I noticed that DO recently added a Wordpress one-click on ubuntu 16.04, and that they brought back the option to install on the smallest droplet. I have installed and configured one somewhat, and it seems much improved from the previous one. But the setup is different in several ways from the previous one on Ubuntu 14 and I have some questions:
Is there some optimal droplet size this is tuned to? If I started with (or upgraded to) a much larger (or smaller) droplet, would the settings still be appropriate?
This droplet has fail2ban (and WPf2b) installed and configured, as well as ufw firewall. From time to time I use IPtables to ban an IP, but I am not at all sure with this setup how to save and reload these rules without messing up fail2ban. Any suggestions? Or is there some GUI for managing this?
