Many people use phpmyadmin, but we’re going to do this properly to add users, databases and privileges. Heres how I did it.
Please note that this is a work in progress and is not finished yet .
Install httpd and mysql-server
yum install httpd mariadb-server php php-mysql
What you might find is that drupal 8 requires php5.5.9 lets install that;
[root@web-test-centos7 html]# yum install centos-release-scl [root@web-test-centos7 html]# yum install php55-php-mysqlnd
Open Firewall port 80 http for CentOS
sudo iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
Save firewall rules in CentOS
Alternatively, save firewall rules Ubuntu
iptables-save > /etc/iptables.rules
Save firewall rules for all other distros
iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Connect to MysQL to configure database user ‘drupal’
