I heard about EasyEngine a while back and since found out about it my hands were itching to try it out and see how is doing.
For the ones that don’t know a lot about EasyEngine what I can tell is that is a platform that is helping in hosting WordPress fast in Docker with SSL and cache. More you can find out on the EasyEngine site.
EasyEngine is used to host about 170.000 live sites at the article write time and is installing everything that you need to have your WordPress site up and running ( well without email or DNS management)
I am using
Updated and upgrade and then reboot the VPS:
apt update apt upgrade reboot

After you install EasyEngine you just need to point your domain to the DNS administration provider by changing the nameservers. I am using NameCheap to get my domains as is easy and cheaper. In the video, you will see how you can change your nameservers to
Now you have
ee site create www.ocassionlooks.com --wp --cache [email protected] --letsencrypt
Do you need help with your projects?
Add Multiple Domain to Easyengine
Easyengine let’s you add up to 25 domains one one server, so in case you need to add a new domain you just run the above command with the new domain you want to add. First in order to work you need to point the new domain to the server just as for the first domain.
In the video you will see how I added a subdomain with SSL and what is happening behind the scene in Easyengine.
ee site create www.newdomain.com --wp --cache [email protected] --letsencrypt
