Last week, my colleague asked me to set up a Wordpress server, and I remember how painful to setup it many years ago. It requires MySQL and PHP. Therefore, it may introduce many security leaks. My website at the moment still can receive Wordpress attack.
Today, I discovered a rapid solution to set up a Wordpress server using Docker, and it also solves the problem with Let’s Encrypt.
Let’s check it out.
Before we start, if you haven’t configured your DNS, please go to DNS manager, setup A record for

Step 3: Setup WebProxy
Many thanks to @evertramos, he did everything for setting up the webproxy:
.env with the following content:
Then strat the script:
If you want to configure more options, please check out his repository.
Step 4: Setup Wordpress
Again, thanks to @evertramos, he did everything for setting up the Wordpress:
Also, set up an

Then put the following information to the config file:
Then restart the server:
To use SFTP group, you need:
Done, and have fun :)
