Web Server Configuration

The web server should be configured to deliver content over HTTPS (via TLS/SSL).

Make sure the server is capable of rendering PHP. On Linux systems most often the installation of PHP enables the php5_module but you should confirm it has been enabled. The configuration of Apache to use the module and parse .php files as PHP is also often done when PHP is installed but you should confirm that your Apache configuration contains lines similar to these:

<IfModule mod_php5.c>
    <FilesMatch "\.ph(p|tml)$">
        SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
    <FilesMatch "\.phps$">
        SetHandler application/x-httpd-php-source

After PHP 5.6, the 5.x numbering has been dropped. Later versions are named (eg) php7_modulemodules/libphp7.somod_php7, etc.

You may wish to restrict the configuration for parsing of .php files to the COmanage Registry directory by embedding the <FilesMatch> element inside of an appropriate <Directory> element. See the Apache httpd documentation.

Configure the directory that will hold the product code (to be installed in the next step) to allow symlinks, overrides, and accept index.php. For Apache, something like the following should work (replacing registry as appropriate with eg match, registry-pe, etc):

<Directory "/path/to/docroot/registry">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    DirectoryIndex index.php
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

Make sure that the mod_rewrite Apache module is installed and enabled.
