Hi Lex,

I think I have a better idea.

Why don't you give a try to Webinoly and then you tell us how awesome was your experience.

Regards.

I just did ... I installed it on a fresh 18.04 server and tried to create a site ... It gave me the following error (I followed the install page on the site) : 

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

============================================

    [Error]: Database conection failed.

============================================

I didn't do much except say Y to a new database and accept what I was given by pressing ENTER ... 

Besides that it tells me : nginx.service is not active, cannot reload..... After an integrity check it gives me this : 

 sudo webinoly -config-load

 Verifying integrity of the entire Webinoly system...

[INFO] File: /etc/nginx/.htpasswd not found

 Integrity test passed!!

nginx.service is not active, cannot reload.

  Configuration file not found or is corrupted!

So my first impression ... I don't know :)

OK .. my bad .. I accidentally took a digital ocean snapshot that still had EE installed on it... then I accidentally installed webinoly on top of that ...

Imagine ..

I'll try it on a really clean server. ..

Okay .. it doesn't work on a clean server either ... 

ubuntu 18.04, digital ocean.

The install of webinoly is fine, but creating a site is impossible for me ...

    [Error]: Database conection failed.

Hi Lex,

That's really weird!

Create a site is a basic function that has been tested a lot of times.

I don't know why you are using config-load command. You shouldn't! At least not for what you want.

Please, follow the basic installation example suggested at the end of the installation page in Webinoly site and be sure you are using a fresh server.

Regards.

Well... I didn't do anything out of the ordinary .. just what's written on the site ..

So, I put up a 16.04 server and I could get a site created. ... However ... is it normal that once the site is created and I go the web address, I have install wordpress from there ?

I am getting an online wordpress install .... (that's really weird to me )

In the terminal output you pasted in a comment above I see you were using the config-load command, if not properly used it could easily break your server.

If you choose WP when created a site you will have WordPress installed when you go to the browser, it's a clean install and you need to start the configuration process, we don't create undesired users as EE does.

On the other hand, do you think it's an issue with 18.04?
by
All I've done is follow the quick setup ... pasted both lines in the terminal window...

Did it on a clean ubuntu 18.04  .... that didn't work
Did the same on a clean ubuntu 16.04 ... that worked ...

Now I've tried the 18.04 again ... and now it worked ... difference: the first time I had UFW configured (as I do always) and now I didn't have it enabled wile installin webinoly and creating a site.

Should that make a difference ?
by Expert
In the installation page in Webinoly site, you can see the required firewall configuration (ports). So, that's why you are having issues with UFW.
by
Okay. .. So, I found out that the problem with the DB connection happens only if I have performed an apt-get update / apt-get upgrade process on ubuntu 18.04 ...

Yes. easyengine is junk... pure trash. IF ANYTHING... you should be using CENTMIN MOD LEMP WEB STACK instead of Webinoly.

http://centminmod.com

I wouldn't say that EE is complete junk ... But it has it's problems.

Centminmod would mean I have to swtich to CentOS ... and that's not an option ... I'm trying out Webinoly now and I'm reasonably pleased after I got it working... It's more intuitive than EE for sure. ...
