Installing PHP 7 on Debian Jessie

Add this to the file /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb jessie all
deb-src jessie all

Then run:

sudo apt-key add dotdeb.gpg
sudo apt-get update

Time to install PHP!

sudo apt-get install php-7.0

Installing support for certain packages is easy, just replace php5- with php7-!

Note: These instuctions do not work on ARM-based devices, such as the Raspberry Pi.


Setting up EasyEngine on Ubuntu 14.04 + PHP 5.5 + Nginx + Memcached Object cache

Start with a base Ubuntu 14.04 install, and then run:

curl -sL | sudo bash    # install easy-engine
source /etc/bash_completion.d/ee # code completion in CLI
apt-get install memcached php5-memcached # install memcached and  memcached php bridge (optionally also install php5-memcache)

ee system install                # install nginx, php, mysql, postfix
ee site create --wp  # install wordpress on    


That’s really all you need to do!
