If you want more, here are other great features included in pH7CMS (and obviously in pH7CMS Pro as well) that may interest you!

Build a Social Dating Web App with pH7CMS


  • Application Server PHP 5.5.0 or higher (Recommended Version: PHP 7.0.4 or higher).

  • Database MySQL/MariaDB 5.0.15 or higher.

  • Operating System Linux/Unix (Red Hat, CentOS, Debian, FreeBSD, Mandrake, Mac OS, etc.), Windows.

  • Web Server Apache with mod_php or with PHP in CGI, FastCGI mode (nginx, LiteSpeed and IIS should also work you should change some pieces of code and change the url rewriting to make it work).

  • URL rewriting extension module Apache, nginx, LiteSpeed, IIS (for Web.config, you have a good tutorial here).

  • Video FFmpeg

  • Specific Requirement Server has to be connected to Internet.

  • Minimum Web Space 2.0 GB

Nginx Configuration

In order to get pH7CMS working on nginx server, you need to add some custom nginx configuration.

Create /etc/nginx/ph7cms.conf and add the following:

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    index index.php;

Please note that the above code is the strict minimum and obviously you can add more by comparing with the main Apache .htaccess file.

Now in your nginx server configuration you will have to include ph7cms.conf file to complete the configuration like below:

In file, e.g., /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/yoursite.conf for Ubuntu and other OS based on Debian or /etc/nginx/conf.d/yoursite.conf for CentOS and other OS based on Red Hat.

server {
    # Port number. In most cases, 80 for HTTP and 443 for HTTPS
    listen 80;

    server_name www.yoursite.com;
    root /var/www/ph7cms_public_root;
    index index.php; #you can use index.ph7; for hidding the *.php ...
    client_max_body_size 50M;

    error_log /var/log/nginx/yoursite.error.log;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/yoursite.access.log;

    # Include ph7cms.conf. You can also directly add the "location" rule instead of including the conf file
    include /etc/nginx/ph7cms.conf;

For more information, please refer to the nginx documentation.
