User feedback has proved to be effective even if you have a community project or a commercial project. In this article, we are going to learn how to install PHP-Back on AlmaLinux 8. So, let’s get started.
Checkout the PHP-Back Feedback System Project Here.
Try this wiki on our VPS. Starting at just $5/month with 24x7 In-house customer support.

rootaccess to the system.
- LAMP Stack installed and running, for this, you can refer to one of our guides on installing the LAMP Stack (Apache, MariaDB, and PHP).
Once you're all set, we'll proceed with PHP-Back installation and configuration.
Let us begin with creating a Database and a user. We will then grant the required privileges to the user so it can interact with the Database.
mysql -u root CREATE DATABASE crowncloud; CREATE USER 'crowncloud'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'UYGVc%$#Erfgt*&^%7'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON crowncloud.* TO 'crowncloud'@'localhost'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; QUIT
The above commands will give complete access to the user
crowncloud. We would suggest using a strong and long password.
Create a new folder named PHP-Back under the public folder.
mkdir -p /var/www/html/PHP-Back
Create a new apache configuration file
dev1.domainhere.info.conf for the domain with the following command:
Add the following codes:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName dev1.domainhere.info ServerAlias dev1.domainhere.info DocumentRoot /var/www/html/PHP-Back <Directory /var/www/html/PHP-Back/> Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All </Directory> ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/dev1.domainhere.info-error.log CustomLog /var/log/httpd/dev1.domainhere.info-access.log combined </VirtualHost>
Change dev1.domainhere.info with
Your Domain Name.
Now, press the
Esc key, and type in
:wq! and press the
Enter key to save and exit the file.
Now, restart & check the apache with the following commands:
systemctl restart httpd systemctl status httpd
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https firewall-cmd --reload
Next we will install Let's Encrypt SSL cert so we can have the domain running on HTTPS.
