Why Use LEMP App?

Avoid the hassle of configuring a LEMP server and use our ready-to-go configuration with a MariaDB (MySQL) database, modern PHP installation, and the NGINX web server.

Instantly write PHP pages that are visible on the internet without having to wrestle with firewall settings.


NGINX is a high performance web server. By design, it is capable of handling more than 10,000 simultaneous connections. Power users can also dive deep into other features offered by NGINX, such as file caching and load balancing.

LEMP Details

Full access to modify this application to suit any development project is possible upon deployment by connecting to the server via console or SSH as the root user.

The web server document root is configured as /usr/share/nginx/html/

Verify Web Server Functionality

To quickly verify the NGINX web server is responding, connect to the server via console or SSH and run:
# curl --head --insecure https://localhost

"HTTP/1.1 200 OK" should be visible in the output (often the first line returned).

MariaDB (MySQL)

Access the database server as the root user with the credentials saved in /root/.my.cnf:
# mysql -u root

NGINX Service Management

To stop NGINX:
# systemctl stop nginx.service

To start NGINX:
# systemctl start nginx.service

To verify the NGINX service status:
# systemctl status nginx.service

To disable NGINX starting on server boot:
# systemctl disable nginx.service

To enable NGINX starting on server boot:
# systemctl enable nginx.service
