This is great script - Would it be possible to have an instruction on how to install php v5.6 ?

I was able to do that with sudo yum install -y nginx php56-fpm.x86_64

Also FYI anyone that uses phpmyadmin if you ever add -
location ~ .css {
add_header Content-Type text/css;
}
location ~ .js {
add_header Content-Type application/x-javascript;
}
It will break the ability for get_scripts.js.php to work correctly.

@moball php56 is available in Amazon Linux now. Use php56 instead of php for the yum installs.

@santoshachari looks like your resolved this for yourself on serverfault

server {

       location / {
                root   /var/www/html;
                index  index.php index.html index.htm;
        }

        location ~ \.php$ {
        fastcgi_pass    unix:/var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
            fastcgi_index   index.php;
            fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME  /usr/share/nginx/html$fastcgi_script_name;
            include         fastcgi_params;
         }

}

Thanks JohnWestlund. It was an arrow shot in the dark.

Hi, I followed this but I'm getting 403 forbidden when I access my index.php,
here's my virtual.conf

server {
    location / {
        root   /home/ec2-user/medix-clinic/public;
        index  index.php index.html index.htm;
    }

    location ~ \.php$ {
        fastcgi_pass    unix:/var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index   index.php;
        fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME  /usr/share/nginx/html$fastcgi_script_name;
        include         fastcgi_params;
    }
}

Instead of this
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/nginx/html$fastcgi_script_name;

try this
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
