Does the one click Wordpress install set up swap space?

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

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 )

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