    echo -e "" | sudo tee -a  /etc/php/7.4/cli/php.ini
  3. Configure PHP:

    echo -e "memory_limit = 2048M \nmax_input_time = 600 \nmax_execution_time = 600 \nrealpath_cache_size=4096K \nrealpath_cache_ttl=600 \nopcache.enable=1 \nopcache.enable_cli=0 \nopcache.memory_consumption=512 \nopcache.interned_strings_buffer=32 \nopcache.max_accelerated_files=32531 \nopcache.save_comments=1" | sudo tee -a  /etc/php/7.4/fpm/php.ini
    echo -e "memory_limit = 2048M" | sudo tee -a  /etc/php/7.4/cli/php.ini
  4. Install Node.js 14:

    sudo mv composer.phar /usr/bin/composer
  7. Install Symfony Server and enable TLS:
