I'm not seeing a clear path to a simple email contact form for a static page. I have Ubuntu and Nginx, but not PHP or Wordpress installed.

I have used the PHP scripts before on Godaddy. Trying to do something similar. Am I supposed to install PHP on my linux server? I keep seeing other apps like sendmail, postfix, etc. Although this page in particular is all static, I have been running node app on my droplet, so I’m not sure if that mixes with PHP.
