Wordpress Creator for Linux 🚀

This little bash file will set up a new wordpress installation in your public_html folder in your home directory, a new virtual host and a new database (with default user or with a dedicated user for the project)

What do you need to use it

  • You need to be under a Linux system (this script was developed and tested under Manjaro)
  • You need to have Apache, mySQL and PHP installed (LAMP)

If you need to install Apache, mySQL and PHP you can refer to this guide.

Usage ✌️

  1. Download the script and put it where you want (e.g. inside the public_html)
  2. Make it executable
  3. Run it with sudo ./

❗️sudo is mandatory to launch the script, otherwise it will not have the right privileges to work properly❗️

It will create the new Wordpress project in 6 steps:

  1. Set the name for the project (I usually use projectname.local)
  2. Create the files and download the last version of Wordpress
  3. Set the virtual hosts
  4. Create the database
    • before it will ask you if you want to use the root user or to create a new user for the database
  5. It saves all the information in the file access_info.txt inside the project folder

TIP You can create a desktop launcher to start the script just with a double click. To do that, create a file and name it something like wp_creator.desktopand inside paste this code:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=WP Creator
Comment=Build a new wordpress project
Exec=sudo xfce4-terminal -H -x pat/to/your/script

(Remember to modify the file path).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
