This is something that I found myself doing more and more recently is using SSH to perform tasks I previously found tedious.
Let’s assume you would like your wordpress installation in the public_html folder
cd public_html wget --no-check-certificate https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz tar xfz latest.tar.gz mv wordpress/* ./ rmdir ./wordpress/ rm -f latest.tar.gz
a breakdown of each command line:
enter the public_html directory. Skip if you are already in the directory you’d like to install WordPress to.
wget --no-check-certificate https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
Downloads the the latest tar.gz file. We use the –no-check-certificate because –secure-protocol doesn’t work with a wildcard domain.
tar xfz latest.tar.gz
untar & uncompress into the wordpress folder
mv wordpress/* ./
Moves everything from the wordpress folder to the current directory
Removes the empty /wordpress folder
rm -f latest.tar.g
Removes the downloaded file
That’s it! Now just visit your site using a browser and start your config process. Happy coding!
