thanks for the instructions =) some questions, why install "gcc", "make" and "pcre-devel" ? if you already have php56-mysqlnd, you need php-mysql too?

It seems that sudo nano /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf should be change to sudo nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf or else might be some nginx version conflict.
