Scripts to help setup your server

Setting up your server to be correctly configured to accept traffic and proxy it back to the correct applications can be difficult at times.

Ok it’s not really that difficult, especially with Digital ocean providing lovely guides for free on basicaly… anything!

But these can take time to get setup, which is why a number of automated tools exist. Mainly for a learning excercise for myself, I wanted to build my own automation to get the type of servers I was commonly using quickly set up, to help improve my own productivity.

So far I’ve written two main scripts, but will expand on these in time:

  • LEMP stack setup
  • WordPress install

You can view the detailed instructions for these scripts at and view the source code on github.
