Fresh Debian 7.8 minimal install

Ran into several issues:

  1. Install script fails without any info why with minimal Debian 7.8 - Resolved by installing ca-certificates. Should be a dependency that is either installed by the script or pointed out in the install docs as required.

  2. Wordpress tables are not being created e.g.:

“Unable to create WordPress tables for, exit status = 1”

So for me to get a site installed:

sudo ee site create --wp

sudo cp /var/www/ /var/www/

cd /var/www/

sudo vi wp-config.php (Change localhost to

sudo wp core install --allow-root --admin_user=admin --admin_password=password --admin_email=root@

sudo service nginx restart

BTW - I installed EasyEngine:

wget -qO ee && sudo bash ee

source /etc/bash_completion.d/ee

sudo ee stack install all

Thanks, enderst

For kicks I created another server, this time minimal Ubuntu-14.04.1-server with nothing selected like with Debian 7.8. Everything worked as expected no issues.

Hi @enderst

It’s been a long time, and we haven’t heard from you. It looks like your issue is resolved.

I am closing this support topic for now. Feel free to create a new support topic if you have any queries further. :slight_smile:
