Web Hosting basic Droplet?

Posted October 29, 2014 11.4k 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.

This article will take you from a fresh, new server to an online, working site. It will combine the relevant articles into a cohesive step by step guide to set up your personal site on an Ubuntu server.

along with FTP / PHPMyAdmin, I dont know…


look at this :

Basically, LAMP in 1 line :

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

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


I will recommend you to check out existing tutorial on how to configure your LAMP stack on Ubuntu 20.04:

You can then go ahead and complete the installation of phpMyAdmin by following our tutorial here:

As for the FTP you can use sftp in order to access your droplet. The details you need to use are:

Host: sftp://Your_IP
User: root (or your username)
Password: Your password

Hope that this helps!

A “LAMP” stack is a group of open-source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the Apache web server. The site data is stored in a MySQL database, and dynamic content is processed by PHP. In this guide, we will install a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
