Someone please help me to install Wordpress via Virtualmin

Posted August 3, 2016 3.8k views


My VPS is located on one of DigitalOcean’s servers. I installed Virtualmin and it’s fully functioning (although I cannot figure out how to access FTP). I created a virtual server for one of my domains (and yes the domains are redirected correctly and so on). I’ve been trying to install WORDPRESS for DAYS using all kinds of commands and tips that I’ve found on the internet or on DigitalOcean’s support.
When I go directly to my domain address, it just says** This site can’t be reached.**
What am I doing wrong? I’ve started from 0 three times now. I am out of ideas.

Is there an expert out there who would maybe take a look at my problem for an extra fee?

If you want I can take a lot at your server for free, also if I were you and wanted to deploy wordpress I would use serverpilot or 1 click app or do it manually. VirtualMin is meant for VPS resellers (companies/persons that sell servers), not for 1 server and managing it.

  • I tried 1 click app at first but with that system I couldn’t figure out a way to get access to FTP, MySQL and so on, it seemed to be too basic for my needs.
    But I really didn’t know that was the case with Virtualmin! I’ll keep that in mind for the future. I would be beyond grateful if you could take a look, what kind of credentials do you need and how can I forward them to you?

Well it would be best if you deleted the droplet, made a new one (running Ubuntu 16.04, empty, no 1 click app), and let me configure it securly (for free), you can find me in the #digitalocean IRC channel on freenode.

Happy to help :-)
