How to install WordPress in ubuntu server

  1. Install Apache
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
    sudo apt install apache2 -y
  2. Install PHP
sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql -y
MARIA DB Installation

MYSQL
sudo apt install mysql-server -y
sudo mysql_secure_installation

sudo apt install mariadb-server
sudo mysql_secure_installation

if show errors, when you install database. if sucessfully install then flow next section “database create”
solved it by running “$sudo mysql”
which logged me in as root without a password, then I ran
$ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password by ‘mynewpassword’;
$ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password by ‘4Hxla]h!@/8gjEWY’;

Database create
sudo mysql -u root -p
CREATE DATABASE wpdb DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;
CREATE USER ‘wpuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘BNlerp4@38%4o^G7’;

mysql> CREATE DATABASE wpdb;
mysql> CREATE USER ‘wpuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘BNlerp4@38%4o^G7’;
mysql> GRANT ALL ON wpdb.* TO ‘wpuser’@’localhost’;
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> EXIT;


Flow the command for a single website. For multi websites follow the next section command
cd /var/www/html
sudo wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
sudo tar xzf latest.tar.gz
sudo mv wordpress/* .
sudo chown -R www-data: .

cp wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php
