Can't find the info about WordPress installation

  • Posted November 9, 2014


I would like to know, where can I find information about hosting website in Digital Ocean? My domain is “”. I want to install WordPress platform for my web. I can’t find the datebases options, FTP login details, also the “public” folder. Maybe you could help me? I would be very grateful.


Digital Ocean is a VPS hosting. This means that you get a server and configure it however you like.

Digital Ocean does not provide a database, you install it yourself on a server you get from DO. They don’t configure your FTP, you can install it yourself… And so on.

However, there is an image with a pre-configured Wordpress. When creating a new droplet choose the “Applications” tab and select “Wordpress on 14.04”.
