FreeKB - HTTPD Install PHP on Linux
HTTPD - Install PHP on Linux

Use apt-get or yum to install PHP.

yum install php

 

Create the phpinfo.php file in the document root of your web server.

touch /var/www/html/phpinfo.php

 

Add the following to the phpinfo.php file.

<?php
   phpinfo();
?>

 

Make the following changes to the /etc/php.ini file. The reason open_basedir is set to /var/www instead of /var/www/html is because if HTTPD will be producing two or more websites using virtual hosts, setting open_basedir to /var/www ensure that every site at and below /var/www can use PHP.

expose_php = Off
open_basedir = /var/www

 

The ps command can be used to determine if your system is using init or systemd. If PID 1 is init, then you will use the service command. If PID 1 is systemd, then you will use the systemctl command.

If your system is using systemd, use the systemctl command to start and enable httpd.

systemctl restart httpd
systemctl status httpd

 

If your system is using init, use the chkconfig and service commands to start and enable httpd.

service httpd restart
service httpd status

 

Navigate to www.example.com/phpinfo.php, and the PHP info page should be displayed.
