I’ve tried to load Wordpress on Ubuntu 16.04 about 15 times. I’ve tried a variety of instructions to do this but I haven’t gotten it to work. I’ve also reloaded the OS to make sure that I have a clean copy each time I try a new set of instructions.
Apparently there are two ways to load Wordpress.
I make changes to the apache2.conf as per instructions, setup a database for Wordpress with username, password etc. I then copy the Wordpress files into /var/www/html. Instead of getting the Wordpress website, I continue to get the apache website.
Does anyone have a complete, step by step instuctions to install Wordpress on Ubuntu 16.04 so that Wordpress works as a web site?
I’ve installed an older version on Ubuntu 12.01 before which worked so I believe I know the basics.
