Most free panels have automatic installers or add-ons, that are regularly updated.

I know that it hasn't been updated, but it works like a charm until now. It doesn't include php7 but that one can be installed manually. And I don't use any kind of panel (free or paid) because I don't like them.

Too bad Webuzo doesn't include WordPress to their free plan. I'm looking for a free alternative, if there is.

Serverpilot.io could be great a choice. They recommend to use it with DigitalOcean (because of the affiliate) but it works with any VPS provider. I'm planning to try it too.

Guess that's deliberately!   Wink

That's what got me to change to the paid one.  I thought 25 US$ a year was not too bad. 

I don't think there is a free alternative panel for loading WordPress.  Now if VestaCP could add a WordPress installer to its panel, it would be a really good feature to have for them.  Maybe I should suggest it in their Forum.  See the response I'll get.  lol

@deanhills : WP is easy enough to be installed from the commandline.

But a Softaculous licence helps a lot, I suppose.

Can I/we use it one a another server in case we change our server provider?

Yes you can.  Best solution is to open a ticket with Softaculous with your account with them to ask them to change the IP number of the License.  And it works like a charm.  We had a turn around in service of less than a day when we went through this experience. 

We fumbled a little initially though.  As when we discovered that the license dashboard wouldn't allow one to change the license number, we used a trial account of Softaculous as an interim measure.  Then through an inquiry in the Softaculous Forum learned the best way to solve the problem is to put in a ticket request.

I had always used commandline and will be since its faster than other ways. FTP takes forever to upload so i go with command line

I just wget the tar.gz archive of the latest stable ten create a user and database for it then setup things.


IMHO, it's not that hard. It's a learning experience as well.

wut, i didn't know that you can install wordpress from the command line!
i guess they don't call it "the famous 5 minute wordpress install" for nothing :D

I always do it from the web interface, I download the zipped file on the VPS, unpack it, and go through the installation from the web interface. that always does it, I never knew that one can install wordpress from the command line, I must give it a try and say it for my self, it must have like more options or advanced stuff than the usual web installation method.
Also, i've tried uploading the wordpress files using ftp, i ran through many troubles, it would've been easier if my provider allowed to unzip files that are uploaded, the only options i had at that time was to either install an old version of wordpress, or upload wordpress files vie ftp, i've tried to, but things didn't went smooth as i expected :/

Maybe it's the same thing for me - however it starts with the command line for loading the actual WordPress script.  I'm using a panel for creating the database, and the command line only for loading WordPress script from wget.  Once the script is loaded, it becomes web interface for me all the way.

This tutorial from DigitalOcean is probably more of the genuine command line installation variety:
