In my previous tutorial for installing Wordpress on a Raspberry Pi, I showed how to do a "quick and dirty" installation, by changing ownership of the whole Wordpress installation folder to the web server process (www-data). This gets the job done, because Wordpress is able to make changes to its own configuration files, themes and plugins.
This tutorial will show you how to take a vanilla Raspbian image and turn it into a HTTP server hosting one or more WordPress website.
I’ve previously written a few bits and pieces about WordPress, but I’ve never actually covered how to install it on a Raspberry Pi until now.
This was one of the first things I did with my Pi, so I’m going to assume you know very little and try to be as detailed as possible.
The actual WordPress bit is very quick and easy once the ground work is done: wordpress.org has a 5 minute installation guide, but it doesn’t tell you how to do the difficult bits! This tutorial will cover everything you need, from the ground up.
