how many times can you run ss-install safely?
- This topic is empty.
If something didn’t install correctly can I just run ss-install again or??
Yes, unlimited times.
sudo bash /var/www/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.
If something didn’t install correctly
what didn’t install correctly?
Sometimes I run ss-install just because I’m bored…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
