How to install WordPress on the VPS

I am new to the VPS world. I have an account with 2 droplets. I installed Sentora in one droplet to use as a control panel. I want to install WordPress in the other droplet. I installed Sentora in the first droplet since I can’t manage to create a subdomain to use for it ( I don’t know if this is the right way to do it. But I am hoping that I can install WordPress in the main domain but I don’t know how to. Is it possible to upload it instead of using the image?
