Setting up a WordPress site using EasyEngine 3.7

Creating WordPress sites on a $5/month VPS such as DigitalOcean with EasyEngine is incredibly rapid.

Installing EasyEngine is a single command and then setting up a WordPress site with the following features is another single command.

Features

  • NGINX
  • HTTP2
  • SSL (https) with Let’s Encrypt
  • Caching
  • PHP 7.0
  • MariaDB

Install EasyEngine

wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee && sudo bash ee

Setup the WordPress site

sudo ee site create www.example.com --wpfc --php7 --letsencrypt --user=admin --pass=password --email=email@example.com

The result

I used this to get this current site loading in around half a second which is very pleasing. Let me know if you would like any further detail.
