What is the best image to use for Wordpress?

Hi There. I set up my first Linode using the one-click app for WordPress, then I use Debian 10 as an image. and I'm not sure if I will face a problem in the future. if so; what is the best image to use for Wordpress. thanks in advance.

IMHO, you're asking the wrong question… Instead of asking "Which distro is best?" you should be asking "Which Linode configuration is best?" The answer to that question is going to depend a lot more on external factors like your anticipated workload and the amount of money you have to spend.

Only you know those things…

P.S. I use Debian 10…on both my Linode and on a 32-bit ARM system I have at home.

If you're using the WordPress One-Click App, you're not going to have an issue with Debian 10. In my experience, it's a very user-friendly distro and one I recommend to those who consider themselves Linux novices.

Not only does the WordPress One-Click install it for you but it lays down the infrastructure for it on your Linode to make the configuration as easy for you as possible. Check out the guide we've put together on it:
