WordPress + Lighttpd on Webuzo

Lighttpd Web ServerWordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

Lighttpd Web ServerA single WordPress consumes all the memory on a VPS as in and poorly managed Apache Setup. For this reason WordPress can be deployed easily using Lighttpd. With “lighty” the WordPress installation on a VPS works like a charm. Running multiple sites on a single VPS with just 1 GB RAM, what more can you expect from “Lighty”.

Lighttpd does not use a .htaccess file like Apache does, so you can consider writing your own rewrite rules and include them into the Lighttpd configuration and load all the necessary module to suit the requirements for the site. Webuzo Lighttpd Setup is pre-loaded to have WordPress up and running thus fulfilling the basic requirements.

Webuzo Application Manager provides the complete package to setup the LLMP (Linux, Lighttpd, MySQL and PHP ) Stack and WordPress just by a click of a button. The default installation of Webuzo serves Apache as the default Webserver.

Quick guide to have LLMP setup by default.

LLMP can be installed by a click for the Webuzo Enduser Panel as well as explained in the following tutorial.
