and after I search the command to install wordpress default script.

I am sorry maybe I dont search well in the doc.

Thanks a lot:

I am here right now I am searchering the websites directories.

root@websites:~# virtualmin install-script --type wordpress --domain DOMAIN --version 5.8.2 /home/cashdrone/public_html/

i try to pass the website directory

Do you know where is stored is the the website directory ?

Happy holidays !

Best Regards,


Adjust to:

virtualmin install-script -domain DOMAIN --db “mysql DBNAME” --path / --type wordpress --version latest

In the above…

DOMAIN implies the domain you want to install script to.

DBNAME would be the name of the database where WordPress would install to.

–path / implies that you want WordPress installed at https://DOMAIN/

–version latest will install the latest stable version of WordPress, much easier then specifying a version unless you want to install an older version (not usually logical)

If you want further explanations and help regarding the “install-script” command, please refer to:

Perfect, it is working
