Installing Wordpress with Epinio

Create a directory for your application:

mkdir wordpress
cd wordpress

Get the code:

https://wordpress.org/download/#download-install

wget https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
tar xvf latest.tar.gz
mv wordpress htdocs
rm -rf latest.tar.gz

Create a buildpack.yml for your application

cat << EOF > buildpack.yml
---
php:
version: 8.0.x
script: index.php
webserver: nginx
webdirectory: htdocs
EOF

Enable needed php extensions

The PHP buildpack supports additional ini files for PHP through the PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR mechanism.

We need zlib and mysqli extensions enabled:

mkdir .php.ini.d
cat << EOF > .php.ini.d/extensions.ini
extension=zlib
extension=mysqli
EOF

Deploy

epinio push --name wordpress

Additional steps

Wordpress needs a database to work. After visiting the route of your deployed application you will have to set the connection details to the database.

You can use the Service feature to deploy your database with Epinio. Of course, deploying a database manually is still possible.
