Installing Lighttpd with PHP 7 (PHP-FPM) and MySQL 5.7 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an Ubuntu 16.04 server with PHP 7 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL 5.7. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd’s spawn-fcgi.
