Wondering what the best way to deploy Wordpress on my Debian droplet? I’ve installed it manually before, but it was kind of a pain. Wondering if there’s another method available.

Hi @netrek,

I’ll recommend using the DigitalOcean Marketplace and choose the one-click WordPress Droplet:

Of course thise would be, you’ll need to create a new droplet. If you want to install WordPress on your existing droplet, you’ll need to do it manually. This would mean you’ll first need to downloda yor WordPress droplet, create a configuration file depending on your WebSerive - Nginx or Apache, and manually create a database in your MySQL instance.

If you are uncofortable with all of this, I’ll recommend getting the one click product for WordPress. All of this would be installed automatically!
