I am preparing a new WordPress website Architect2Succeed.com which is aimed at my profession as an IT architect. .
When I setup Fossadventures.com I didnt make an installation instruction as I was not sure that everything would be as I liked. Which turned out to be true as I have switched from HackHHVM to PHP7PHP-FPM. .
In this tutorial I want to incorporate all the learnings from my previous experience. This tutorial is likely to be very beneficial for all Linux beginners who want to install WordPress from scratch on a VPS server running openSUSE Tumbleweed.
This Complete DIY guide is based on learnings from other great tutorials. See reference list below. I like to send out a huge thanks to the writers of these tutorials. I have combined their learnings and added some of my own. .
The first thing to do is to purchase an openSUSE VPS. There are various options available. However not all of them document the openSUSE version that they offer which is a big miss in my opinion. Prices do vary which means that you have to think about where these organizations have cut corners. Personally I went with Transip.nl. But I feel that Linode would also be a good option. .
