Single Click LEMP Install - what is setup by default ?

Ansible LEMP Ubuntu 16.04

I was wondering if there is any documentation around what is included in the single click LEMP install?

Do the single click apps follow the guides that are on here and so basically once you setup its the same as following the various guides do they just have the components but you then need to do the configuration?

Has anyone taken the various guides here and turned into a script for something like ansible?

Seems like a lot of effort each time to spin up a box, and was trying to find a shortcut :)

I am just doing simple Wordpress sites on LEMP.

One-click apps ship with a fairly default configuration to ensure compatibility with tutorials written for the distribution shipped packages.

The LEMP package for the most part follows the same steps included in the tutorials we provide. On first boot a MySQL user is created with a random password that is stored in a text file in your home directory and PHP-FPM is configured in Nginx but otherwise the result is pretty much what you would get by just installing the packages.

Our internal one-click build scripts are not currently public but we do have some cloud-init user-data scripts that reproduce this stack that you can review here.

Hi there
I just deployed a oneclick lemp droplet.
The most important questions I have at the moment are:

  1. Does any of the installed software, including OS and all of the elements of the stack get autoupdated by default.
  2. How secure is the image? Does a firewall get installed? How about Fail2ban?

Thank you
