OpenLiteSpeed WordPress Not Launching Installer

So, if I create an OpenLiteSpeed WordPress instance and associate an SSH key, I’d expect to login via Putty using my SSH key, enter the associated private key and immediately be prompted to enter my domain > Configure Let’s Encrypt > etc.

Instead, on a brand new instance with 0 configuration, I’m not asked to configure the WordPress instance whatsoever.

What am I missing here? Is there a way to manually kick off the initial installer?

LiteSpeed’s Images have all been updated and published on DigitalOcean’s Marketplace. The updates include the latest version and a patch for the Intel CPU MDS vulnerability issue. If you previously encountered a WordPress 404 issue, please launch and try again. Thank you.

Hi Arthur,

Correct. Even though you killed the hanging update process, the rest of the functions may not be able to continue to finish the settings. Per our discussion on the community, please use a fixed version instead.

Best, Eric

Hello! I just fixed this issue by forcing a reconfigure on dpkg. Thanks to @eleu, I killed the hang update processing

ps aux | grep [a]pt

kill -9 [pids]

apt-get update

dpkg --configure -a

exit (only if needed)

It fix the 404 issue with OpenLiteSpeed, but wordpress can’t connect to Database again
