yum install epel-release yum -y update
Step 2. Install the LAMP server.
A CentOS 7 LAMP server is required. If you do not have LAMP installed, you can follow our guide here.
Step 3. Install Composer.
Download and install Composer by executing the following command:
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
[root@idroot ~]# curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php #!/usr/bin/env php Some settings on your machine may cause stability issues with Composer. If you encounter issues, try to change the following: Your PHP (5.3.3) is quite old, upgrading to PHP 5.3.4 or higher is recommended. Composer works with 5.3.2+ for most people, but there might be edge case issues. Downloading... Composer successfully installed to: /root/composer.phar Use it: php composer.phar

composer.phar’ file executable by running the following command:

mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
Use the following command to update it to the latest version for the composer:

Step 4. Create Nette Application.
Let’s navigate to the web document root and use composer to create a new Nette application using the following commands:
cd /var/www/html composer create-project nette/sandbox myapp
We will need to change some folders permissions:
chown -R apache.apache myapp chmod -R 755 myapp chmod -R 777 myapp/tmp myapp/log
Step 5. Access Nette Application.
At this stage, you have successfully configured the Nette framework on your local host system. Open your favorite browser and navigate to
http://localhost/myapp/www/ and complete the required steps to finish the installation.
Step 5. Configuring Apache web server for Nette.
We will create an Apache virtual host for your Craft CMS website. First, create ‘
/etc/httpd/conf.d/vhosts.conf’ file with using a text editor of your choice:
nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhosts.conf IncludeOptional vhosts.d/*.conf
Next, create the virtual host:
mkdir /etc/httpd/vhosts.d/ nano /etc/httpd/vhosts.d/yourdomain.com.conf
Add the following lines:
<VirtualHost YOUR_SERVER_IP:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/nette/www" ServerName yourdomain.com ServerAlias www.yourdomain.com ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com-error_log" CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com-access_log" combined <Directory "/var/www/html/nette/"> DirectoryIndex index.html index.php Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> </VirtualHost>
Save and close the file. Restart the apache service for the changes to take effect:
systemctl restart httpd.service
