Need a way to quickly get a LAMP stack up and running that’s automatically tuned, tweaked and optimized for you? Ever wished there was a way to deploy a WordPress stack that worked right out of the box? How about an easy way to deploy a cluster of identically configured Linodes?
StackScripts™ provide a flexible way to customize our distribution templates. They’re very easy to use — find a StackScript, answer its questions, and click deploy. When the deployment is first booted, the script is executed and does its thing. You can even watch its progress by viewing the console.
StackScripts can be private to your account, shared to the Linode community, or chosen from our library of open source StackScripts. The Linode Manager Users and Grants permission system enables you to restrict who can use or edit your private StackScripts. The Linode API can even handle StackScripts, so management can be rolled into your existing workflow.
You can browse the repository of public StackScripts from the Linode Manager. You’ll also notice a new link off the deploy page for deploying from a StackScript, and on the main Linodes tab a link to the StackScript editor.
