I need to set up a few WordPress installs and I’m wondering if the “One Click” option includes swap space in the install?

Further, do any of the other one click installs set up swap?

Just follow this to add some swap ( This is what I do on most servers )

free -m
sudo fallocate -l 2G /swapfile
ls -lh /swapfile
sudo chmod 600 /swapfile
ls -lh /swapfile
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile
swapon -s
sudo vim /etc/fstab

! Add this to fstab:
/swapfile swap swap sw 0 0

cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness

sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=10
sudo vim /etc/sysctl.conf

! Add below to sysctl.conf:
vm.swappiness = 10

REBOOT and Verify ( shutdown -r now , free -m )
