The Effortless Method to Install WordPress On Unmanaged Ubuntu Server
In case you want to install WordPress on Ubuntu server, these are a few steps to follow. Have in mind that this server has no control panel software, like cPanel and no one-click installer script like Fantastico or Softaculous. You have heard about Tuxlite. It is a free collection of shell scripts for rapid and easy deployment of LNMP (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP) and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQl, PHP) stack on low-end budget server like Ubuntu. With Tuxlite you can setup a working server to host your websites and blogs. Tuxlite also has a feature to allow its users to deploy world’s most popular blogging platform, WordPress.
