Seting up Amazon Linux: nginx + php 5.6 fpm + phalcon + mongodb


¿Is there any phalcon yum package out there?

I'm doing a setup on amazon linux, so I don't have apt but have yum. I don't want to compile phalcon on machine every time is setup, son if I have no luck with yum, I was thinking to make my own .os and then just deliver it to machines.

Any ideas wellcome!

You need to install epel repository to get full php features on centos/RH. Phalcon will be there too.

Thanks roman; you post didn't fix my issue, but I is pointing me some where.... I enabled the epel repository that came by default in amazon linux, it look like is fedora 6 based, but also looks like it doesn't have phacon in. ¿Is possible to use other repository like the one that you are using? ¿can you provide me the url so I can add it to cloudinit?

Here is my data:

ps: can you tell me how you did mark up to terminal? I tried ''' but din't work.

Yup. I've double checked which repo is exactly installed phalcon (i have always many repos) and this is REMI (not EPEL). Sorry for confusing.

Url for REMI mirrorlist in my system is https://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/$releasever/remi/mirror

To install them you can use (fedora 18+, change 20 to number of your system release):

$ wget https://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-20.rpm
$ yum install remi-release-20.rpm
$ nano /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo # Change "enabled" to 1

ps: after three backticks just write language name as described here. "bash" works too.

I'm up and running nginx + php 5.6 fpm + mongodb on amazon linux. So for the ones to come, here my cloud init:

# We update all packages
repo_upgrade: all
# Set extra repositories
    # The name of the repository
        # Any repository configuration optionsa
        # This one is required!
        baseurl: https://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/x86_64/
        enabled: 1
        gpgcheck: 0
        name: MongoDB Repository
# We install what we can we available reps
 - nginx
 - git
 - mongodb-org
# Set & start services
 - service mongod start
 - chkconfig mongod on
 - service nginx start
 - chkconfig nginx on
 - yum-config-manager --enable epel
 - wget https://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
 - rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm
 - yum-config-manager --enable remi remi-php56
 - yum install php56-php-phalcon php56-php-fpm php56-php-pecl-mongo -y
 - service php56-php-fpm start

Thanks to roman for pointing me to remi repositories.
