Desktop File Example in Ubuntu 14.04

To create an icon on your desktop, you need to create a desktop file in the following format.

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=PhpStorm
Comment=Test the terminal running a command inside it
Exec=bash -c 'env JAVA_HOME=${HOME}/jdk /home/watcharin/phpstorm/bin/phpstorm.sh'
Icon=utilities-terminal
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;

Save this file in Directory Desktop as, for example, phpstorm.desktop.

If you have trouble launching the application, change the Exec line to the following to debug.

Exec=gnome-terminal -e "bash -c 'env JAVA_HOME=${HOME}/jdk /home/watcharin/phpstorm/bin/phpstorm.sh;$SHELL'"

Nginx Configuration for CodeIgniter

Suppose the CodeIgniter application is in /opes. Add the following configuration.

location /opes/index.php {
    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;

    fastcgi_pass   unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
    fastcgi_index  index.php;

    include fastcgi_params;
    fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root/opes/index.php;
    fastcgi_param  REQUEST_URI      $request_uri;
    fastcgi_param  QUERY_STRING     $query_string;
    fastcgi_param  REQUEST_METHOD   $request_method;
    fastcgi_param  CONTENT_TYPE     $content_type;
    fastcgi_param  CONTENT_LENGTH   $content_length;
}

* This configuration assumes we do not hide index.php in the URL.
