Fail to install WordPress

Hello, i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong, i create a site using ee site create --wpfc, but after i insert the DB prefix show this error:

root@rhuancarlos:/# ee site create --wpfc Running pre-update checks, please wait... Setting up NGINX configuration [Done] Setting up webroot [Done] Downloading Wordpress [Done] Enter the MySQL database name [sheepthemes_com]: db_sheepthemes Enter the MySQL database user name [sheepthemes_com]: user_sheepthemes Enter the MySQL database password [wZ7pNqxJFv8z9DM]: Setting up database [Done] Enter the WordPress table prefix [wp_]: sheep_ Oops Something went wrong !! Calling cleanup actions ... Reload : nginx [OK] Check logs for reason `tail /var/log/ee/ee.log` & Try Again!!! root@rhuancarlos:/#

This is my ee.log:

I did a migration from a site using the updraft plugin after that, i deleted the site that made ​​the migration, but when I try to reinstall or install any other site is giving this error.

same problem, I already deploy server ubuntu and debian still can not create website wordpress

I create a new Droplet on DigitalOcean to test, but don’t work too, show the same error message even with no site have been installed before on droplet

I can’t create a WordPress site too. I think it has something to do with the latest WordPress update (version 4.4) and not so much about EasyEngine, but I can be mistaken.

Here’s my ee.log dump:

Any help would be highly appreciated, since I’m fairly new to EE. Thank you so much in advance.

It makes sense , since the version was released today


Please update your EasyEngine version to get fix for the issue. WP-CLI version needed to be upgraded to work with WordPress 4.4.

Can you please help me with this situation?



Seems like issue with your ~/.gitconfig File. Can you check reinstalling after reset gitconfig?

Hi Harshad,

Can you please guide me regarding the steps to do the same?

Hi Harshad,

I managed to complete the update procedure by resetting the gitconfig file, but now I have an another issue.

Whenever I am running any of the ee command, I am getting following message and nothing seems to be happening.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/sbin/ee", line 5, in from pkg_resources import load_entry_point File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/", line 2749, in working_set = WorkingSet._build_master() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/", line 444, in _build_master ws.require(__requires__) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/", line 725, in require needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements)) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/", line 628, in resolve raise DistributionNotFound(req) pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: pystache

Can you please let me know what it is all about?
