This article, I will guide you to use the script to install LAMP stack PHP 7.3 in CentOS 6.10.

About lab server and script

I use a test server running CentOS 6.10 (Final) operating system 64bit.

The script I wrote will install the software package as follows.

  • Apache: 2.2.15 (Unix).
  • MariaDB: 10.3.13
  • PHP: 7.3.3 (cli) use Remi’s repository.

Download and use script

First, we will download this script file from my gitlab repository to the server. You type the command below.

yum install wget -y && wget -O

Assign execution permissions to the script.

chmod 700

And execute the script.


Check the version and service status

You type the following commands to check the version of LAMP stack installed.

The installation of LAMP stack PHP 7.3 has been successful. You have a environment to run your website. Now you need to set up virtualhost for your website.

This script only saves time installing the LAMP stack components, but it doesn’t complete the entire environment for you. You need to edit it manually to fit your website.
