You can start by creating a droplet with the one click application LEMP stack on Ubuntu 14.04 and then replace mysql with mariadb which is actually not that hard to do. if you google 'replace mysql with mariadb' you'll find a bunch of articles on that.

If you need to use Debian instead of Ubuntu you will need to do everything manually. Here is an article on how to do it ARTICLE just make sure that instead of mysql you install mariadb.

To install phpmyadmin follow this ARTICLE

The rest such as FTP and php modules you can type on the search bar at the top of this page or google it.

If you get stuck on something feel free to post any specific problems you are running into and somebody from our community will be happy to assist you.

Good Luck!

LEMP stack is a group of open source software to get a VPS up and running. The acronym includes the Linux (L), MySQL (M), and PHP (P) of the more traditional LAMP stack, but switches out Apache for Nginx (pronounced engine x). This tutorial explains how to install nginx/MySQL/PHP-fpm, as well as all the required repos to download nginx and php-fp. It will also review how to configure php & nginx, as well as how to create a php info page. *Written for Debian 7.

Ok for the secret passpharse error, under your phpmyadmin folder installation find inside that file find this line

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = ; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

You can go here to generate a blowfish passphrase and inserted in the file so it looks like the sample below, don't forget the opening and closing single quotes.

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'qtdRoGmbc9{8IZr323xYcSN]0s)r$9b_JUnb{~Xz'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

For the warning, can you click on found out why and post a screenshot?
