This is the tutorial of howto install playSMS 1.4 on Ubuntu 16.04 with PHP 7.0. I’m using DigitalOcean to write this tutorial. I choose Nginx as the web server and MySQL as the database server.
There are 9 steps that you need to do correctly and in order. It seems complicated and looks like a long tutorial, but its relatively easy to follow and straightforward. Post your question in playSMS user forum should you encountered any problem following this tutorial.
In this tutorial the password is not secure and I’m logged in as
root. If you know what you’re doing then you should know that you can always use any Ubuntu 16.04 server, not just on DigitalOcean. And you can always use your own secure password and use non-root login.
Login to your DigitalOcean account, create a Ubuntu 16.04 x64 droplet. In about 2 minutes you’ll have a working Ubuntu 16.04 server. Use SSH to access your server.
If you haven’t got the account, register and I think you’ll get a chance to create a free droplet.
