Question

Can I still get the WordPress One-Click Ubuntu 16.04 with MySQL 5.7?

I’m having problems using the WordPress one-click droplet with Ubuntu 18.04 with MySQL 8.0.29, so I want to create another droplet using the previous Ubuntu 16.04 and mysql 5.7. This is what I was using in the past and it worked well, where can I find the option to install this version of the droplet.

Hi @mhweb,

Don’t worry about Ubuntu 18.04 as it is better than 16.04, We should always use the new version, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is out, you should go and set up your droplet using.

Can you explain what problem you’re having? You didn’t mention any problem. If you’re worried, Don’t worry, Let me know I’ll help you to set up your droplet with Ubuntu 20.04.

        server_name domain.com;

        location / {
             #try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
             try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
        }

        location ~* \.php$ {
              fastcgi_pass   unix:/var/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock;
              fastcgi_index  index.php;
