Raspberry pi | Install php5, mySQL & phpMyAdmin

Apache Setup Raspberry pi mini computer to dedicated game server. LAMP. Apache Raspberry pi mini computer. Dedicated game server.
That is simply just another http web server powered by Apache Software
and the Raspberry pi Foundation with Raspbian Debian OS Stretch Lite on it.

Initially bring your system up to date and reboot your machine if required.

user@raspberry:~ $ sudo su
root@raspberry:~# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
user@raspberry:~ $ reboot

Install php5

Fundamental services are required to turn the Raspberry pi into a real web server consisting of Apache - the web server itself -, php script language and MySQL database module. When installed on a Linux based system, the collective term is LAMP.

Linux  Apache  MySQL  PHP

To allow the web server to process php files, you'll need to install php and the php module for Apache.
Start your terminal program e.g. PuTTy and login to your Raspberry. Continue as superuser.

user@raspberry:~ $ sudo su
root@raspberry:~# apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
root@raspberry:~# service apache2 restart

The root directory for web contents was /var/www in Raspbian Wheezy but is /var/www/html in Raspbian Stretch Lite.

Rename the file /var/www/html/index.html.

Be sure to check you’re not deleting files you need before running.

root@raspberry:~# cd /var/www/html
root@raspberrypi:/var/www/html# mv index.html index.old

Create a simple file index.php in /var/www/html.

root@raspberrypi:/var/www/html# nano index.php

index.php php5 phpinfo();

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

You can use a plain phpinfo() info page to view the current php details for your web server.
This file outputs a large amount of information:

◦ Information about php compilation options and extensions
◦ php version
◦ Server information and environment (if compiled as a module)
◦ php environment
◦ OS version information, paths, master and local values of configuration options
◦ http headers
◦ php license

Install mySQL

MySQL is a very popular database engine for example to 🔗 phpBB Forum. Like the php language script, its overwhelming presence on web servers enhanced its popularity. Most likely php & MySQL both work together.

We need to install MySQL server and the Python bindings for mySQL.

When installing MySQL you will be asked for a root password. Remember this to allow your website to access the MySQL database.

user@raspberry:~ $ sudo su
root@raspberry:~# apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client php5-mysql
root@raspberry:~# service apache2 restart

Install phpMyAdmin

phpMyAdmin is a software tool to bring MySQL to the Web. phpMyAdmin is a tool written in php intended to handle the administration of MySQL. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add columns, execute any SQL statement, manage indexes on columns.

user@raspberry:~ $ sudo su
root@raspberry:~# apt-get install phpmyadmin

The installation routine will ask you for few configuration options.

When installation is finished, open /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini with a text editor and find the Dynamic Extensions section ; Dynamic Extensions ; .

root@raspberry:~# nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Just add between Dynamic & Module the two lines:

; Dynamic Extensions ;

extension=msqli.so OR extension=/PATH_TO_EXTENSION/msqli.so
extension=msql.so OR extension=/PATH_TO_EXTENSION/msql.so

; Module Settings ;

Now you have the MySQL extensions for php enabled.

Afterwards, run this command:

root@raspberry:~# sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/html/phpmyadmin

This links your server's Document Root to /var/www/html on Raspbian Stretch Lite OS.

Due to security reasons you should use a different sub-folder.

For example /var/www/html/a-d-m-i-n/phpmyadmin

Restart apache service.

root@raspberry:~# service apache2 restart

Access phpMyAdmin by http://www.yourdomain.tld/phpmyadmin .

Raspi is not a particularly fast machine. I think that Wordpress is bit too heavy for the little Pi.
