Nginx 1.10

Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll pass it along to our writers. To the best of my knowledge, on the basic setup, not too much has changed. For most ubuntu packages you can go from php5 to php7 by changing “5” in any package names to “7.0”.

If you’re at all interested, we pay writers who are interested in updating tutorials or writing their own.

Still nobody wrote it? FInding it impossible to get things running well on 16.04 using this ubuntu 14 tutorial

When your site begins to get more visitors, you may have to think about how to handle the additional traffic. One easy way of doing this is to separate your database operations from your web server so that each can handle its own load. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to do this for a WordPress site built on Nginx by configuring a remote MySQL database.
