Description

This is a guide for installing Grocy with Nginx on Arch Linux.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure the system is up to date:
    sudo pacman -Syu
    
  • Install a few dependencies:
    sudo pacman -S git nginx
    

Install PHP

  • Install php and additional required packages:
    sudo pacman -S php php-fpm php-sqlite php-gd php-intl composer yarn
    
  • Edit the php config:
    sudo nano /etc/php/php.ini
    
    • And enable the following extensions:
      extension=gd
      extension=intl
      extension=sqlite3
      extension=pdo_sqlite
      extension=iconv
      
  • Start and enable php-fpm at boot:
    sudo systemctl enable php-fpm
    sudo systemctl start php-fpm
    

Install Grocy

  • Download grocy and switch to grocy user:
    sudo mkdir -p /var/www && cd /var/www
    sudo git clone -b release https://github.com/grocy/grocy.git
    chown -R http /var/www/grocy
    sudo su - grocy
    
  • Install grocy:
    cd /var/www/grocy
    composer install --no-interaction --no-dev --optimize-autoloader
    composer clear-cache
    yarn install --modules-folder public/node_modules --production
    yarn cache clean
    
  • Create a new config file:
    cp config-dist.php data/config.php
    
  • Exit the grocy user:
    exit
    

Install Nginx

  • Start and enable nginx at boot:
    systemctl enable nginx
    systemctl start nginx
    
  • Create a configuration directory to make managing individual server blocks easier
    mkdir /etc/nginx/conf.d
    
  • Edit the main nginx config file:
    sudo nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
    
    • And strip down the config file and add the include statement at the end:
      worker_processes  1;
      error_log  /var/log/nginx-error.log;
      
      events {
          worker_connections  1024;
      }
      
      http {
          include       mime.types;
          default_type  application/octet-stream;
          sendfile        on;
          keepalive_timeout  65;
      
          include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
      }
      
  • Create the grocy config:
    sudo nano /etc/nginx/conf.d/grocy.conf
    
    • And add the following:
      server {
          listen       80;
          server_name  grocy.example.com;
          root         /var/www/grocy/public;
          access_log   /var/log/grocy-access.log;
          error_log    /var/log/grocy-error.log;
      
          location / {
              try_files $uri /index.php;
          }
      
          location ~ \.php$ {
              fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
              fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /var/www/grocy/public$fastcgi_script_name;
              fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
              include fastcgi_params;
          }
      }
      
  • Restart nginx:
    systemctl restart nginx
    
  • Open a web browser and go to grocy.example.com
    • Default username/password is admin/admin.
