Debian Jessie 8: install and configure the latest version of Nginx and PHP 7 FPM

In this article, we will install the latest version of NGINX web server that will be associated with the new PHP7 FPM.

In the past, I was a Apache httpd addict and I have used it a lot every time that I'm looking for a web server.
But since I tried Nginx, I adopted it...Nginx is really fast, powerful and consumes fewer resources than Apache.

PHP 7.0 is a worthy successor to PHP5 (yes I know, PHP 6 was swept under the carpet in the middle).

This basic installation will be used later in the next articles to add the support for HTTPS and HTTP/2 protocols.
