This Marketplace App installs the OpenLiteSpeed web server, WordPress, the LiteSpeed caching plugin for Wordpress, as well as other necessary software. Together, these applications provide an accelerated hosting platform for WordPress. OpenLiteSpeed is the open source edition of the LiteSpeed web server. It combines speed, security, scalability, optimization, and simplicity in one friendly open-source package.

Deploying the OpenLiteSpeed WordPress Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Compute Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.

  3. Fill out all required Options for the selected app as well as any desired Advanced Options (which are optional). See the Configuration Options section for details.

  4. Complete the rest of the form as discussed within the Getting Started > Create a Linode.

  5. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Linode has provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the Linode is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail. To determine if the installation has completed, open the Linode’s Lish console and wait for the system login prompt to appear.

  6. Follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section.

Software installation should complete within 2-5 minutes after the Linode has finished provisioning.

Configuration Options

For advice on filling out the remaining options on the Create a Linode form, see Getting Started > Create a Linode. That said, some options may be limited or recommended based on this Marketplace App:

  • Supported distributions: CentOS 7, Debian 10, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Recommended minimum plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.

Getting Started After Deployment

  1. Log in to your Compute Instance over SSH. See Connecting to a Remote Server Over SSH for assistance. Once logged in, you should see output that contains links to your new site, phpmyadmin, and details about the software configuration (and location) on your server.

  2. You are then prompted to enter the domain you’d like to use for this instance. You can optionally use a custom domain provided you’ve already configured the A Records to point to this server’s IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Otherwise, you can skip this by pressing CTRL+C which will use the IP address or default RDNS of the Compute Instance.

    For more documentation on how to assign a domain to your Linode, please review the DNS Manager guide for instructions on setting up your DNS records in the Cloud Manager, and read through DNS Records: An Introduction for general information about how DNS works.
  3. Apply the Let’s Encrypt SSL if your domain is pointed to the server already. Enter y and type your email address.

    A message that reads Certificate has been successfully installed..... appears. If you’d like to force HTTPS rewrites, enter y again at the prompt.

  4. Proceed through any remaining prompts, using whichever options you wish.

Configure WordPress

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to your Compute Instance’s IPv4 address or the custom domain you are using. The following page appears:

  2. Select your preferred language and click the Continue button.

  3. The next page should be the Welcome page. Type the required details to complete the installation, save the password in a secure location and click the Install WordPress button.
