Wordpress Nginx Install

Your Wordpress 1 click install is awesome. However, it would be REALLY great if there was a nginx option as well (as the current one uses apache).

    I think for most one click app installs, it would be great to add a few parameters, like which server to set it up with (Apache or NGINX), and if it should already have phpmyadmin running, swap, etc... I know DO is not primarily intended for just "webmasters", but most people probably would love cutting down some of the dirty work

    The problem with easy engine is that it will become a pay for use model. If you set things up to use it now, then the model changes to something you cannot afford, you have to start all over with your setup model.

    It may be best to set up something free that you control using the tools that Digital Ocean uses to set up their servers.

    @Pablo: I hope you checked EasyEngine ( ).

    We have put option to configure WordPress with 3 caching option: Fastcgi Cache, W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache). Check out EasyEngine docs ( ) for more.

    EasyEngine development is going strong, and we will soon push new release. You can track development at GitHub ( ).

    It would kick even more @$$ if the WordPress-Nginx 1-click install was pre-configured with caching best practices.

    I tried EasyEngine, though it has shell script commands but its more like one click install.

    Hi Kyle,

    I am considering you are on Ubuntu. If yes, check out EasyEngine ( ). It is made for WordPress-nginx sites. You can install Nginx, PHP, MySQL, Postfix, phpMyAdmin and their dependencies in one go!
