LEMP stack management with LEMPer for VPS/cloud server


New Member
Hi there,

I'd like to introduce my private project, a yet another LEMP stack management tool, namely LEMPer.

LEMPer stands for Linux, Engine-X (Nginx), MariaDB and PHP installer written in Bash script. LEMPer is terminal-based LEMP stack manager for Linux (currently support Ubuntu-based) cloud or virtual server (vps) and on-premise (bare metal).

Please give it a try, and help me to improve this project by sending your issue or PR at Github repo https://github.com/joglomedia/LEMPer.

I'd be glad to hear from you all.

LEMPer v1.3.0 is out....

stands for Linux, Engine-X (Nginx), MariaDB and PHP installer. This is just a small toolkit written in Bash script that usually I use for managing Ubuntu (.deb based) LEMP stack. Our goal is to be the next CloudWays, Forge, Ploi, RunCloud, and ServerPilot free alternative which support a wide range of PHP framework (not only WordPress).

  • Ubuntu 16.04 & 18.04 (Also supports Linux Mint specifically crafted for my local development box, Debian? still on the way).
  • Nginx latest mainline and stable version.
  • Multiple PHP versions (Currently supports 5.6 [EOL], 7.0 [EOL], 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4).
  • Run PHP as user who own the file (Multi-user via FPM's pool).
  • PHP Zend OPcache.
  • PHP Loader (ionCube & SourceGuardian).
  • Supported PHP Framework and CMS:
    1. default (vanilla PHP),
    2. framework (codeigniter, laravel, lumen, phalcon, symfony),
    3. CMS (drupal, mautic, roundcube, sendy, wordpress, wordpress-ms), and
    4. more coming soon.
  • SQL database with MariaDB 10 (MySQL & PostgreSQL maybe added soon).
  • NoSQL database with MongoDB.
  • In-memory database with Redis.
  • Memory caching with Memcached.
  • Basic SSH hardening (custom port, password-less login with public key).
  • Basic iptables-based firewall (UFW, CSF, or APF).
  • Fail2ban for intrusion detection and IP address banning.
  • Lemper CLI (simple command line wrapper for managing vhost & stack).
  • No advanced GUI panel, everything terminal.

  • Ensure that you have git installed.
  • Clone LEMPer Git repositroy, git clone https://github.com/joglomedia/LEMPer.git.
