Hello, @faizanmalik

You can follow up our existing tutorial on how to install WordPress on Ubuntu 20.04 droplet.

There is no need to install the additional PHP extensions as they’re already installed, same goes for enabling the rewrite module. You can follow the rest of the steps and let me know if everything is working as expected.

Hope that this helps!
