessary step for us to take the feeling and company image to the next level. At the same time, we redesigned the entire website and introduced new products and services such as Hybrid and Virtual Servers. I appreciate everyone in the development department whom helped to make this long process happen.  Looking forward to 2017, HugeServer plans to expand geographically and improve its automation systems with focus on user control and service provisioning.

2014 was a big year for HugeServer and majority of what we had planned last year is achieved by now and we will assure you that every year that passes by we get where no one expects us to be!

  • Expansion to 3rd Los Angeles Datacenter: opening our 3rd datacenter has been the best goal we achieved in the year. Now we’re able to provision more servers in a quick time backed by our big inventory.
  • Optimizing network for Asia: we value all customer and always try to provide the best service to them. with growing service demand from Asia we decided to optimize our network for the least latency to Asia pacific.
  • Full Juniper Network: upgrading our whole network router and switches to Juniper equipment. this upgrade will improve network uptime and reliability our customers.
  • ION: our full- featured brand-new control panel for managing your server and infrastructure easily. we will continue to develop the control panel for more automation tasks.
  • ION API: ION API is here for developers who wants to access ION features in their application.
  • ION Reseller Control Panel: one month after launching ION we launched our new white-label control panel for our resellers.  Now they have more flexibility to control their branding and access lists through their reseller control panel.
  • NOC Improvement: our NOC department has now more monitoring tools to prevent and detect any network outage and attacks in a short time.

How to speed up yum on centos

Yum is a great tool to install, remove and update packages on centos. As all of you may know yum uses the fastest mirror to download and install the packages on your dedicated server or your desktop computer.

Sometimes it comes to a slow connection between you and the current fastest mirror which is cached on yum, and you are getting a very low download speed for the packages.
