Installing WordPress on Servebolt

We are currently offering three different ways to install WordPress on your Servebolt site. If you just want us to do it for you, say hi in the chat and ask for it – and our Support Team will do it for you in a matter of minutes. The two other options are:

With WP-CLI

The easiest method for installing WordPress is by connecting with SSH. We have pre-installed WP-CLI, the command line tool for WordPress on all Bolts.

To install WordPress using the command wp (WP-CLI) you simply log on with SSH.

ssh [email protected]

Navigate to the public folder in your home directory (cd ~/public ) and then run the wp core download command:

cd ~/public

wp core download

Then you have downloaded all the necessary WordPress files to you public/ folder. The only thing you need to do now is to set up the installation by visiting the internal URL for your site, that you find in the Control Panel of your site in Servebolt.

With FTP/SFTP

You can also download all the files for your WordPress and upload them with a FTP program like FileZilla. First you need to download the necessary files from WordPress.org. Then you need to connect with SFTP, you can use FileZilla for this. Here are an article on connect with FileZilla. And here’s an article on how to use it.

When you’ve connected to the server and downloaded your files, you simply drag them over to your root/public/ folder.
