    sudo bash /var/www/ss-install

    or

    ss install

    they both do the same thing and you can run anytime you want no problem

    In fact SlickStack recommends running ss-install at least 2x for new servers because sometimes the WordPress database doesn’t populate correctly, resulting in 403 denied errors when WP Core tries to redirect to /wp-admin/install.php to populate the database because SlickStack blocks that URL for security reasons.

    Currently Let’s Encrypt (Certbot) also fails on the first run too, for reasons nobody has been able to figure out yet, but the 2nd installation attempt always fixes it.

    SlickStack installation is considered idempotent which means no matter how many times you run it will always have same result so there is no conflict.
