This package represents a script to install the latest NginX, MySQL and PHP (with APC, Memcache and Suhosin):

  • NginX 1.0.10
  • PHP 5.3.8
  • APC 3.1.9
  • Suhosin Extension
  • Memcache Extension 3.0.6

All the steps are described at It's highly recommended to run this installer on a fresh installed system. This is tested with Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04, both 32 bits and 64 bits, on official Amazon EC2 Ubuntu images.

Make sure you have Git installed on your Ubuntu System:

sudo apt-get install git-core screen

Clone this repository, and get the latest stable version of this script:

git clone git://

Run the installer; I recommend running everything inside a screen session because if your connection drops you can easily come back with screen -rad

sudo screen ./

If you need an earlier version checkout the appropriate tag before running the install script:

git checkout 2.3

After the installer is finished (this will take a long time depending on your server specifications), you can go to your servers address and you will see the PHP info page. Also, if you go to:


In the "ext" folder you will also find some utilities:

  • nxensite and nxdissite commands to enable or disable sites in NginX (similar to a2ensite and a2dissite in Apache).
  • script which can upgrade the current nginx.
    • you can run it with sudo env PATH=$PATH ext/ 1.0.4 (as you can see there are a few things worth mentioning: you need to declare the current path to the sudo command in order to preserve it; you can only have one argument in a strict form x.x.x; )
    • this script is doing nothing more than reconstructing you current nginx config with the new version. It gets the previous configure options programmatically so if you used 3rd party modules it will not work. Also it saves the current config files and brings them back after the compilation was successful.
