Lightning-fast WordPress on Nginx

ss install wordpress config

Reinstalls the wp-config.php file using the boilerplate that SlickStack maintains on GitHub. The boilerplate will be downloaded to your localhost server, then using the settings you’ve chosen in your ss-config file, a unique and secure wp-config.php file will be generated.

Keep in mind that wp-config.php is meant to be read-only on SlickStack servers, and should NEVER be modified manually, because any changes will be overwritten the next time you reinstall your server.
