Also, MySQL or MariaDB is better now for WordPress.

It does not matter really, SlickStack uses MySQL by default and performance is the same as MariaDB.

SlickStack also can support remote database server so you can use DigitalOcean managed MySQL or MariaDB server instead if you prefer to keep the database separate.

Hello, @mahmoud213

Looking at the installation process that is described here: https://slickstack.io/install

Everything seems pretty straight forward and simple. You just need to access your droplet/server via ssh and then download and execute the script.

Also if you’re interested in WordPress hosting you should definitely check our marketplace 1 click install for WordPress as well:

As for your other question, I haven’t notice any significant difference in terms of speed when using both MySQL and MariaDB, but I’ll recommend to stick with MariaDB as it’s newer and also a lot of WordPress experts and enthusiasts prefer to use it.
