I just curious about php next generation aka phpng aka php7 . After a few times fail with hhvm ( FreeBSD hhvm and DragonFlyBSD hhvm) I think I need to test something different for my lab experiment 🙂

The choice came to phpng and with the help from Vultr I can cure my curiosity in fast deployment. Well,

I use this configuration :

VPS location : Germany (Frankfurt), Europe.

freebsd_vps_europe1

FreeBSD version : FreeBSD 10 64 bit

freebsd_vps_europe2

Specs : 1 cpu, 768 MB memory, 15 GB storage and 1000 GB transfer.

freebsd_europe_vps_4

Great, Hit ‘Place Order’ button and I can test it.

Steps :

Most of step taken from php.net wiki of phpng.

1. Log in to server using ssh

freebsd_europe_vps5

In case of password, you can refer to server info tab and look for ‘initial password’.

For ip address, click ipv4 section for public ip.

$ ssh [email protected]
