Easy Steps for setting up nginx with php on Linux

I am using Fedora 10 so for that linux version i used these commands for setting up my server.

Installing Nginx:
yum install nginx

Then we create the system startup links for nginx:
/sbin/chkconfig –level 35 nginx on

We can make PHP5 work in nginx through FastCGI.For that install all this packages:
yum install lighttpd-fastcgi php-cli php-mysql php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc php-eaccelerator php-magickwand php-magpierss php-mapserver php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-mhash php-mssql php-shout php-snmp php-soap php-tidy

Then open /etc/php.ini and add the line cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1 right at the end of the file:
vi /etc/php.ini
paste this line :- cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1

To start a PHP FastCGI daemon listening on port 9000 on localhost and running as the user and group nginx, we run the following command:
/usr/bin/spawn-fcgi -a -p 9000 -u nginx -g nginx -f /usr/bin/php-cgi -P /var/run/

To restart PHP FastCGI daemon, Use this command:
ps -ef|grep php-cgi

you don’t want to type in that command manually whenever you boot the system, so to have the system execute the command automatically at boot time, open /etc/rc.local…
vi /etc/rc.local
and add the command at the end of the file:
/usr/bin/spawn-fcgi -a -p 9000 -u nginx  -g nginx -f /usr/bin/php-cgi -P /var/run/

/sbin/init.d/httpd stop
To stop apache on every startup:
/sbin/chkconfig –level 35 httpd off

First take backup of your nginx configuration file:
cp /etc/nginx/nginx.conf nginx.conf_cp
use nginx.conf file from life180 “config/nginx” folder

deconstructing date_select in rails

// Reconstruct a date object from date_select helper form params

// place this code into your application.rb file
def build_date_from_params(field_name, params)["#{field_name.to_s}(1i)"].to_i,

//You can changes order of displaying into view
<%= date_select ‘from’, ‘date’ ,:order => [:day, :month, :year] %>
<%= date_select ‘to’, ‘date’,:order => [:day, :month, :year]  %>

//goes into controller -- add your own error handling/defaults, please!
@from = build_date_from_params(:date, params[:from])
@to = build_date_from_params(:date, params[:to])

Comparing date time into controller

@users_reports = User.find(:all, :conditions=>[‘created_at >= ? and created_at < ?’, @to, @from])

Important mysql quries

Taking backup of all mysql databases

>mysqldump -uroot -p --all-databases >> all_database_dump.sql;

for single database

mysqldump -uroot -p public_wordpressmu wp_1_posts > one.sql

database import from sql file

mysql –verbose -uroot -p public_wordpressmu wp_1_posts < one.sql

Creating Trigger

create trigger
DROP TRIGGER wordpress.after_wp_1_post_update;

delimiter //

CREATE TRIGGER wordpressmu.after_wp_1_post_update

AFTER UPDATE ON wordpressmu.wp_1_posts


IF new.post_status = ‘publish’ THEN

INSERT INTO .article_posts (id,ref_id, title, status,
comments_on, created_at, updated_at) values (,,
new.post_title, new.post_status, 1, new.post_date, new.post_date);



delimiter ;

Insert from different table (migration)

INSERT INTO database_anme.TableName(id, ref_id, title, status, comments_on, created_at, updated_at) select id, id, post_title, post_status, 1, post_date,post_date from wordpress.wp_1_posts

Update multiple rows in through Sql query

Update user set status=”ok” where id in (2 ,3 ,4 ,5,6)

changing all post path and image path
UPDATE wp_1_posts SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, ‘’, ‘’);

WordPress -fetching category through sql queryfrom post

SELECT wp_1_term_taxonomy.taxonomy, wp_1_term_relationships.object_id,, wp_1_posts.post_title
FROM wp_1_posts INNER JOIN ((wp_1_terms INNER JOIN wp_1_term_taxonomy ON wp_1_terms.term_id = wp_1_term_taxonomy.term_id) INNER JOIN wp_1_term_relationships ON wp_1_term_taxonomy.term_taxonomy_id = wp_1_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id) ON wp_1_posts.ID = wp_1_term_relationships.object_id
WHERE wp_1_term_taxonomy.taxonomy=’category’ and wp_1_term_relationships.object_id=’217′
ORDER BY wp_1_term_relationships.object_id ;
