  • # yum -y update
  • # yum -y groupinstall “Development Tools”
  • # yum -y install zlib-devel
  • # yum -y install httpd openssl-devel openssl mod_ssl vsftpd rpm-build rpm-devel autoconf automake lynx gcc
  • # yum -y install mysql mod_auth_mysql mysql-devel mysql-server
  • # yum -y install mod_python python python-devel
  • # yum -y install php-devel php php-common php-gd php-mcrypt php-mhash php-xml php-xmlrpc php-domxml php-gd php-mbstring php-mysql php-ncurses php-pear
  • # yum -y install sendmail sendmail-cf
  • # yum -y install wget
  • # yum -y install yum-utils
  • # yum -y install yum-plugin-replace
  • # yum -y install vim-X11 vim-common vim-enhanced vim-minimal
  • # yum -y install iptables
  • # yum -y install nmap
  • # yum -y install vixie-cron

HttpD install

  • #yum -y install httpd
  • #cd /var/www/html/
  • #echo This is a HttpD server > /var/www/html/index.html
  • #nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
  • #yum -y phpmyadmin
  • #nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf
  • #nano /etc/phpMyAdmin/
  • #/etc/init.d/iptables stop
  • #-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 80 -j ACCEPT

Wamp installation

info here


By default, CentOS will not allow many inbound or outbound connections. This is good, as it ensures your server is secure from the start – however, we need to open ports to allow Apache, FTP and MySQL to work over the internet:

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 20 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 3306 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 3000:3050 -j ACCEPT
service iptables save

Service Startup

If there’s ever a problem with the server, or your reboot it, it needs to be back up and running quickly to ensure your web site’s downtime is minimal. We do this by telling CentOS to run certain services on startup:

chkconfig httpd on
chkconfig mysqld on
chkconfig sendmail on
chkconfig vsftpd on

… and we tell CentOS to restart all of the services we’ve installed.

service httpd restart
service mysqld restart
service yum-cron restart
service iptables restart
service sendmail restart
service vsftpd restart

Zend Server install

To setup the environment:

Set up your Zend Server repository by creating ‘/etc/yum.repos.d/zend.repo’ and adding the following content:

name=zend-server – noarch

Now you can use ‘yum’ to handle installations or any other tool that supports the RPM packaging format.

To install:

  1. Once the environment is setup, run the appropriate command according to the PHP version (5.3 or 5.4) you require:

# yum install zend-server-php-<PHP Version>

  1. To clean your packages cache and ensure retrieval of updates from the web, run:

yum clean all

To access the Zend  Server UI, open your browser at: https://<Server_IP>:10082/ZendServer (secure), or http://<Server_IP>:10081/ZendServer.
