How to install WordPress On Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux - LinuxConfig.org


#1

Whether or not you like it, WordPress is a huge deal. It powers a gigantic portion of the Internet, and it remains one of the easiest ways to get a website online. Installing WordPress is dead simple, once you have a LAMP or LEMP server running on Ubuntu. This guide piggy-backs on the existing PHP server guides to get you running WordPress in as little time as possible.

On executing the first command i get this:

Package php-mcrypt is a virtual package provided by:
php7.0-mcrypt 7.0.28-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 [Not candidate version]

E: Package 'php-mcrypt' has no installation candidate
