Marketplace install of WordPress

Posted November 15, 2020 197 views

Is there a way to auto-install WordPress from DO Marketplace after spinning up a Droplet? When I try to add WP from the marketplace after the fact it sends me into the path of purchasing and creating a new droplet?

Hi there @asocialcontract,

You can create new Droplets with the available images from the Marketplace.

In case you want to install specific software on an existing Droplet like WordPress in your case, you could follow this step by step tutorial here:

Hope that this helps!

WordPress is the most popular CMS (content management system) on the internet. It allows you to easily set up flexible blogs and websites on top of a MySQL backend with PHP processing. In this guide, we'll focus on getting a WordPress instance set up on a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.
