How to deploy WordPress in Digital Ocean:

This tutorial will show you how to deploy WordPress on Digital Ocean by using Bunnyshell, the best tool to manage your technology stack on multiple cloud service providers. Because Bunnyshell has the same interface for all providers, deploying WordPress on Digital Ocean is similar to deploying it on AWS or Azure. Let’s see what you have to do.  

Step 1:  After you logged into your Bunnyshell account, you should go to the Dashboard. On the left side of the page, you will see the main menu where you have your managing panel. There you can find the environments, the resources, and the one-click apps.

Step 5: Give the app a name and choose the location of the server, a virtual network, and the server size.


Step 6: Once you added all the data required, you can look at the bottom of the page.You will need to write the root password for MySQL. Then you will find the package requirements for WordPress.


Step 7: Click on MySQL to see the data required for the app. If you do not add a password, one will be provided by Bunnyshell.


Step 8:

8.1. Add a server name unless you want to use application DNS. Select the options you desire and choose what to override.


8.2. Once you completed everything, you can move to the next sections and write a server alias. Choose a redirect status for the application and a redirect destination. In the end, select the modules.


Step 9: For the final step, just check to see if all the info is correct and then proceed to press

Now you can click on “view logs” to see, real-time, how the server is preparing the app.
