To let other different users login to Amazon's EC2 instance

Solution 1:

On the local machine, get public key for later use:

$ test -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub && cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub || ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "me@example.com" && cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

On the remote EC2 instance, create a new user and add the new user to sudo group:

# useradd USER_NAME -m -s /bin/bash -c 'admin user' && usermod -aG sudo USER_NAME

# visudo

%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
or
USER_NAME ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

# sudo su - USER_NAME

$ mkdir ~/.ssh \
&& chmod 700 ~/.ssh \
&& touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys \
&& chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys \
&& vim ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

On the local machine:

$ ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa -p 22 USER_NAME@1.2.3.4
or
$ mosh --ssh="ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa -p 22" USER_NAME@1.2.3.4

Solution 2:

# vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

PasswordAuthentication = yes

# systemctl restart sshd.service

Solution 3:

Add a new user:

# useradd testuser -m -c 'test user'

Switch to the new account so that newly created files have the proper ownership:

# sudo su - testuser

$ mkdir ~/.ssh

$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh

Note: this step is very important; without these exact file permissions, you will not be able to log into this account using SSH.

$ touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Login to Amazon Web Services console. Then, go to EC2 and create a new key pair: machineName_userName.

It will generate a machineName_userName.pem file for you to download.

Upload machineName_userName.pem to your Linux instance.

Change the permission of the machineName_userName.pem:

# chmod 400 machineName_userName.pem

Retrieving the Public Key for Your Key Pair on Linux:

# ssh-keygen -y

When prompted to enter the file in which the key is, specify the path to your .pem file; for example:

/path_to_key_pair/machineName_userName.pem

The command returns the public key:

ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQClKsfkNkuSevGj3eYhCe53pcjqP3maAhDFcvBS7O6V

BQoQzd8v7yeb7OzlPnWOyN0qFU0XA246RA8QFYiCNYwI3f05p6KLxEXAMPLE

Edit the authorized_keys file with your favorite text editor and paste the public key for your key pair into the file:

# sudo su - testuser

$ vim ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQClKsfkNkuSevGj3eYhCe53pcjqP3maAhDFcvBS7O6V

BQoQzd8v7yeb7OzlPnWOyN0qFU0XA246RA8QFYiCNYwI3f05p6KLxEXAMPLE

Remove the private key from the server if you do not need it anymore:

# rm /path_to_key_pair/machineName_userName.pem

To move a MySQL data directory to another directory:

# mysql -e "SELECT @@datadir;"
+-----------------+
| @@datadir       |
+-----------------+
| /var/lib/mysql/ |
+-----------------+

# systemctl stop mysql
# systemctl status mysql

# vim /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf
datadir         = /home/mysql

# vim /etc/apparmor.d/tunables/alias
alias /var/lib/mysql/ -> /home/mysql/,

Note: We need to tell AppArmor to let MySQL write to the new directory by creating an alias between the default directory and the new location.

Note: If you skipped the AppArmor configuration step, you would see the following error message:

Job for mysql.service failed because the control process 
exited with error code. See "systemctl status mysql.service" 
and "journalctl -xe" for details.

# systemctl restart apparmor
# systemctl restart mysql

To move the existing to MySQL directory to /home:

# rsync -av /var/lib/mysql /home

Or, you can run the following commands to initialize the MySQL data directory:

# mkdir /home/mysql \
&& chown mysql:mysql /home/mysql \
&& chmod 700 /home/mysql \
&& mysqld --initialize-insecure

Note: This option is used to initialize a MySQL installation by creating the data directory and populating the tables in the mysql system database.

Note: If you use --initialize, the random initial password is stored at: tail -n 1 /var/log/mysql/error.log.

Note: You can also start mysqld with --skip-grant-tables to access the database and change the password.

# systemctl start mysql && systemctl status mysql

Login MySQL with the above commands if you initialized MySQL data directory with --initialize-insecure option.
# mysql -u root --skip-password
mysql> ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'new_password';

Check the current MySQL data directory:

# mysql -e "SELECT @@datadir;"
+--------------+
| @@datadir    |
+--------------+
| /home/mysql/ |
+--------------+

To change the root password if you did not know the current root password:

# vim /root/tmp/mysql-init.txt
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'YourPassWordHere' WITH GRANT OPTION;
GRANT SUPER ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost';
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

# mysqld --init-file=/root/tmp/mysql-init.txt

Use RAM-DISK for tmpdir:

# mysql -e "SHOW GLOBAL STATUS LIKE 'Created_tmp%tables';"
# mysql -e "SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE '%table_size';"

# mkdir -p /mnt/ramdisk
# mount -t tmpfs -o size=512M tmpfs /mnt/ramdisk
# chown mysql:mysql /mnt/ramdisk

# id mysql

uid=123(mysql) gid=130(mysql) groups=130(mysql)

# vim /etc/fstab

tmpfs           /mnt/ramdisk     tmpfs   rw,uid=123,gid=130,mode=1770,size=512M    0       0

Note: You need to change the uid and gid of MySQL.

# mysql -e "SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'tmpdir';"

# vim /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.mysqld

/mnt/ramdisk rw,
owner /mnt/ramdisk/** rwkl,

Note: The first line gives read and write access to the directory, the second line gives read, write, lock(k) and link(l) access to all the files and the directories inside the directory owned by the mysql user.

# vim /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf

[mysqld]
tmpdir      = /mnt/ramdisk

# systemctl restart apparmor.service
# systemctl restart mysql.service

Enable the following modules to talk to PHP:

# cat /etc/apache2/conf-available/php7.1-fpm.conf

# a2enmod proxy proxy_fcgi rewrite setenvif ssl
# a2enconf php7.1-fpm.conf

If your apache is talking to PHP through a TCP socket (127.0.0.1:9000) instead of a Unix socket (/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock), you will need to modify the following line:

# vim /etc/apache2/conf-available/php7.1-fpm.conf
    <FilesMatch ".+\.ph(ar|p|tml)$">
        #SetHandler "proxy:unix:/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock|fcgi://localhost"
        SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000"
    </FilesMatch>

# apache2ctl configtest
# systemctl restart apache2 && systemctl status apache2

Install and enable the following Apache modules if you are connecting to PHP through a TCP socket (127.0.0.1:9000):

# apt-get install libapache2-mod-fastcgi
# a2enmod fastcgi rewrite setenvif


Edit apache2.conf:

# vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

AllowOverride All

Set up a virtual host:

# cd /etc/apache2/sites-available
# cp 000-default.conf mag2.local.conf
# vim mag2.local

# apache2ctl -V
# apache2ctl -t
# apache2ctl -M
# apache2ctl configtest

The output of mysqlbinlog can be used as the input of the mysql client to redo the statements contained in the binary log:

# cd /var/log/mysql
# mysqlbinlog mysql-bin.000001 | mysql -u root -p

Check CentOS version:

# cat /etc/redhat-release

CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core)

Set up Network:

# ip addr

2: eno16777736: <broadcast> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000

# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno16777736

BOOTPROTO=none

IPADDR=192.168.6.9
PREFIX=24
GATEWAY=192.168.6.1
DNS1=8.8.8.8
DNS2=8.8.4.4

PEERDNS=yes
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no

Note: USERCTL=no // Non-root users are not allowed to control this device.

# systemctl restart network

# ip addr

# /bin/ipcalc --netmask 192.168.6.9/24

NETMASK=255.255.255.0

# cat /etc/resolv.conf

Change hostname:

# hostnamectl status

# hostnamectl set-hostname cent-dev.local

# hostnamectl status

# cat /etc/hostname

If you are using Amazon's AWS EC2 instance, append the following string at the bottom of the file to ensure that the hostname is preserved between restarts/reboots:

# vim /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg

preserve_hostname: true

More info: https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/linux-static-hostname-rhel7-centos7/

Set up timezone:

# timedatectl
# timedatectl list-timezones
# timedatectl set-timezone America/Vancouver
# timedatectl

Set up date and time:

# date +%Y%m%d -s "20081128"
# date +%T -s "10:13:13"

To sync date and time automatically:

# yum -y update

# yum -y install ntp

# ntpdate 0.us.pool.ntp.org

Note: ntpdate is deprecated as of September 2012

You can change which ntp server to use:

# vi /etc/ntp.conf

Set ntpd to start up on boot time:

# systemctl enable ntpd.service
# systemctl restart ntpd.service

# ps auxww|grep -i ntpd
# ntpstat
# timedatectl

Set the Hardware Clock to the current System Time:

# hwclock --systohc

Note: hwclock is a utility for accessing the hardware clock. Hardware clock is independent of the operation system you use and works even when the machine is shut down. This program is used to find out the time from the hardware clock and set the system time at boot time.

Update the ~/.bashrc configuration:

# vi ~/.bashrc

Install EPEL and additional repositories on CentOS and Red Hat:

# yum -y install wget
# yum -y install epel-release

http://blog.ijun.org/2014/11/install-epel-and-additional.html
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL

Subscribing to the IUS Community Project Repository:

# curl 'https://setup.ius.io/' -o setup-ius.sh
# bash setup-ius.sh

# ls -l /etc/yum.repos.d/ius*

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1150 Apr 16  2015 /etc/yum.repos.d/ius-archive.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1131 Apr 16  2015 /etc/yum.repos.d/ius-dev.repo

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1150 Apr 16  2015 /etc/yum.repos.d/ius-testing.repo

To find which package provides the ifconfig command:

# yum provides ifconfig

To get the ifconfig command into our system:

# yum -y install net-tools

# ifconfig | awk '/inet /{print $2}'

To get the ss command into our system:

# yum -y install iproute

To install DNS tools:

# yum install bind-utils

Install tmux:
# yum -y install tmux

# vi ~/.tmux.conf

# tmux
or
# tmux a -d

Install vim-enhanced:

It is actually very easy to compile Vim by yourself. Please refer to the following article if you are interested in:

http://blog.ijun.org/2016/07/compile-latest-vim-74-on-centos7.html

# vim --version
-syntax
-python

# yum -y install vim-enhanced

# vim --version
+syntax
+python

# yum list installed | grep -i vim
# yum info vim-enhanced

Install tree:

# yum -y install tree

Install fortune game:

# yum -y install fortune-mod.x86_64

Install Glances:

# yum -y install glances

Install Git:

# yum install git

Or from IUS repo (preferred):

# yum install git2u

Install NetCat:

# yum -y install nmap-ncat
# nc localhost 8080

Install firewalld:

# yum -y install firewalld

(optional)
# yum install firewall-config

Note: If you don't mind using a GUI you could use firewall-config instead. If you need something for the console you will have to use firewall-cmd instead.

# systemctl enable firewalld

# systemctl restart firewalld

Install MariaDB:

# yum install mariadb-server

Setting UTF8 defaults for MySQL:

We recommend against MySQL's utf8 character set, since it does not support 4-byte unicode characters, and strings containing them will be truncated. This is fixed by the newer utf8mb4 character set.

# vim /etc/my.cnf

[mysqld]
# Version 5.5.3 introduced "utf8mb4", which is recommended
collation-server = utf8mb4_general_ci # Replaces utf8_general_ci
character-set-server = utf8mb4 # Replaces utf8

default-storage-engine = InnoDB

max_allowed_packet = 16M

# This option makes InnoDB to store each created table into its own .ibd file.
innodb_file_per_table

# Don't resolve hostnames. All hostnames are IP's or 'localhost'.
skip-name-resolve

#The number of simultaneous clients allowed.
max_connections = 200

# uncomment to disable the InnoDB storage engine
#skip-innodb

innodb_buffer_pool_size = 4G
innodb_additional_mem_pool_size = 16M
innodb_log_file_size = 256M
innodb_log_buffer_size = 8M

# systemctl enable mariadb.service

# systemctl restart mariadb.service

# systemctl is-active mariadb.service

# /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

# mysql -u root -p

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'test'@'192.168.0.%' IDENTIFIED BY '123456';
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

mysql> CREATE DATABASE mydb DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 DEFAULT COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

Set up .my.cnf configuration file:

# touch ~/.my.cnf
# chmod 600 ~/.my.cnf
# vim ~/.my.cnf

[client]
host = localhost
port = 3306
user = root
password = MyPassword

Add New Rule to firewalld to allow access to MySQL:

# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=trusted --add-source=192.168.0.1/32
# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=trusted --add-port=3306/tcp
# firewall-cmd --reload
# firewall-cmd --zone=trusted --list-all

or

# systemctl restart firewalld.service

Check out the zone file to inspect the XML configuration:

# cat /etc/firewalld/zones/public.xml
# cat /etc/firewalld/zones/trusted.xml

Install Apache:

# yum install httpd mod_ssl

Or from IUS repo (preferred):

# yum install httpd24u httpd24u-mod_ssl

# systemctl status httpd

● httpd.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)

Note: it will tell you if the service starts on boot.

# systemctl enable httpd.service

# systemctl restart httpd.service

# systemctl reload httpd.service

# systemctl -l status httpd.service

# journalctl -xn

# systemctl is-active httpd.service

# apachectl configtest

# httpd -V

# apachectl graceful

httpd service default configuration files:

  • Default config file: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
  • Configuration files which load modules : /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/ directory (e.g. PHP)
  • Select MPMs (Processing Model) as loadable modules [worker, prefork (default)] and event: /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/00-mpm.conf
  • Default ports: 80 and 443 (SSL)
  • Default log files: /var/log/httpd/{access_log,error_log}

Set up a symbolic link:

# cd / ; ln -s var/www/html www

Install PHP:

# yum install php php-mysqlnd php-fpm php-gd php-mbstring php-pdo php-xml php-soap
# yum install php-pear php-devel pcre-devel gcc gcc-c++ make

# systemctl restart httpd.service

Note: you need php-devel pcre-devel gcc make for PHP APC. Try to add httpd-devel if failed.

You need the php-mcrypt to run Magento:

# yum install php-mcrypt

http://blog.ijun.org/2014/11/how-to-install-php-mcrypt-on-centos-7.html

Open port 80 firewall access:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=http/tcp
# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=https/tcp

# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=http/tcp
# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=https/tcp

# firewall-cmd --reload
or
# systemctl restart firewalld.service

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --list-all

Allow a IP address with a specific port:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-rich-rule='rule family="ipv4" source address="1.2.3.4" port protocol="tcp" port="3306" accept'

To remove the rule:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --remove-rich-rule='rule family="ipv4" source address="1.2.3.4" port protocol="tcp" port="3306" accept'

Block a IP address:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-rich-rule='rule family="ipv4" source address="1.2.3.4" reject'

To remove the rule:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --remove-rich-rule='rule family="ipv4" source address="1.2.3.4" reject'

If you get 403 forbidden error, then you probably have problem with SELinux, to deal with Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux):

# namei -l /var/www/html/magento19

# ls -dZ /var/www/html
drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 /var/www/html

# chcon -R --reference=/var/www/html /var/www/html/magento19
Or
# chcon -R --type=httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/html/magento19
Or for read and write permission:
# chcon -R -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /var/www/html/magento19/app/etc

# ps auxwwZ | grep httpd
# ls -dZ /var/www/html/magento19/app/etc
# tail /var/log/audit/audit.log
# tail /var/log/messages

To turn off Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux):

# setenforce 0

To turn on Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux):

# setenforce 1

To get the status of a system running SELinux:

# sestatus

Set up Apache MPM and PHP-FPM:

With Apache 2.4, the official module to use is mod_proxy_fcgi instead of the ancient mod_fastcgi. That module, as well as mod_fcgid, were third party modules.

Note: mod_proxy_fcgi now supports network sockets since Apache 2.4.9 ( Unix socket support for mod_proxy_fcgi )

List built-in or shared modules:

# httpd -M | grep -iE 'proxy_module|proxy_fcgi_module|rewrite_module|mpm_event_module|deflate_module|vhost_alias_module|ssl_module'

 deflate_module (shared)
 rewrite_module (shared)
 vhost_alias_module (shared)
 mpm_event_module (shared)
 proxy_module (shared)
 proxy_fcgi_module (shared)
 ssl_module (shared)

List loaded modules:

# httpd -t -D DUMP_MODULES | grep -iE 'proxy_module|proxy_fcgi_module|rewrite_module|mpm_event_module|deflate_module|vhost_alias_module|ssl_module'

 deflate_module (shared)
 rewrite_module (shared)
 vhost_alias_module (shared)
 mpm_event_module (shared)
 proxy_module (shared)
 proxy_fcgi_module (shared)
 ssl_module (shared)

Edit mpm.conf:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/00-mpm.conf

Comment out the following line:

LoadModule mpm_prefork_module modules/mod_mpm_prefork.so

Uncomment the following line:

LoadModule mpm_event_module modules/mod_mpm_event.so

Make sure the following two lines exist:

# grep -E 'mod_proxy.so|mod_proxy_fcgi' /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/00-proxy.conf

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

Add the "if checking" surround the following three lines:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
  <FilesMatch \.php$>
    SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
  </FilesMatch>
</IfModule>

Add the "if checking" surround the following two lines:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
  php_value session.save_handler "files"
  php_value session.save_path    "/var/lib/php/session"
</IfModule>

Change the following line:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

<Directory "/var/www/html">
  AllowOverride All

  # New directive needed in Apache 2.4.3: 
  Require all granted
</Directory>

Create and Edit the vhosts file:

Apache supports talking to php-fpm through SetHandler directive since Apache 2.4.9. We no longer need to use the ProxyPassMatch directive.

As the ProxyPassMatch directive is evaluated as the very beginning of each request:
- AddType (for MultiView) or DirectoryIndex directives are not usable
- right management per directory is not available
- each Alias directive needs another proxy rule

The SetHandler directive, evaluated later, is much more flexible / usable.

To redirect the PHP scripts to the FPM server:

<FilesMatch \.php$>
         SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000"
</FilesMatch>

Note: You will also need to enable the following modules:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

Warning: if you remove or disable mod_php, you also need to remove all the php_value and php-flag directives:

<IfModule  mod_php5.c>
        php_value session.save_handler "files"
        php_value session.save_path    "/var/lib/php/session"
        php_value soap.wsdl_cache_dir  "/var/lib/php/wsdlcache"
</IfModule>

xdebug.collect_vars = 0

; When set to '1' the trace files will be appended to, instead of being overwritten in subsequent requests.

xdebug.trace_options = 1

To search all other php modules:

# yum search php

Edit php.ini:

# vim /etc/php.ini

cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0

The default value is 1, which is an extremely insecure setting because it tells PHP to attempt to execute the closest file it can find if a PHP file does not match exactly. This basically would allow users to craft PHP requests in a way that would allow them to execute scripts that they shouldn't be allowed to execute.

Note: if I set it to "cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0", I would get "Access denied (403)" (see security.limit_extensions) or no input file specified error when setting up Magento. You can either:

1. commented out the cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0 line.
2. set cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
3. try to set "security.limit_extensions = " in the /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf file.

Install XCache:

XCache is a fast, stable ​PHP opcode cacher that has been proven and is now running on production servers under high load. It is tested (on linux) and supported on all of the latest ​PHP release branches such as PHP_5_1 PHP_5_2 PHP_5_3 PHP_5_4 PHP_5_5. It is more stable than APC.

Warning: APC would cause segfault segmentation fault. Use XCache instead.

# yum install php-xcache xcache-admin

Copy the apc.php file:

# cp /usr/share/pear/apc.php /var/www/html

Set up php-fpm:

Apach 2.4.8 mod_proxy: Added support for unix domain sockets as the backend server endpoint.

# vim /etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf

If you are using Apach 2.4.8 or above, please change the following line from:

listen = 127.0.0.1:9000

To:

listen = /var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock

Now, there are different ways to actually forward requests for .php files to this module, ranging from everything (using ProxyPass) to very specific or rewritten files or patterns (using mod_rewrite with the [P] flag).

The method I chose (using ProxyPassMatch) lies somewhere in between these in complexity and flexibility, since it allows you to set one rule for all PHP content of a specific vhost, but will only proxy .php files (or URLs that contain the text .php somewhere in the request).

TCP socket (IP and port) approach

Edit the configuration for a vhost of your choice, and add the following line to it:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/httpd-vhosts.conf

ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/path/to/your/documentroot/$1

### a request for / will need to be mapped to a resource on the fcgi backend. Failure to address this may cause a blank response, commonly known as a WSOD (White Screen of Death), especially if only a request URI containing the php extension is proxied, such as this example. The processing chain will first map a request for / to /index.php, then proxy to the PHP-FPM backend correctly.
    DirectoryIndex /index.php index.php index.html index.htm

Note: please do change /path/to/your/documentroot to for example /var/www/html/drupal8

Look confusing ? Let's run through it:

ProxyPassMatch

only proxy content that matches the specified regex pattern; in this case:

^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$

from the documentroot onwards, match everything ending in .php (with the dot escaped), optionally followed by a slash and any continued path you like (some applications use this so-called PathInfo to pass arguments to the php script.)

The ^ (caret) and $ (dollar) signs are used to anchor both the absolute start and end of the URL, to make sure no characters from the request escape our pattern match.

The nested parentheses enable us to refer to the entire request-URI (minus the leading slash) as $1, while still keeping the trailing pathinfo optional.

fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000

forward via mod_proxy_fcgi, using the fastCGI protocol, to the port our php-fpm daemon is listening on.

This determines which fastcgi pool will serve requests proxied by this rule.

/path/to/your/documentroot/

IMPORTANT! This must exactly match the real filesystem location of your php files, because that is where the php-fpm daemon will look for them.

php-fpm just interprets the php files passed to it; it is not a web server, nor does it understand your web servers' namespace, virtualhost layout, or aliases.

IMPORTANT! Read the above again

$1

expands to the entire request-URI from the original request, minus the leading slash (because we already added that above.)

DirectoryIndex /index.php index.php index.html index.htm

Note: a request for / will need to be mapped to a resource on the fcgi backend. Failure to address this may cause a blank response, commonly known as a WSOD (White Screen of Death), especially if only a request URI containing the php extension is proxied, such as this example. The processing chain will first map a request for / to /index.php, then proxy to the PHP-FPM backend correctly.

unix domain socket (UDS) approach

Edit the configuration for a vhost of your choice, and add the following line to it:

# vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/httpd-vhosts.conf

ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ unix:/path/to/socket.sock|fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/path/to/your/documentroot/

unix:/path/to/socket.sock

the path to your fpm socket

Note that with this approach, the captured request URI ($1) is not passed after the path

Enable php-fpm to start on boot:

# systemctl enable php-fpm.service

Start our PHP processor:

# systemctl restart php-fpm.service
# systemctl restart httpd.service

Test PHP:

# php -r "echo 'hi';";

Check the PHP-FPM setting:

<?php
echo phpinfo();
?>

You should see the message: Server API: FPM/FastCGI

# httpd -V

Server MPM:     event

To create a locked user account:

# useradd dev -m -c 'git user'

Unlock the account by issuing the passwd command to assign a password and set password aging guidelines:

# passwd dev

Add a new group called web:

# groupadd web

Add the dev user to the web group:

# usermod -a -G web dev

Show The Groups a User Is In:

# groups dev
# id -Gn dev

Find out the primary group of a user:

# getent group dev

To allow Apache to connect network and sendmail send email:

# setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1
# setsebool -P httpd_can_sendmail 1

Note: -P in the above command means Persistent (across reboots)

# getsebool -a | grep -i httpd_can

httpd_can_network_connect --> on
httpd_can_sendmail --> on

# sestatus -b | grep httpd_can

httpd_can_network_connect                   on
httpd_can_sendmail                          on

Install Memcached:

# yum install memcached
# yum install php-pecl-memcached

# systemctl enable memcached.service
# systemctl restart memcached.service

# memcached-tool localhost:11211 display
# memcached-tool localhost:11211 stats
# memcached-tool localhost:11211 dump

Install redis server:

# yum install redis
# yum install php-pecl-redis

Two important redis server configuration files:

# less /etc/redis.conf
# less /etc/redis-sentinel.conf

Start the Redis server:

# systemctl start redis.service

Check the running status of Redis server:

# systemctl status redis.service

To test the installation of Redis:

# redis-cli ping

PONG

To enable Redis server at system's booting time:

# systemctl enable redis.service

To get the listening port 6379 of Redis server:

# ss -nlp | grep redis

To install Redis PHP extension:

# pecl install redis

Add the following line to /etc/php.d/redis.ini:

# echo 'extension=redis.so' >> /etc/php.d/redis.ini

Check to see if Redis PHP extension is installed:

# pecl list | grep redis

redis   2.2.7   stable

Restart Apache and PHP-FPM:

# systemctl restart httpd.service
# systemctl restart php-fpm.service

To see if Redis extension is being loaded by PHP:

# php -m | grep redis

To allow Apache to connect to the Redis server:

# setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1

Note: If you have turned on Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), httpd scripts by default are not allowed to connect out to the network.

To list all Redis Databases:

# redis-cli info keyspace

To clear remove delete all data from a particular Redis database:

# redis-cli

127.0.0.1:6379> info keyspace
127.0.0.1:6379> select 0
127.0.0.1:6379> keys *
127.0.0.1:6379> flushdb
127.0.0.1:6379> keys *

To clear remove delete all data from all Redis database:

# redis-cli flushall

Dumping all key/value pairs in a Redis db:

# redis-cli -n 0 keys \*

# redis-cli -n 0 keys \* | xargs -n 1 redis-cli dump

Note: the 0 is the database number.

To store PHP sessions in Redis:

Storing PHP session files in RAM can be much more efficient than storing on disk and can also save some IO. To configure this, you should modify the main php.ini file and change session.save_handler to redis.

# vim /etc/php.ini

session.save_handler = redis

session.save_path = "tcp://127.0.0.1:6379"

# systemctl restart php-fpm

# php -r 'echo phpinfo();' | grep redis

Registered save handlers => files user redis
session.save_handler => redis => redis

# vim test.php

<?php
session_start();

$_SESSION['favcolor'] = 'green';

echo '<pre>' . print_r($_SESSION, TRUE) . '</pre>';
?>

# php test.php

# redis-cli info keyspace
# Keyspace
db0:keys=68,expires=39,avg_ttl=2977110
db2:keys=427,expires=427,avg_ttl=1856886

# redis-cli -n 0 keys \*| grep -i session

PHPREDIS_SESSION:vhauaf8qpdj146kirsbivrh4i7

Note: the 0 is the database number.

Redis setup hints

  • We suggest deploying Redis using the Linux operating system. Redis is also tested heavily on osx, and tested from time to time on FreeBSD and OpenBSD systems. However Linux is where we do all the major stress testing, and where most production deployments are working.
  • Make sure to set the Linux kernel overcommit memory setting to 1. Add vm.overcommit_memory = 1 to /etc/sysctl.conf and then reboot or run the command sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1 for this to take effect immediately.
  • Make sure to disable Linux kernel feature transparent huge pages, it will affect greatly both memory usage and latency in a negative way. This is accomplished with the following command: echo never > sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled.
  • Make sure to setup some swap in your system (we suggest as much as swap as memory). If Linux does not have swap and your Redis instance accidentally consumes too much memory, either Redis will crash for out of memory or the Linux kernel OOM killer will kill the Redis process.
  • Set an explicit maxmemory option limit in your instance in order to make sure that the instance will report errors instead of failing when the system memory limit is near to be reached.
  • If you are using Redis in a very write-heavy application, while saving an RDB file on disk or rewriting the AOF log Redis may use up to 2 times the memory normally used. The additional memory used is proportional to the number of memory pages modified by writes during the saving process, so it is often proportional to the number of keys (or aggregate types items) touched during this time. Make sure to size your memory accordingly.
  • Use daemonize no when run under daemontools.
  • Even if you have persistence disabled, Redis will need to perform RDB saves if you use replication, unless you use the new diskless replication feature, which is currently experimental.
  • If you are using replication, make sure that either your master has persistence enabled, or that it does not automatically restarts on crashes: slaves will try to be an exact copy of the master, so if a master restarts with an empty data set, slaves will be wiped as well.

Running Redis on EC2

  • Use HVM based instances, not PV based instances.
  • Don't use old instances families, for example: use m3.medium with HVM instead of m1.medium with PV.
  • The use of Redis persistence with EC2 EBS volumes needs to be handled with care since sometimes EBS volumes have high latency characteristics.
  • You may want to try the new diskless replication (currently experimetnal) if you have issues when slaves are synchronizing with the master.
