Honestly, if you just want to test the performance of an additional site I’d recommend spinning up a fresh Droplet and using something like:

2 commands you’ll pretty much have an optimized WordPress site. It makes things a little more user friendly (think SSLs, creating additional sites etc).

I’d second EasyEngine if you want a relatively quick, low to no-hassle way of setting up WordPress. If you’re not familiar with the CLI, you will need to use it for EasyEngine, but the commands are pretty straight-forward and there’s a helpful menu that’ll tell you what commands you need to use to set up the installation the way you want.

The alternative would be manual setup of a LEMP stack. I’d recommend taking a look at the following guide if you’d like to try and set things up on your own:

Additionally, we have a guide that is tailored towards WordPress + LEMP:
