php 7

On this post I'll show you how to run Drupal 8 or any PHP application using Apache HTTP Server with mod_event enabled and PHP 7-FPM

First we need to get the required PHP and Apache packages from the Ubuntu repository:

$sudo apt-get install php7.0-fpm apache2 libapache2-mod-fastcgi

then we need to disable the worker that's enabled by default and switch to mpm_event:

$sudo a2dismod mpm_worker
$sudo a2enmod mpm_event

Now that we have enabled the event module, let's activate some required extra apache modules needed to run our apps like Drupal:

$sudo a2enmod alias rewrite fastcgi expires headers remoteip ssl actions

We need to create a config file for PHP-FPM so apache is aware of how to treat it:

$sudo nano /etc/apache2/conf-available/php-fpm.conf
