“configure” is a script designed to aid a program to be run on a wide number of different computers. This will automatically use your system variables to configure and ready the source for your VPS. When it is done it will generate a file called Makefile with all the info in it so define your required parameters while configuring it.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php7313 --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php7313/etc --with-config-file-scan-dir=/usr/local/php7313/etc/conf.d --includedir=/usr/include/php7313 --with-libdir=lib64 --disable-debug --with-pic --disable-rpath --without-pear --with-bz2 --with-freetype-dir=/usr --with-png-dir=/usr --with-xpm-dir=/usr  --without-gdbm --with-gettext --with-gmp --with-iconv --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-openssl=yes --with-pcre-regex --with-zlib --with-layout=GNU --enable-fpm --with-fpm-user=nginx --with-fpm-group=nginx --enable-exif --enable-sockets --enable-shmop --enable-calendar --with-libxml-dir=/usr --enable-xml --enable-mbstring --enable-mbregex --with-gd=shared --enable-bcmath --with-xmlrpc=shared --enable-wddx=shared --with-xsl=shared,/usr --with-curl=/usr --with-tidy=shared,/usr --with-icu-dir=/usr --enable-json --enable-dom --enable-fileinfo --enable-posix --enable-intl --enable-zip --enable-pdo --enable-xmlreader --enable-xmlwriter --enable-soap --with-pear --with-ldap=/usr --with-mysqli -with-pdo-mysql --with-pdo-sqlite --with-gd

cd /usr/src/
    (Download, compile and install )
wget https://nih.at/libzip/libzip-1.2.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf libzip-1.2.0.tar.gz
cd libzip-1.2.0
./configure
make
make install

cd /usr/src/php-7.3.13
Continue Configuration process again.
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

configure: error: off_t undefined; check your library configuration

# Add below line in /etc/ld.so.conf file.
vim  /etc/ld.so.conf
    /usr/local/lib64
    /usr/local/lib
    /usr/lib
    /usr/lib64

(Now update the configuration )

# ldconfig -v
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Finally, Build part has been completed.

Build complete.
Don't forget to run 'make test'.
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You are now ready to compile the source. To compile it run the below command. This will compile the source output a lot of rubbish to your console. Just go ahead and let it finish. It will take time if you won’t mention “-j” option. Increase the number according to your VPS CPU core available. This will reduce the compiling time.

make -j4
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

When it is done, you should be ready to install it. Make will now follow the instructions in the Makefile to install the compiled package.

make install
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

( PHP Installation part has been completed. )

Now Configure PHP and PHP-FPM file.

First copy **php.ini **file from its source folder. It also might be on the PHP installed folder.

cp /opt/src/php-7.3.13/etc/php.ini-development /usr/local/php7313/etc/php.ini
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create SymLink:

ln -s /usr/local/php7313/bin/php /usr/local/bin/php73
ln -s /usr/local/php7313/bin/pecl /usr/local/bin/pecl73
ln -s /usr/local/php7313/bin/php-config /usr/local/bin/php-config73
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

PHP-FPM Config Files:

cd /usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.d/
mv www.conf.default www.conf
mv /usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.conf.default /usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.conf
vim /usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf
[www]
listen = /usr/local/php7313/var/run/php7313-fpm.sock
listen.mode = 0666
user = nginx
group = nginx
listen.owner = nginx
listen.group = nginx
pm = dynamic
pm.max_children = 128
pm.start_servers = 20
pm.min_spare_servers = 5
pm.max_spare_servers = 35
pm.max_requests = 10000
rlimit_files = 1024
slowlog = log/$pool.log.slow

cat /usr/local/7313/etc/php-fpm.conf | grep -v ";"
[global]
include=/usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.d/*.conf
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

PHP-FPM Systemd Service setup:

copy php-fpm service file from the source folder.

cp /usr/src/php-7.3.16/sapi/fpm/php-fpm.service  /usr/lib/systemd/system/php73-fpm.service
vim /usr/lib/systemd/system/php73-fpm.service
[Unit]
Description=The PHP FastCGI Process Manager
After=network.target
[Service]
Type=simple
PIDFile=/usr/local/php7313/var/run/php7313-fpm.pid
ExecStart=/usr/local/php7313/sbin/php-fpm --nodaemonize --fpm-config /usr/local/php7313/etc/php-fpm.conf
ExecReload=/bin/kill -USR2 $MAINPID
PrivateTmp=true
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

systemctl daemon-reload
 ln -s /usr/local/php7313/sbin/php-fpm /usr/sbin/php73-fpm
 systemctl start php73-fpm
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now Install MongoDB Package:

PECL is a repository for PHP Extensions, providing a directory of all known extensions and hosting facilities for downloading and development of PHP extensions.

pecl73 install mongodb
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now add “extension=mongodb.so” line on php.ini file.

vim /usr/local/php7313/etc/php.ini
    extension=mongodb.so
php73 -m | grep mongodb
mongodb
systemctl restart php73-fpm
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Install OCI8 Package:

Visit below website and download two packages “instantclient-basic” and “instantclient-devl” according to your system architecture.

https://www.oracle.com/database/technologies/instant-client/linux-x86-64-downloads.html

cd /usr/src
wget  https://download.oracle.com/otn_software/linux/instantclient/195000/oracle-instantclient19.5-basic-19.5.0.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm
wget https://download.oracle.com/otn_software/linux/instantclient/195000/oracle-instantclient19.5-devel-19.5.0.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm
yum localinstall oracle-instantclient19.5-basic-19.5.0.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm
yum localinstall  oracle-instantclient19.5-devel-19.5.0.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm

pecl73 install oci8
( Type below mentioned path during installation. )
instant,/usr/lib/oracle/19.5/client64/lib
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now again add extension on php.ini file.
vim /usr/local/php7313/etc/php.ini
    extension=oci8.so

systemctl restart php73-fpm
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now Install Nginx and Configure:

yum install nginx
vim /etc/nginx/conf.d/abc.com.np.conf

server {
    listen         80 default_server;
    listen         [::]:80 default_server;
    server_name    bdn.com.np www.abc.com.np;
    root           /var/www/abc.com.np;
    index          index.html;

location ~* \.php$ {
    fastcgi_pass unix:/usr/local/php7313/var/run/php7313-fpm.sock;
    include         fastcgi_params;
    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME    $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_NAME        $fastcgi_script_name;
  }
}

mkdir -p /var/www/abc.com.np
vim /var/www/abc.com.np/index.php
    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>

nginx -t
systemctl restart nginx
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now check for the PHP Version and the installed Extension. They should be listed there.
