To install the LAMP stack in CentOS that works with Joomla, copy and paste the commands below.
sudo yum update && sudo yum install httpd mariadb-server mariadb php php-mysql php-curl php-gd php-pear php-memcache php-pspell php-snmp php-xmlrpc
Next, you’ll need to configure a database and a database user for Joomla to use. To do that, run the commands below to start the database server.
sudo systemctl start mariadb.service systemctl enable mariadb
Then run the commands below to configure the database server.
Next, choose Yes for the rest of the prompts until you’re done. Enter current password for root (enter for none): press Enter Set root password? Y New password:
Type new root password Re-enter new password:
Confirm the password Remove anonymous users? Y
Disallow root login remotely? Y
Remove test database and access to it? Y
Reload privilege tables now? Y
After that, run the commands below to sign on to the database
mysql -u root -p
Then run the SQL statement below to create a database called JoomlaDB
CREATE DATABASE JoomlaDB;
Next, create a database user called JoomlaDBUser
CREATE USER JoomlaDBUser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'password_here';
Finally, grant all privileges to JoomlaUser for JoomlaDB
GRANT ALL ON JoomlaDB.* TO JoomlaDBUser@localhost;
Exit and you’re done. When you’re done with creating the database, go and download Joomla content. To do that, run the commands below.
cd /tmp/ && wget https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/releases/download/3.5.1/Joomla_3.5.1-Stable-Full_Package.zip
Then run the commands below to unzip or extract the downloaded content
sudo unzip -q Joomla*.zip -d /var/www/html
Next, change the ownership of the directory to Apache2
sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html
Then change the permissions on the directory by running the commands below.
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html
sudo systemctl restart httpd.service systemctl enable httpd.service
To access the site, you must enable HTTP traffic remotely since all traffic except SSH are blocked by default on CentOS. To open the post, run the commands below.
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
Reload the firewall.
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
Now try to access the page and you should see Joomla setup page.
