👀 Software Overview 🎉

pH7 Dating CMS is a Social community CMS based on a powerful modular OOP architecture, and using the MVC architecture (Model-View-Controller).

It is designed with the KISS principle in mind, and the whole source code can be read and understood in minutes. For better flexibility, the software uses PDO (PHP Data Objects) abstraction which allows the choice of the database. The principle of development is DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) aimed at reducing repetition of information of all kinds (no duplicate code) and YAGNI principle to avoid unused code/not needed functionality in the software.

This Free and Open Source Social Dating Site Builder wants to be low resource-intensive, powerful, stable and secure. The software also comes with 40+ system modules and is based on pH7Framework (written specifically for this project) that has over 52 packages.

To summarize, pH7CMS gives you the perfect ingredients to create the best online dating service or social networking website on the World Wide Web!

🏗 Nginx Configuration

In order to get pH7CMS working on nginx server, you need to add some custom nginx configuration.

Create /etc/nginx/ph7cms.conf and add the following:

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    index index.php;

Please note that the above code is the strict minimum and obviously you can add more rules by comparing with the main Apache .htaccess file.

Finally, in your nginx server configuration, you will have to include ph7cms.conf file to complete the configuration like below:

In file, e.g., /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/yoursite.conf for Ubuntu and other OS based on Debian or /etc/nginx/conf.d/yoursite.conf for CentOS and other OS based on Red Hat.

server {
    # Port number. In most cases, 80 for HTTP and 443 for HTTPS
    listen 80;

    root /var/www/ph7cms_public_root;
    index index.php; #you can use index.ph7; for hidding the *.php ...
    client_max_body_size 50M;

    error_log /var/log/nginx/yoursite.error.log;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/yoursite.access.log;

    # Include ph7cms.conf. You can also directly add the "location" rule instead of including the conf file
    include /etc/nginx/ph7cms.conf;

For more information, please refer to the nginx documentation.
