Hello Radhe,

Absolutely, I’d be happy to guide you through hosting your WordPress website on DigitalOcean.

Using DigitalOcean’s Marketplace 1-Click installation Droplet is one of the most straightforward ways to get your WordPress website up and running. Additionally, pairing it with a Managed MySQL cluster will ensure that your database is reliable, backed up, and scalable. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Setting Up the WordPress Droplet:

a. Log in to your DigitalOcean account.

b. Click on the “Create” button in the top right corner and select “Droplets”.

c. Under “Marketplace”, search for “WordPress”. Choose the WordPress 1-Click installation.

d. Choose the Droplet size that suits your needs. For a smaller website, the basic plans are typically sufficient.

e. Continue with the Droplet creation process, selecting your desired datacenter, adding your SSH keys (highly recommended for security), and setting any additional options.

f. Click “Create Droplet”.

2. Setting Up a Managed MySQL Cluster:

a. In the DigitalOcean control panel, click on the “Databases” section in the left sidebar.

b. Click on “Create a Database Cluster”.

c. Choose “MySQL” as the database engine.

d. Follow through with the setup, choosing the size and datacenter that suits your needs. Remember to select the same datacenter as your WordPress Droplet to reduce latency.

e. Once the cluster is set up, you’ll be given credentials and connection details. Keep these safe; you’ll need them for the WordPress setup.

3. Connecting WordPress to Managed MySQL:

a. Once your WordPress Droplet is ready, you’ll need to SSH into it. You can do this using:


b. Navigate to the WordPress configuration file:

nano /var/www/html/wp-config.php

c. In the wp-config.php file, you’ll see the database configuration section. Update the DB_NAME, DB_USER, and DB_PASSWORD with the credentials from your Managed MySQL cluster.

d. After you’ve made the changes, save the file and close the editor.

4. Pointing Your Domain to DigitalOcean:

a. You’ll want to point your domain to the IP address of your WordPress Droplet. Update your domain’s DNS settings (at your domain registrar) to create an A record that points to the IP address of your Droplet.

b. Additionally, set up a CNAME record for the ‘www’ subdomain to point to your main domain.

5. Finishing the WordPress Setup:

a. Once your domain points to your Droplet (it might take a few hours for DNS propagation), open your domain in a web browser.

b. You should see the WordPress installation setup. Follow through, creating your admin user and setting up your site.

And that’s it! Your WordPress site should now be live on DigitalOcean, powered by a robust Managed MySQL database.

Here is also a more detailed step by step tutorial that you can follow:

Best of luck with your website, Radhe!

I’ll try to help with some steps and tutorials which you can follow to have your WordPress website configured.

The tutorial I will post will guide you through setting up a WordPress site using the WordPress 1-Click App.

The WordPress 1 Click App is a Droplet/Server that is ready to use and provides the ability to configure WordPress just following a few simple steps. Check it out and see if that would be clear enough or you would need a bit more guidance.

Hoping to hear from you soon!
