Now, I’m assuming you have your account ready! So, lets get jump into the LEMP stack installation process.
There are two ways to install but in this article we are using simplest way to do the things!
First of, click on the “Create” button and choose the “Droplets”.
Next, click on the “Marketplace”
Next choose the “LEMP on 18.04” don’t get confused with “LAMP on 18.04”. We have to select the “LEMP on 18.04”, this 18.04 might be update when you’re reading this article just remember choose LEMP.
Scroll down and select your prefered plan in my case, I am using the $5 a month.
If you wish you can add addons which will cost you a bit extra but one thing, I highly recommend is to “enable backups”. You already the importance of backups.
Then choose the prefered datacenter, where your most of users comes from.
Then scroll down to the bottom and name your droplet. I’m using testlemp
And then hit “Create” and that it. The server will start installing the droplet in your account. It will take a while.
You will receive your droplet username and password on your email address and you are ready to go!
