How to install PHP-FPM with Nginx on Ubuntu 22.0

To install PHP with Nginx, you’ll need to follow a few steps. Here’s a general guide for setting up PHP with Nginx on a Linux-based system. Please note that specific commands might vary depending on your distribution.

1. Install Nginx:

For other distributions, you can use the package manager specific to that distribution.

2. Install PHP:

Install PHP and the PHP FastCGI Process Manager (PHP-FPM). PHP-FPM is a process manager to manage PHP processes.

3. Configure Nginx to use PHP:

Edit the Nginx default site configuration file. This file is typically located in /etc/nginx/sites-available/default.

Add or modify the following lines inside the server block to enable PHP processing:

Save the file and exit.

4. Restart Nginx:

After making changes to the Nginx configuration, restart the Nginx service to apply the changes:

5. Test PHP:

Create a test PHP file to ensure that PHP is working correctly with Nginx. For example, create a file named info.php in your web root directory (usually /var/www/html):

Open a web browser and navigate to http://your_server_ip/info.php. You should see the PHP information page.

Remember to replace your_server_ip with the actual IP address or domain of your server. Additionally, make sure that the PHP-FPM socket path matches the version you have installed.

This is a basic setup, and you may need to adjust configurations based on your specific requirements or server environment.
