For years, I have prided myself on knowing how to set up a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl/Python) server in linux OSes based on Debian, RedHat, and SuSE.
Today, I needed to set up an internal-use survey server using LimeSurvey. I decided to build as modern of a server as possible using CentOS, nginx, MySQL, and PHP 5.5 with Zend OpCache… in short, a LEMP server.
I started out with instruction from mindfsck.net and went from there.
I must say that building my first LEMP server was much simpler than building my first LAMP server.
