Can not install Wordpress --> Errors while processing mariadb-server


#1

Hi EE Community

I set up a fresh instance on Google Cloud Platform with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and run all updates. But when I tried to install Wordpress (–wpredis) I get this error:

patric@domain-com:~$ sudo ee site create domain.com --wpredis

I tried to install EasyEngine and Wordpress a few times today, always with a new and fresh GCP instance. I also tried Ubuntu 16.04. I tried --wp and --wpsc. I tried it with root@. But I always get the same error.

Can anybody help me?

Many thanks!!! Patric

Hello, it seems EasyEngine isn’t able to install MariaDB. You can try to install it manually :

apt update && apt install mariadb-server -y

A tutorial is also available in our knowledgebase :

Hello @patric… Which version of EE are you installing?

Did you use:

wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee && sudo bash ee

I just tried to install EE on a fresh server and got the following error:

 Oops Something went wrong!!
 Check logs for reason `tail /var/log/ee/ee.log` & Try Again!!!

I checked the log file:

 tail /var/log/ee/ee.log

…and it returned this error:

Errors were encountered while processing:
 mariadb-server-10.1
 mariadb-server
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

So I followed just the first part of @virtubox 's instructions from: https://kb.virtubox.net/knowledgebase/install-latest-mariadb-release-easyengine/

 curl -sS https://downloads.mariadb.com/MariaDB/mariadb_repo_setup \
 | sudo bash -s -- --mariadb-server-version=10.3 --skip-maxscale

…and then executed:

 ee stack install --web

…again. The install completed as normal. It seems there is an issue with the MariaDB packages and/or package repo when installing on Ubuntu.

 ee stack status

…returns normal after following these instructions.

Hi bamajr

So I followed all your steps and I didn’t get en error. Thank you very much!

I then installed Wordpress with --wpredis. But when I checked the site, there is only the nginx welcome site and no Wordpress.

I’m a bit tired of all this testing and don’t get it to work. easyengine is not that easy… at least for a beginner like me…

What is your website’s URL?

I tried it one more time and now everything is working!

Thank you very much for your help!
