DigitalOcean LEMP Stack Installation Scripts

Posted May 6, 2016 5.7k views

Need help about the scripts that build the DigitalOcean LEMP Stack when using the One-click Apps in the control panel.

Is the tutorial: How To Install LEMP stack in Ubuntu 16.04 is what on the scripts or there are additional code that is included?

Please help me about this. I’m planning to buy my VPS here.

The major difference between the DigitalOcean LEMP stack app and the setup in that tutorial is that the One-Click is based on Ubuntu 14.04 and the tutorial is using Ubuntu 16.04. If you are on 14.04, check out this tutorial:

The One-Click simply aims to help get you up and running without needing to do repetitive tasks. So it installs those components as described in the article and generates a random password for the MySql root user. It also provides a few extra packages that are very commonly used with the LEMP stack. To install them run:

Ubuntu 14.04
  • sudo apt-get install php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-curl


Ubuntu 16.04
  • sudo apt-get install php-mcrypt php-gd php-curl

A LEMP stack (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, and PHP) is a powerful set of software that can be configured to serve dynamic sites and web apps from your server. In this guide, we will discuss how to install a LEMP stack on an Ubuntu 14.04 server.

just want to tell that some guys are looking for LEMP stack because they don’t know the name of free script like Slickstack
