Please refer to joyent/mibe to create a provisionable image using this repo. Wordpress with FastCGI + Nginx + opcache


A Wordpress MIBE repo that builds a very fast Wordpress dedicated vps environment. Compiled with Nginx 1.7.4, FastCGI Cache Purge and Geoip support. Configured with MySQL Percona and php-fpm using opcache. Will auto-tune my.cnf in relation to zone memory size at the time of provisioning.

All pages are statically cached and purged from the cache when a page/post is changed or updated. Extremely efficient - configured to serve hundreds of concurrent Wordpress requests at blazing speeds with minimal CPU or Database Load.

Unique Passwords are generated for MySQL root user as well as wordpress database. All information is passed into /etc/motd after zone init.

metadata support

Certain metadata passed to the JSON payload file at creation time will dictate how the new wordpress instance is configured. Currently Supported Metadata:

wpsite_url - wordpress site url
wphome_url - wordpress home url
wpadmin_usr - wordpress admin user
wpadmin_psw - wordpress admin password
wpadmin_ema - wordpress admin password

If no metadata is passed then default username and password will be used for wordpress admin user:

  Admin User: wpadmin
  Admin Password: wppass
  Admin Email: admin@site.local

example: Project FiFo Metadata in use result: Custom Machine Provisioned

ssl support

An auto generated self signed certificate is created at zone init and there is a ready to go nginx conf file that just has to be enabled in:


Please note in order for selective cache purge to work with SSL you will need to install a valid SSL Certificate for your site or figure out how to make "curl" ignore SSL validation.
