Install php 7.1 on Centos 7

Recently, I want to move my old portfolio site, into a new server. Basically I want to update from centos 6 to centos 7. So, I’m start digging some information about installing php 7.1 in my centos 7 server.

Here is the snippet.

cd ~
rpm -Uvh epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-7.rpm

yum install yum-utils
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php71

yum install php php-devel php-fpm php-gd php-mbstring php-pdo php-pecl-swoole php-pgsql php-mcrypt

So, after installation is finished, we can try this :

[[email protected] ~]# php -v
PHP 7.1.1 (cli) (built: Jan 18 2017 11:37:34) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) 1997-2017 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2017 Zend Technologies

To make sure our php-fpm running on port 9000:

[[email protected] ~]# service php-fpm status

Using port 9000 is the easiest way to setup php-fpm. You can use unix socket too. But you need to careful about permission.

On the next blog post, we will cover integration with php-fpm + nginx and some php frameworks.
