    Hi, i'm new to lemp/lamp stacks and i try to run install wordpress with this slack on a VPS. I'm really a beginner so i would very appreciate if you can explain without shortcut.

    I successfully installed the centmin mod initial install and the index page is displaying.

    then i tried menu option 22 to install wordpress.

    but when i go on my server i got this messages.

    server_ip/wordpress = 404 no found (nginx)

    so it seem to not work. if someone can help me :)

    this is the log of the menu option 22

    Nginx 1.17.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    the clue is the message below

    Code (Text):
    (B[m[1;37;40mvhost for already exists
    (B[m[1;37;40m/home/nginx/domains/ already exists

    So wordpress install didn't complete fully as there should be more steps output etc - see example at

    This means domain already exists on the server so the Nginx vhost for wordpress and wordpress install aborted and didn't complete.

    When you install Centmin Mod it's setup a main hostname nginx vhost host for server which is where Nginx default install index page is shown. Accessing server via IP address will show that page and it's correct and should be left as is as the main hostname site is also used for statistics pages outlined here.

    When you create a new Nginx vhost site via menu option 2, 22 or nv commands, you have a separate Nginx vhost directory structure. The differences are outlined on official Config file page and at Getting Started Guide step 1 and bottom of that page here.
    Possibly why you get already exists is if you setup incorrect the main server hostname as instead of say so that it is same as intended wordpress domain name = When you run menu option 22, it will then detect main hostname as already existing and abort.

    What does your /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.conf and /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/ or contents look like ? Make sure virtual.conf main hostname's server_name isn't same as any added nginx vhost site's domain name as per Getting Started Guide step 1, the main hostname needs to be unique.

    You can check via recursive grep filter of your domain name in vhost directory at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d
    Code (Text):
    grep -rnw '' /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d

    If both virtual.conf for main hostname and or yourdomain.conf listed server_name are the same then that is why. Main hostname needs changing as outlined in Getting Started Guide step 1.

    Thank you Eva for your fast reply ! i finally suceed to install wordpress with your advice :)

    i deleted the file about the domain here /home/nginx/domains/ and started again the install. But this time it went until the end.

    I think during my first try i inadvertently cancelled the install. would have be nice if the installer proposed me to remake the file and continue the install.

    In fact the installation is really super easy and fast with the installer when you understand what you do :) Thank you for this great work.

    Would be nice a video for beginner of 5 min how to install wordpress with centminmod from the start to the end.
