One-Click Install Application: Wordpress

  • Posted December 10, 2013

Hello,

I successfully install LAMP on Ubuntu on new droplet using one-click install. Then I install phpMySQL via SSH. I want to install Wordpress on the same droplet but there’s no one-click install available on that droplet.

If I install via SSH, I have Wordpress installed but on a new droplet (with exact same capacity, etc)

I start confuse with droplet concept (I’m coming from cPanel VPS). Can I have more than 1 droplet with total capacity more than I subscribe? Let’s say I have 40GB disk and I have 3 droplet with 40GB each?

And how to install Wordpress on the same droplet using one-click install? Or it’s better to install via SSH?

Thanks

Thanks

Both should work the same. I personally would go with a LEMP stack.

I forgot to mention that CPVlab needs ionCube

Thanks Pablo, <br> <br>I know Droplet = Virtual Private Server (VPS) or cloud server. I just wondering if it’s physically possible to have more than one droplet but in total the size will be larger than my droplet plan. Can I have 30GB plan and I create 2 or 3 droplets with 30GB each? <br> <br>OK, I’ll reduce my LAMP droplet half and create a new droplet and install LEMP + WP <br> <br>Beside WP, I plan to install CPVlab script on it as well (prob on folder). Do you have any experience installing CPVlab on droplet? Which one better for CPVlab: LAMP or LEMP? <br> <br>

<b>“Instead destroying my droplet (which I just created with LAMP+WP+Theme+Plugins), can I create a new droplet with the same size?”</b> <br> <br>Yes. <br> <br><b>“Or should I reduce the size of droplet in half for new droplet?”</b> <br> <br>You can. One 512 MB droplet can handle multiple WordPress installations; especially if you employ (i) the article I previously cited; (ii) <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-use-memcache-on-ubuntu-12-04”>How To Install and Use Memcache on Ubuntu 12.04</a>; (iii) <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-alternative-php-cache-apc-on-a-cloud-server-running-ubuntu-12-04”>Alternative PHP Cache (APC)</a>; a CDN; and the <a href=“http://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/”>W3 Total Cache</a> plugin. <br> <br><b>“… I have difficulties to understand droplet concept.”</b> <br> <br>Droplet = Virtual Private Server (VPS) or cloud server

Thanks Pablo, <br> <br>I’ll consider LEMP. <br> <br>Instead destroying my droplet (which I just created with LAMP+WP+Theme+Plugins), can I create a new droplet with the same size? <br> <br>Or should I reduce the size of droplet in half for new droplet? <br> <br>Sorry I ask about droplet here since I have difficulties to understand droplet concept.

If you care about performance, do NOT deploy WordPress w/Apache (that is, do not use the LAMP stack). WordPress.com (the people that invented WordPress) and ALL of the “premium” WordPress-hosting providers, dumped Apache in favor of Nginx years ago. Therefore, use the LEMP stack, instead. <i>See</i> <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-wordpress-nginx-php-and-varnish-on-ubuntu-12-04”>How To Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04</a>.
