Install Apache HTTPD Server with PHP

You need to have Apache HTTPD installed.
Don’t ask why, you just need it!
I hate PHP but so many people love it and write web applications for it so you will end up needing it too.

Install (Apache HTTPD with PHP)
yum install httpd php53 php53-devel

Load at startup / start
chkconfig --levels 235 httpd on
/etc/init.d/httpd start

Test Apache HTTPD
Install lynx (if you don’t have it):
yum install lynx
And now let’s see if HTTPD is working:
lynx localhost

You should also try http://12.34.56.78 in your browser (after you replace that IP with yours). This might not work because of your firewall so if it doesn’t while lynx localhost works you should check your iptables configuration.

Test PHP
php - v

Now, pretty please, with sugar on top, follow this link to improve PHP security.
