One-Click Install Application: Wordpress

December 10, 2013 4.1k views
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

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. See How To Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04.

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator and a useful tool for speeding up a server, especially during a times when there is high traffic to a site. It works by redirecting visitors to static pages whenever possible and only drawing on the server itself if there is a need for an active process. This tutorial covers installing wordpress on a LEMP stack (with nginx instead of apache), and then installing varnish.
Thanks Pablo,

I'll consider LEMP.

Instead destroying my droplet (which I just created with LAMP+WP+Theme+Plugins), can I create a new droplet with the same size?

Or should I reduce the size of droplet in half for new droplet?

Sorry I ask about droplet here since I have difficulties to understand droplet concept.
"Instead destroying my droplet (which I just created with LAMP+WP+Theme+Plugins), can I create a new droplet with the same size?"

Yes.

"Or should I reduce the size of droplet in half for new droplet?"

You can. One 512 MB droplet can handle multiple WordPress installations; especially if you employ (i) the article I previously cited; (ii) How To Install and Use Memcache on Ubuntu 12.04; (iii) Alternative PHP Cache (APC); a CDN; and the W3 Total Cache plugin.

"... I have difficulties to understand droplet concept."

Droplet = Virtual Private Server (VPS) or cloud server
by Etel Sverdlov
Memcache is a system that works to speed up virtual private servers by caching server information. The program allows you to allocate a specific amount of the server ram toward caching recently queried data for a certain amount of time. This tutorial covers Memcache installation and illustrates how to use memcache with a simple php script.
Thanks Pablo,

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?

OK, I'll reduce my LAMP droplet half and create a new droplet and install LEMP + WP

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?

I forgot to mention that CPVlab needs ionCube
Both should work the same. I personally would go with a LEMP stack.
