Hi

I couldn't install it.

whay exactly happens ? Are there some error messages, they are generaly usefull for solving your problems.

Did you read that thread: https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/13821/about-installation-on-cpanel-easyapache-4-with-php7

and that one: https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/12477/unable-to-install-phalcon-30-on-centos-7-php-7

My personnal two cent: if you do not plan to host many websites with many different (sub)domain names, many users/domain name administrators, and many other services (mail, ftp, name server,and so on), where in that case cPanel can be usefull, start with a basic installation of any distribution you are used to (latest ubuntu 16.04 is a good choice because it is shipped with php7) and install just the package you need and configure service by hand: use the KISS approach

Hi, I saw those posts but i couldn't install it. I am Software developer, I am not System engineer and i dont never use linux.

I'm waiting for your help Thank you.

Hi,

server managment or in a wider point of view, infrastructure management, is a full time job as app developer is an another one. If you do not have the skills to manage a server by your own, maybe a "ready to use" solution would be better. In that case, search the forum with "phalcon hosting", I know that they are some providers that offers shared hosting with phalcon already in place.

Otherwise (<=> you want your own self managed server), you may start with a cloud vps instance like digitalocean.com (0,007 $/h for 512Mb RAM and 20 Go ssd storage) or ovh.com (these are the two services I know, I personnaly use ovh) offers to make your test and learn a bit more about server management and phalcon installation on a linux box

If your needs are only: hosting just one website accessible under one fqdn (with maybe a database server ) forget cpanel and learn how to configure apache (or nginx) virtual host. It is not so hard and they are a lot of good tutorials over the web for explaining how to do that

I saw those posts but i couldn't install it

we know that, but usually when problems are happening, they aren't spokeless: what kind of error messages do you get ? Can't you compile phalcon ? You can compile it, but phalcon php extension isn't loaded ? You have to give us more informations if you want more precise help from the community.

Edit: just see that post: https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/14811/phalcon-compose

and with: https://www.digitalocean.com/products/one-click-apps/docker/

you will be ready to go (but maybe you will not learn what's happening under the hood)

feel free to ask more questions, but with usefull informtions okay ;-)
