Lets get started

Step 1

Install the dependencies :

yum -y install gcc make gcc-c++ cpp kernel-headers.x86_64 libxml2-devel openssl-devel bzip2-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel freetype-devel openldap-devel postgresql-devel aspell-devel net-snmp-devel libxslt-devel libc-client-devel icu libicu libicu-devel gmp-devel curl-devel libmcrypt-devel pcre-devel sqlite-devel db4-devel enchant-devel libXpm-devel mysql-devel readline-devel libedit-devel recode-devel libtidy-devel libtool-ltdl-devel

Step 2

Installation of php 5.6/7.0/7.1/7.2 :

PHP 5.6

installation of php 5.6

rm -rf /usr/local/php-5-6
mkdir -p /usr/local/php-5-6
cd /usr/local/php-5-6
wget http://php.net/distributions/php-5.6.40.tar.gz
tar zxvf php-5.6.40.tar.gz
cd php-5.6.40
./configure --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php --with-config-file-scan-dir=/usr/local/php/php.d --with-zlib --enable-soap --with-mysql-sock=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock --with-pspell --enable-wddx --with-tidy --enable-exif --enable-phar --enable-bcmath --enable-calendar --with-curl --with-iconv --with-mysql --with-mysqli --with-mysql=mysqlnd --with-mysqli=mysqlnd --with-mcrypt --with-gettext --with-xsl --with-xmlrpc --with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd --enable-posix --enable-ftp --with-openssl --enable-mbstring --with-kerberos --with-bz2 --enable-sockets --enable-zip --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-freetype-dir=/usr --with-png-dir=/usr --enable-gd-native-ttf --with-pcre-regex --with-libdir=lib64 --enable-shmop --enable-intl --with-icu-dir=/usr --with-imap --with-imap-ssl --with-litespeed --with-pgsql=/usr/lib64/pgsql --with-pdo-pgsql

  3. Hi,
    I tested cwp on ip (without making any account) and it was working. Now i created one account and trying to install wp. PHP is not working for new account/user. I tested two files. One php and html. html is working fine. Please suggest what to do. I tried everything on this blog and on cwp forum.

    Thanks,

  4. Hi SANDY
    Thank you for your great tutorial.
    Update buttons in YUM manager are inactive in CWP ( they only available in Pro ).
    Is possible update manually? if yes, how?

    1. Hello James,
      the process will be automatic, it will be replaced by the php version which you’re installing

  5. Thank you so much. I have used a lot of your tutorials. I’ve bookmarked your website and keep coming back for more. Can you do a tutorial on how we can add memcached to php in “PHP Selector”? With PHP Switcher, we have the options to add all the extensions and so on but in PHP Selector we don’t have that option. I already installed memcached and redis with PHP Switcher but it doesn’t work for other PHP versions from the PHP Selector.
