Has Anyone Used Easy Engine on Ubuntu 14.04 and had a successful install of wordpress?

Hi guys, I was curious to know if anyone using wordpress has ran easy engine to put wordpress on ubuntu 14.04.

The reason I tried it, was all of my install methods failed (including this but not as badly s the others!).

I am not giving up, and was wondering if anyone had any advice on finishing the process. I know that nginx is properly configured, and mysql, php, memcache, hhvm, and that my droplet is functional, but adding wordpress seems to put me in a jam.

Any input would be great.

FYI, I have attempted compiling by spinning up a fresh ubuntu 14.04, 12.04 32 bit and 64 bit droplet, centos 6 and 7, and every imaginable linux distro available. I love the flexibility here, but I can’t seem to nail it down.

At first I though maybe it was my virtual hosts config, as ubuntu, centos, and all linux distros use /html instead of the usual www/ so I used the mkdir command to manually create a directory structure that matches the days of old.

I also tried using the mkdir directive to add public_html to the relevant directories, I created vhosts for each one of these directories each time on each os and attempted the install of wordpress into the pertinent directories. each time i destroyed the droplet, and rebuilt the stack.

Currently i have ubuntu 14.04, lemp, php my admin (which works on my domain so I know that the droplet is functioning with nginx, and that nginx is serving the domain and configured (otherwise the “welcome to nginx” screen would simply pop up.

I’ve successfully compiled a lemp stack with varnish and wordpress before from source on ubuntu 14.04, with memcache phpfpm, hhvm, memcache, had a kvm that pardon my french, fuckin screamed with wordpress. finally i gave up, and tried easy engine and this is what I installed:


I also installed ranger so I could easily look at the directory structure of the current stack, and all seems to be in order.

Here are the results:

Setting up NGINX configuration [Done] Setting up webroot [Done] Downloading Wordpress [Done] Setting up database [Done] Installing plugin nginx-helper, please wait… Reload : nginx [OK] WordPress admin user : james WordPress admin user password : ************* obviously not sharing this. Successfully created site

when I go to my domain, I am immediately sent to php my admin…. any thoughts?
