DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

I have been using your Tutorials to set up my own home Web Server. I am using Adobe Muse to design it. I purchased a product by QooQee (Muse Blog), which allows one to host and manage their own blog website without third party. My question pertains to setting up this environment to Host your own Blog with Muse Blog widget by QooQee. Thank you.

I was not able to find any installation documents for the server component of this widget but it's page on lists it's requirements as:

  • PHP version 5.2.17 or greater
  • Apache Server
  • PDO MySQL / Sqlite drivers installed
  • PostMaxSize set to 4MB or higher
  • cURL

This should all be provided by spinning up our LAMP 1-Click image but this is based on Ubuntu 14.04.

On Ubuntu 16.04 you can use this user data script on the create page when spinning up your new droplet, it will configure the LAMP stack as well.

Doing either of these will leave you with a server configured and ready for the server component. To get your files onto the server you can use an SFTP client like FileZilla. The web root for your newly created web server will be /var/www/html/ and files placed there will be available via the web.

Thank you so much. I'll post when I get this all finished up. Ive got my LAMP Server installed and it looks like I will be using Sqlite as it should be sufficient for a single blog. I have enjoyed learning from your tutorials.
