How to build your personal website? Use WordPress and VPS step by step (2)

  • LAMP environment to build

Before you build WordPress in your VPS, you need to build LAMP first.

LAMP is an archetypal model of web service stacks, named as an acronym of the names of its original four open-source components: the Linux operating system, the Apache HTTP Server, the MySQL relational database management system (RDBMS), and the PHP programming language.

I recommend you to use LNMP software bundle

# screen -S lnmp

Press Enter then

# wget -c && tar zxf lnmp1.3-full.tar.gz && cd lnmp1.3-full && ./ lamp


First, you need to set up a ROOT passcode for your database, it is very important. Remember this password.

Next, you need choose some number to install, I recommand you to choose Defaut.

When green words “Press any key to install…or Press Ctrl+c to cancel” shown, press Enter to continue. Wait about 30 minutes, you will see:

Congratulations! LAMP exist in your VPS!Optimize VPS Before install WordPress
