MariaDB [(none)]> exit;

Step 3: Install & Configure Web Server & PHP

As mentioned in the requirements, we need a web server for serving the web pages. So, it’s up to you to use Apache or Nginx but I’ll recommend you to use Nginx Web Server for Mautic Markeeting Software. Also, install the PHP and the required dependencies.

sudo apt install nginx -y
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y php7.3
sudo apt install php7.3-{cli,fpm,json,common,mysql,zip,gd,mbstring,curl,xml,bcmath,imap,intl} php-pear

Verify the status of PHP-fpm services.

sabi@Ubuntu20:~$ sudo systemctl status php7.3-fpm

lines 1-16/16 (END)

Step 4: Configure PHP with Mautic Recommended Settings

Edit the php.ini file under /etc/php/7.3/fpm/ directory and setup the timezone.

sudo nano /etc/php/7.3/fpm/php.ini

And then set the Memory limit to 512M and save the file.

Now, make some changes to the Nginx to configure it with Mautic. Switch to the /etc/nginx/sites-enaled/ directory and backup the default file. After backup, create a new file.

cd /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
sudo mv default /tmp
sudo vim /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/mautic.conf

Then paste the below content in the newly created file.

server {
listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
server_name example.com;
root /var/www/html/mautic;
index index.html index.htm index.php;

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

location ~ .php$ {
fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_read_timeout 240;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+.php)(/.+)$;
rewrite ^themes/./(layouts|pages|partials)/..htm /index.php break;
rewrite ^bootstrap/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^config/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^vendor/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^storage/cms/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^storage/logs/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^storage/framework/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^storage/temp/protected/.* /index.php break;
rewrite ^storage/app/uploads/protected/.* /index.php break;

Swith to the root directory where Webserver will check for the Mautic files & clone the mautic files. You can change the directory according to your needs.

cd /var/www/html/
sudo git clone https://github.com/mautic/mautic.git

After cloning the files, install the composer. To install it, hit the below command in your terminal.

cd ~
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer -o composer-setup.php
sudo php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer --version=1.0.0-alpha8

Verify the installation by typing

sabi@Ubuntu20:~$ composer -V
Composer version 1.0.0-alpha8 2014-01-06 18:39:59

Once installtion is successful, switch to root directory & run the composer install.

cd /var/www/html/mautic
sudo composer install

It’ll take some time to complete the process.

And then change the Mautic’s files permissions to Nginx.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/mautic/
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/mautic/

Restart php-fpm services.

sudo systemctl restart nginx php7.3-fpm

Step 6: Add Cron Jobs for Mautic

As Mautic needs some cron jobs for handling the maintenance process and updating the compaigns and actions, so do it with the help of below cron job. You can also customize it according to your own needs.

sudo crontab -e
*/10 * * * 1 php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console mautic:segments:update >> /var/log/cronmautic.log 2>&1
*/20 * * * 3 php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console mautic:campaigns:update >> /var/log/cronmautic.log 2>&1
*/30 * * * 5 php /var/www/html/mautic/app/console mautic:campaigns:trigger >> /var/log/cronmautic.log 2>&1

You can set your own time to run cron jobs. Here I’ll list the basic info.

.---------------- minute (0 - 59)
| .------------- hour (0 - 23)
| | .---------- day of month (1 - 31)
| | | .------- month (1 - 12) OR jan,feb,mar,apr …
