Landing CMS is a free and open-source CMS tool used for managing landing pages. Instead of using a database, it stores all data in a plain text file. The installation process is simple and straightforward. You will only need to install a web server and PHP to start with Landing CMS.

This post will show you how to install Landing CMS on Oracle Linux 8.

Step 1 – Install Apache and PHP

First, install the Apache web server by running the following command:

dnf install httpd -y

Next, enable the PHP 7.4 module with the following command:

dnf module enable php:7.4 -y

Next, install PHP with other required extensions using the following command:

dnf install -y php php-zip php-intl php-mysqlnd php-dom php-simplexml php-xml php-xmlreader php-curl php-exif php-ftp php-gd php-iconv php-json php-mbstring php-posix php-sockets php-tokenizer php-fpm -y

Once all the packages are installed, verify the PHP version using the following command:

php-fpm -v

You should see the following output:

PHP 7.4.19 (cli) (built: May  4 2021 11:06:37) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.4.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies

Next, start and enable the Apache and PHP-FPM services with the following command:

systemctl start httpd php-fpm
systemctl enable httpd php-fpm

Step 2 – Download Landing CMS

First, navigate to the Apache web root directory and download the latest version of Landing CMS with the following command:

cd /var/www/html/

Once the download is complete, unzip the downloaded file with the following command:


Next, rename the extracted directory:

mv Landing-CMS-master landing

Next, set proper permissions and ownership to the landing CMS directory:

chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/landing/
chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/landing/

Step 3 – Configure Apache for Landing CMS

Next, create an Apache virtual host configuration file for Landing CMS with the following command:

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/landing.conf

Add the following configurations:

<VirtualHost *:80>

DocumentRoot /var/www/html/landing

<Directory /var/www/html/landing/>
    Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All

ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/landing-error.log
CustomLog /var/log/httpd/landing-access.log combined


Save and close the file, then restart the Apache service to apply the changes:

systemctl restart httpd

You can also check the Apache status using the following command:

systemctl status httpd

You should see the following output:
