The WordPress VM is pre-configured with Virtual Hosts and with the MySQL database already installed. We also installed PHP 7 together with Redis Cache for the best possible performance. The only thing you have to do by yourself is the automated final setup, everything is pre-configured. Please also check the menu above for more information. We hope you enjoy this appliance, and please leave a comment below to tell us what you thought.

[sudo] password for wordpress: wordpress
- Wait for the script to finish
- Go to:
