Having a working install of Ubuntu 13.04, proceed with the below;
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install nginx $ sudo /etc/init.d/nginx start
Nginx should be working now. Try access the server from a browser.
PHP-FPM is a daemon process (with the init script
runs a FastCGI server on the socket
$ sudo apt-get install php5-fpm
Now create the following PHP file in the document root /usr/share/nginx/www
$ vim /usr/share/nginx/www/info.php
// Enclosed in PHP tags of course phpinfo();
