    Hello everyone, i use ISPConfig for Wordpress websites only. But it is really annoying to open remote desktop everytime when creating a new website and install Wordpress manually in there. I was thinking about some automatization, for example checkbox in ISPConfig to run the installation script when creating new website. I was looking at Directive Snippets aswell as into conf and conf-custom directories but could not find anything. Is there someone who can help me?

    Thank you so much!

    There is none. Do search the forum if anyone have that shared, if any. Or google for it.
    For what? There are a lot on how to make WP works. Also about conf and conf-custom directories. Again do search the forum first for what you want.

    you'd have to make an interactive script / have a config form first, or have a username/password generator as part of your script.
    when creating the website, it would also need to create the database and database user, i'd assume via the ispconfig api, using the details given to the script/form or by the generator. i think using wp-cli in the script would be the easiest way to instal and configurel wordpress, but then you'd also need to create an ssh user for the website, add wp-cli to the jailkit for the website, and run the wp-cli commands as that site owner.

    Well, all i need is to create some php file (in my case wordpress_auto_install.php, located in ispconfig/interface/web) with script that would ONLY download and extract Wordpress in a web directory for every new created website. Something like this:

    function add_wordpress($client_id, $domain) {
        # Download and extract WordPress
        exec("tar -xzvf latest.tar.gz");
        # move files to webroot
        exec("mv wordpress/* /var/www/clients/$client_id/$domain/web");
    And then create new entry, but i dont really know where.. I tried to place code below into ispconfig/server/lib/ but it doesnt work.
    $conf['interface_modules']['wordpress_auto_install'] = 'usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/wordpress_auto_install.php';
    Is there someone who can help me?

    But it'd be much better to configure the database immediately as well... so it's a bit more work.

    Sure, I'd like to have such a feature as well.
    I think it's better to model this after the plugin's we have. E.g server/plugins-available/
