Web Hosting basic Droplet?

October 29, 2014 2.6k views


Is there a generic web hosting Droplet with a basic LAMP installation along with FTP and PHPMyAdmin?

That would speed up things… i'm trying to set up a server to host some websites and i've been here all day and still haven't got it…

  • You may want to try free control panels..

    Like Sentora or zPanel..

    Deploy a fresh droplet then install a free control panel of your choice.. That panel would come with everything you need for hosting, like FTP, phpmyadmin, apache, email and all :)

    Search, there are many different panel options, so you can chose the one you like..

Hello helderluis,
You can get all that on Digital Ocean one step at a time.
Step one: Create a droplet with LAMP option.

Step two: Install phpMyAdmin afterwards.

along with FTP / PHPMyAdmin, I dont know...


look at this : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP

Basically, LAMP in 1 line :

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

Whatever you do, do not install zpanel, unless you want your server rooted
