Wordpress Nginx Auto Installer (WP Super Cache)

Centmin Mod has an inbuilt Wordpress + Wordpress Super Cache auto installer which is invoked via centmin.sh menu option 22. It is recommended to always ensure your Centmin Mod installed code is up to date before running centmin.sh menu option 22. To update follow instructions at http://centmin.sh/upgrade.html. A Wordpress7 demo site was created using this Wordpress auto installer.

Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 branch has further improved this Wordpress auto installer switching from WP Super Cache to an improved KeyCDN Cache Enable WP Plugin instead as well as general improvements in the initial Wordpress auto installation routine and Nginx security and performance setup.

This Wordpress installer uses the WP-CLI command line tool to automate the installation of Wordpress itself and Wordpress database setup along with auto installing and activating a select few Wordpress Plugins. WP-CLI tool only works for PHP versions 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and 7.0. PHP 7.0 is not compatible with WP-CLI tool and thus centmin.sh menu option 22 won't work properly with PHP 7.0 right now. WP-CLI issue #1842.

The auto installer routine installs some security and performance related Wordpress Plugins and auto activates some. Some other Wordpress Plugins are installed but not auto activated so you can decide yourself whether or not they are useful. You can see that Wordpress plugins are installed in the full example output at bottom of this page. The auto installed Wordpress Nginx vhost site is locked down tight out of the box with HTTP authentication password protected wp-login.php and Nginx request based rate limiting setup for wp-login.php and xmlrpc.php files.

Once the installer completes, you will also have a list of steps to complete manually to properly configure your Wordpress installation to enable Wordpress Super Cache plugin support and also properly set up other auto installed Wordpress plugins.

Verifying WP Super Cache is Working

To verify if Wordpress Super Cache is working you can in a private incognito web browser session view a Wordpress page's source code and at bottom near the footer you should see something like this

<!-- Dynamic page generated in 0.209 seconds. -->
<!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2015-09-03 17:58:31 -->

Or from SSH command line type

curl -s http://yourwpdomain.com | tail -5

output would be something like below - of particular need to ensure there is a line that says Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache

curl -s http://yourwpdomain.com | tail -5
<!-- Dynamic page generated in 0.209 seconds. -->
<!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2015-09-03 17:58:31 -->

The contents of auto generated Nginx vhost for https self-signed SSL certificate site at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain2.com.ssl.conf.

To switch to using paid and web browser trusted SSL certificates follow instructions at http://centmin.sh/nginx_domain_dns_setup.html#switchssl and http://centmin.sh/nginx_configure_https_ssl_spdy.html to switch the following parameters:

  ssl_certificate      /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/newdomain2.com/newdomain2.com.crt;
  ssl_certificate_key  /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/newdomain2.com/newdomain2.com.key;

and enable (uncomment - remove hash # in front of the lines for the following)

  #resolver 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4 valid=10m;
  #resolver_timeout 10s;
  #ssl_stapling on;
  #ssl_stapling_verify on;
  #ssl_trusted_certificate /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/newdomain2.com/newdomain2.com-trusted.crt;


Note, Nginx now has switched from SPDY to HTTP/2 for SSL, so need to follow the changes outlined at http://centmin.sh/http2-nginx.html#http2spdy

listen directive changes with replacing spdy with http2 parameter

  listen 443 ssl spdy;

becomes

  listen 443 ssl http2;

If you do not replace the listen directive and have Nginx HTTP/2 compiled, you will receive an error on Nginx restart similar to the one below.

ngxrestart
nginx: [emerg] invalid parameter "spdy": the SPDY module was deprecated, use the HTTP/2 module instead in /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.ssl.conf:15
nginx: configuration file /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf test failed

Some SPDY specific options will need to be removed for Nginx HTTP/2 patched server to start up properly. These options include:

Error on Nginx restart after HTTP/2 patch applied for unsupported SPDY options

  nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "spdy_keepalive_timeout"
