Can I add an application to an OS deployed droplet?

Posted July 2, 2014 3k views

I tried to deploy a droplet but missed a field. When I went back and corrected my mistake, I didn’t realize the other fields had been defaulted.
This resulted in me deploying a droplet without an application.

Can I now go and add that application (WordPress) on top of my already deployed droplet?

If you have not do anything to that droplet yet, you can simply destroy it then create another with application.

If not you have to install wordpress yourself.

There are plenty tutorial on the internet, here is one from Digitalocean community.
