Install wpcontroller on DigitalOcean¶
1. Create a wpcontroller Droplet on Digital Ocean¶
Create a wpcontroller Droplet using the wpcontroller app in the DigitalOcean marketplace.
It is recommended that you deploy a server with 1 GiB memory and at least 1 CPU core for each WordPress web site you will run.
See: server resource requirements
2. Open required ports on your Digital Ocean firewall¶
Using Digital Ocean's Networking Firewall feature, open the required ports:
|Inbound||22||TCP||SFTP / SSH|
Note: restricting access on port 22 to necessary IP addresses is a good security practice.
3. Register your instance¶
Once your server is running, visit install.wpcontroller.com and enter the public IP address of your server. It may take 1-3 minutes to become available.
Check the wpcontroller log¶
sudo less /var/log/wpcontroller.log
Check the wpcontroller systemd journal¶
sudo journalctl --unit wpcontroller
Check the wpcontroller installer systemd journal¶
sudo journalctl --unit run-wpcontroller-installer
