WordPress Auto Installation Script for CentOS 8 (Minimal)

I wrote this script for myself, to automate some annying tasks to create virtual machines for testing my WordPress sites. I share in case it can be useful to someone. Quick instructions:

  • Install a minimal Centos 8 installation
  • SSH to the server as root (e.g. with Putty)
  • If you want to run with default parametersm just type or copy-and-paste:
    curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/UncleDan/linux-scripts/master/wordpress-centos8.sh|sh ; exit
  • If you wanto to adjust parameters to your needs use:
    curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/UncleDan/linux-scripts/master/wordpress-centos8.sh --output wordpress-centos8.sh
    vi wordpress-centos8.sh
    sh wordpress-centos8.sh
  • Thats’ pretty much all.
