If you’re looking to power your Anonymous VPS running Debian 11 with PHP 7.4, you’re in the right place. This guide will walk you through the process step by step, making sure you have all the tools and knowledge needed to successfully install PHP 7.4 and harness its capabilities.
Before you begin, ensure you have the following:
- An Anonymous VPS from vsys.host.
- SSH access to your VPS.
- Basic command-line knowledge.
Step 1: Connect to Your VPS
- Open your terminal or preferred SSH client.
- Connect to your Anonymous VPS using the following command:
Step 2: Update and Upgrade Packages
Once connected to your VPS, update the package list and upgrade the installed packages with the following commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Step 3: Add PHP Repository
- To install PHP 7.4, you’ll need to add the PHP repository to your system. Run the following commands:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https lsb-release ca-certificates
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg https://packages.sury.org/php/apt.gpg
echo “deb https://packages.sury.org/php/ $(lsb_release -sc) main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/php.list
Step 4: Install PHP 7.4
- Update the package list again to include the newly added PHP repository, then install PHP 7.4 along with common extensions:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install php7.4 php7.4-cli php7.4-fpm php7.4-common php7.4-mysql php7.4-json php7.4-opcache php7.4-readline
Step 5: Verify PHP Installation
- Confirm the successful installation of PHP 7.4 by checking its version:
Step 6: Configure PHP
- Locate the PHP configuration file php.ini and make necessary adjustments. You can use a text editor of your choice, like Nano or Vim. For example:
sudo nano /etc/php/7.4/cli/php.ini
- Make any required changes, such as adjusting memory limits or max execution times.
Step 7: Test PHP
- Create a simple PHP file to test if PHP is working correctly:
echo “<?php phpinfo(); ?>” | sudo tee /var/www/html/phpinfo.php
- Access the file in your browser by navigating to http://your_vps_ip/phpinfo.php.
Step 8: Secure Your Setup
- Implement security measures like a firewall to restrict access and keep your VPS safe. Refer to the documentation of your VPS provider for specific steps.
Many congratulations to you! You have completed the installation of PHP 7.4 on your Debian 11 Anonymous VPS with success. You will still be able to keep your anonymity while developing and deploying highly effective web applications thanks to this. Remember that a similar process can be applied to set up PHP on Anonymous Hosting, following the same principles outlined in this guide.
Always stay updated with security practices and the latest PHP versions to ensure the best performance and safety for your web applications. Happy coding!
