Install PHP 7.2 on CentOS 7 with VestaCP (How to)

16th March 2018 - Linux

I’ve published one before on the VestaCP Forums regarding how to install PHP 7.0 on Centos 7 with VestaCP. This tutorial is now for PHP 7.2 which has increased performance over PHP 7.0 and 7.1. If you have a handful of WordPress websites on PHP 5, you should upgrade. If you’re on PHP 7.0 from my previous tutorials, or are using my Server Installer Script then this will also work for you. I would advise upgrading when you have time.

Roundcube logoAfter some relentless searching I found a great plugin that supports multiple IMAP accounts for Roundcube tucked away on BitBucket. It’s a great tool that simply adds a drop down of the IMAP accounts you’ve set-up  to the top right area of Roundcube, replacing your email address in that area.

VestaCP Tools Plugin

8th October 2016 - PHP

I have created a little plugin for VestaCP called the VestaCP Tools Plugin (obviously unofficial as they don’t have any official way to create plugins yet). It’s a super simple way to get an overview of what’s going on inside your VestaCP server. It basically lists all the domain names, mail domains, cron jobs, etc globally so you don’t have to login to each individual user to get the data.

VestaCP Server Installer – The Perfect Server

5th October 2016 - Linux

NOW WORKS WITH THE NEW VERSION 0.9.8-20! 🙂

Please upgrade to VestaCP release 20. A security flaw currently affecting servers is present in release < 20. If upgrade is not yet available, please patch

I decided to create the perfect VestaCP server installer script (in my opinion) for CentOS 7 (I have only tried it on CentOS 7). Basically, you run it, it asks a few questions and then it sets up a perfect server including CSF, Monit and PHP 7 (if you want it). Amazing, right?

I was looking for a way to do this for an installation where WordPress had many different header and footer templates depending on the default template used in WordPress, and it’s rather simple to Add Yoast SEO to WordPress Theme Header. If you haven’t already got Yoast, click here to get it. It will import settings from other major WordPress SEO plugins.

Reduce PHP-FPM memory usage on VestaCP

16th May 2016 - Linux

VestaCP comes prepacked with PHP-FPM (if you select the option when installing) which manages PHP processes. By default it spawns processes that stay alive constantly eating memory. We can further optimise the PHP-FPM settings by tweaking the configuration that’s made when adding a new domain name in an attempt to reduce PHP-FPM memory usage.
