This how-to will show you how to install WordPress using Atlantic.Net’s One-click install. Currently, our WordPress application is installed on a LAMP stack using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
You need a valid Atlantic.Net cloud account. If you do not have an account, sign up for Cloud Hosting in less than 30 seconds.
Install WordPress using Atlantic.Net’s One-Click Install
First, we need to log into https://cloud.atlantic.net and select Add Server.
On the add a server page, the first step is to name your cloud server.
We now need to select the location for which you want your server housed at. All applications are available at every location.
Next select Applications to see all the one-click applications that are available.
Select the WordPress application.
Select the size of the server you would like.
Optionally you can add your SSH key and/or add backups.
Click Create Server, and you should see that your server is building.
Once it is built, you should get a screen similar to the one below. It has relevant information like the IP address of your server and login credentials. You will also get an email with the same information.
To get to the WordPress web installation, you need the verification link. The verification link is in the email sent to you, or on the Message of the Day screen when you first SSH into your server. The message of the Day also has your database passwords. Below is what the message of the day looks like when you login.
Note: The reason we use verification links rather than just going to the IP address, is the potential that someone could hijack your WordPress installation.
Copy the verification link and put it into your browser. You should get a screen similar to the one below where you can select your language of choice.
Now you can continue with the WordPress web installation to which will ask for your site title, username, password, and email, which is all customizable for what you would like.
