PHP is most efficient when used in Fast CGI Mode.

Install php5 process manager

#apt-get install php5-fpm

Next Steps:

  • create a CSR and either self-sign or get a legit ssl certificate
  • create a file in /etc/nginx/sites-available/[your servername]
  • create a symbolic link in /etc/nginx/sites/enabled
  • restart nginx

Note: This can work without SSL. Just change port 443 to port 80 and remove the SSL lines.

Create file [your servername]:

upstream php {
   server unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
}

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name [your server name];
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
}

server { 
  listen 443;
  server_name [your server name];

  ssl on;
  ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/certs/[your server certificiate];
  ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/private/[your server key];
  ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
  keepalive_timeout 15;

  # Adjust to your installation location  
  root /usr/share/nginx/www/MPOS/public; 

  location = /favicon.ico {
    log_not_found off;
    access_log off;
  }

  location = /robots.txt {
    allow all;
    log_not_found off;
    access_log off;
  }

  location ~ /\. {
    deny all;
  }

  location ~ /(templates|include)(/|$) {
    deny all;
  }

       log_not_found off; 
       expires max;
  }
