WordPress on CentOS (Application Install)

September 16, 2014 1.8k views

I see that there is the ability to install CentOS on a droplet, but it seems that via the Applications tab, there is only the ability to have WordPress installed with Ubuntu.

I know I could use CentOS and build by own LAMP and then install WordPress on my own, but is it possible to get an application install of WordPress on CentOS?

Mostly this is out of preference, the servers I currently have sites on that I'm looking to migrate over have been using CentOS for several years now.

  • I wanted CentOS but didn't see any one click with that, so I chose a control panel, which does all the installation and management for me.. There are many to chose from.. I chose zPanel (now sentora)

At the moment, we don't have plans to offer the One-Click applications on CentOS. We're not particularly tied to Ubuntu, and if there was an application that made more sense to offer on CentOS we would. Though we do strive to provide a clean simple experience that doesn't force the user to make unnecessary choices. Ubuntu makes up a large percentage of our install base, so for now it makes sense as our default.

We use UserVoice to track feature requests and gauge user demand. There's an open request there for CentOS one-click applications that hasn't seen many votes yet. You can show your support for the idea by voting for it there.

Thanks for the feedback!

You can deploy a CentOS droplet and install a Control Panel which allows you to install popular scripts like Wordpress, Joomla, Magento on LAMP/LEMP or LLMP

  • Thanks. I knew I could do that or install things myself. Was just wondering if there was a One-Click planned anytime soon, before I went ahead and did the work.

  • We are planning to provide a One-Click install for Wordpress (CentOS) in a few weeks - 1 month.

    If you still looking for that at that time, come visit us.
